Kit Overview

The ADSP-TS201S EZ-KIT LiteADSP-TS201S EZ-KIT Lite provides developers with a cost-effective method for initial evaluation of the ADSP-TS201SADSP-TS201S TigerSHARC® Processor and its multiprocessing capabilities. This EZ-KIT Lite includes two ADSP-TS201S processors on a desktop evaluation board along with fundamental debugging software to facilitate architecture evaluations via a USB-based PC-hosted tool set. With this EZ-KIT Lite, users can learn more about ADI’s ADSP-TS201SADSP-TS201S hardware and software development environments and quickly prototype applications.


The ADSP-TS201S EZ-KIT LiteADSP-TS201S EZ-KIT Lite provides an evaluation suite of the VisualDSP++ development and debugging environment with the C/C++ compiler, assembler, and linker. Via the USB interface, VisualDSP++ can communicate with the included software debug agent enabling users to perform standard debugging functions (such as read and write memory, read and write registers, load and execute executables, set and clear breakpoints, and single-step assembly, C, and C++ source code) and multiprocessor functions (such as synchronous step, synchronous run, and synchronous halt). The evaluation versions of the included software tools have limited use with the EZ-KIT Lite.


The EZ-KIT Lite’s default EPROM boot mode enables the board to be used as a standalone unit without the requirement for a PC-host. If desired, the board can boot from an optional external host port interface connector, link port or “No Boot” based on jumper selections. The EZ-KIT Lite also includes a FLASH utility that can be used to download user specific boot code to the on-board FLASH memory using the USB interface.


Key Applications: Video and communications markets including the 3G cellular and 802.16 broadband wireless base stations,Industrial and Instrumentation including military and medical
