With the new Analog Devices (ADI) Blackfin Test Integration Toolkit for LabVIEW, engineers can now use National Instruments' LabVIEW graphical development environment with ADI's VisualDSP++ embedded development environment to streamline the development of Blackfin-based systems.
The toolkit is included free with ADI's VisualDSP++ software and hardware evaluation kits. It integrates with NI LabVIEW to provide design engineers with a single development, prototyping, and test environment for applications running on the Blackfin microprocessor.
"By collaborating with National Instruments on this product, we can provide our customers with solutions that help them integrate measurements throughout the design process," said Gerald McGuire, Analog Devices general manager, Media Platforms and Services, DSP and Systems Products Division.
Micronas developed this 8/16 bit controller platform, which it claims lowers overall system cost while increasing the range of memory options. The CDC 16xxF family has three CAN interfaces, a power-saving module, five stepper motors drivers, five pulse-width modules, a sound generator, an integrated LCD module, and other peripherals.
