|ANALOG DEVICES UNDERSCORES STRENGTH OF BLACKFIN-ENABLED AUTOMOTIVE
Norwood, MA(7/11/2005) - Analog Devices, Inc. today underscored its
commitment to the automotive telematics and infotainment industry, elaborating on its automotive vision and the
growing market for its Blackfin® Car Telematics Platform. Supported by a family of Blackfin processors, the Blackfin
Car Telematics Platform capitalizes on the power of a single processor to reduce telematics system costs, size and
development time by integrating many telematics tasks onto a single processing platform.
Processors offer a combination of DSP and microprocessor functionality, which is ideal for the embedded audio, video
and communications requirements found in the applications in today’s automobiles.
video playback systems for rear-seat entertainment to GPS-enabled navigation systems, a car is no longer just a
means for travel, it has become a rolling media processing solution,” said Mark Gill, Product Line Director,
Automotive Telematics and Infotainment Systems, at Analog Devices. “As the automotive industry looks to thread the
needle of ‘low-cost’ and ‘feature-rich’ electronics delivery – introducing high-end systems to mid-tier vehicles –
solutions like Blackfin, which can bring these features to life at the right price point, are paramount to
Blackfin Platform For Any Telematics Application
At the core of the Blackfin
Car Telematics Platform, the new Blackfin ADSP-BF534 and ADSP-BF539 processors offer connectivity to vehicle CAN and
MOST bus networks. Supported by the INTEGRITY Real-Time Operating System from Green Hills Software, the Blackfin
processor can execute the real time signal processing, the vehicle network stacks, diagnostics code and the software
download functions. By doing so it eliminates the need for any additional microprocessors in the system.
The inherent high computational performance of the Blackfin processor allows sophisticated
hands-free applications, combining the latest speech recognition software, multi-microphone Noise and Echo
cancellation algorithms and text-to-speech applications, to run on a low cost, 400 MHz processor, along with the CAN
network protocol, Bluetooth stacks and system general diagnostics code.
Furthermore, in the area
of video entertainment, a single Blackfin processor can connect to the MOST bus, extract and decrypt the Audio and
Video bit streams, decode them and present high quality movie experience to the rear seats of the car.
Third Party Support
Critical to ADI’s success is its relationship with leading third parties such as
Green Hills Software. Green Hills Software provides secure, industry-leading development tools, such as the
award-winning MULTI® Integrated Development Environment (IDE); C, C++ and EC++ compilers; Green Hills ProbeTM and
Slingshot™ probe. These tools offer embedded system developers in the automotive industry a best-in-class solution
that will address all of their development needs as well as broad operating system support, thereby enabling them to
get their products to market in a faster and less expensive manner.
Blackfin in Convergent
Analog Devices’ Blackfin Processors embody a new breed of 16/32-bit embedded processor with the
industry’s highest performance and power efficiency for applications where a convergence of capabilities –
multiformat audio, video, voice and image processing; multi-mode baseband and packet processing; and real-time
security and control processing -- are critical. It is this powerful combination of software flexibility and
scalability that has gained Blackfin widespread adoption in convergent applications such as portable and networked
media players; automotive telematics, infotainment and driver assistance; satellite and terrestrial radio; and
networked security systems.
