Power efficient processors target
Processors are optimised for performance-demanding portable applications including portable media players, voice over IP phones, IP cameras and mobile TV devices.
Analog Devices is expanding its Blackfin line with the ADSP-BF52x family, a scalable series of processors optimised for performance-demanding portable applications including portable media players (PMPs), voice over IP (VoIP) phones, IP cameras and mobile TV devices Advancing the dynamic power management capabilities of Blackfin to achieve the line's best power efficiency yet - as low as 0.16mW/MHz core power at 250MHz - these newest processors offer system designers a breadth of choice with a high-performance/low-power series (ADSP-BF527/BF525/BF522) operating at 600MHz, and an ultra-low-power series running at up to 400MHz
All incorporate Blackfin Lockbox Secure Technology to provide capabilities for implementing the next generation of security - for uses that range from safeguarding intellectual property to protected e-commerce and social networking - on digital media devices.
"The new Blackfin processors enable developers to flexibly create their next generation of battery-conserving portable products", said Will Strauss, President of DSP market watcher Forward Concepts.
"With Blackfin, a system designer can choose the right profile for his application at the appropriate price".
