    The ADSP-21369 EZ-KIT Lite provides developers with a cost-effective method for initial evaluation of the ADSP-21369 SHARC® Processor architecture via a USB-based, PC-hosted tool set. With this EZ-KIT Lite, users can learn more about Analog Devices' (ADI's) ADSP-21369 hardware and software development and quickly prototype a wide range of applications.

    The EZ-KIT Lite includes an ADSP-21369 SHARC Processor desktop evaluation board along with an evaluation suite of the VisualDSP ® development and debugging environment including the C/C compiler, assembler, and linker. The evaluation suite of VisualDSP is designed to be used with the EZ-KIT Lite only.

    An Analog Devices SHARC USB EZ-Extender daughter board can attach to the ADSP-21369 EZ-KIT Lite using the three expansion connectors, allowing a USB 2.0 peripheral to directly connect to the ADSP-21369 external port and interface with the EZ-KIT Lite.

    SHARC processors are based on a 32-bit super Harvard architecture that includes a unique memory architecture comprised of two large on-chip, dual-ported SRAM blocks coupled with a sophisticated I/O processor, which gives a SHARC processor the bandwidth for sustained high-speed computations. SHARC processors represents today’s de facto standard for floating-point processing, targeted toward premium audio applications.

    The evaluation system is designed to be used in conjunction with the VisualDSP ® development environment to test capabilities of the ADSP-21369 SHARC processors. The VisualDSP development environment aides advanced application code development and debug.

    Key Applications: Medical Applications, Telephony, Industrial and Instrumentation.
