About the ADSP-BF609 EZ-KIT Lite

The ADSP-BF609 EZ-Board is the evaluation hardware for the latest BF60x family of Blackfin Processors. 


The evaluation hardware is designed to be used in conjunction with the CrossCore® Embedded Studio development tools to test capabilities of the ADSP-BF60x Blackfin processors, and can be purchased in one of two packages:

  • ADZS-BF609-EZLITE– This package contains the BF609 EZ-Board, power supply, Stand Alone Debug Agent (SADA2), USB cable and 2GB Memory card.
  • ADZS-BF609-EZBRD – This package does not contain the Stand Alone Debug Agent (SADA2), and requires an Analog Devices USB-based Emulator or Debug Agent board.
