    The ADSP-21479 EZ-KIT Lite provides developers with a cost-effective method for initial evaluation of the ADSP-21478/21479 SHARC Processors via a USB-based, PC-hosted tool set. With this EZ-KIT Lite, users can learn more about the Analog Devices (ADI) ADSP-21479 hardware and software development, and quickly prototype a wide range of applications.

    The EZ-KIT Lite includes an ADSP-21479 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. The EZ-KIT Lite also comes with a standalone debug agent board that is removable to allow a user to plug-in an external emulator.

    The EZ-KIT Lite evaluation board contains an ADSP-21479 SHARC Processor. The ADSP-21479 offers a very low power and high performance in a BGA and LQFP package within the fourth generation SHARC Processor family. This feature of power makes the ADSP-21479 particularly well suited to address the automotive audio and many industrial control segments where low power is a requirement. In addition to its high core performance, the ADSP-21479 includes additional processing blocks such as FIR, IIR, and FFT accelerators to increase the total performance of the system. There is a new feature called Variable Instruction Set Architecture (VISA) that allows the code size to be decreased by 20% to 30% and increase the memory size availability. The fourth generation DSP allows the ability to connect to external memory by providing a glueless interface to 16-bit wide SDR SDRAMs.
