BF518F Kit Lite Related

Can the Blackfin Landscape EZ Extender be used with BF518 Kit Lite also. In the information related to LCD extender, its been mentioned as

Blackfin Landscape LCD EZ-Extender for the ADSP-BF526, ADSP-BF537, ADSP-BF538, and ADSP-BF548 EZ-KIT Lites.

But in the Blackfin evaluation kits page, Blackfin Landscape LCD EZ-Extender is mentioned under BF518 also. Please clarify.

    Yes, the Landscape LCD EZ-EXTENDER is supported by the ADSP-BF518 EZ-Board/EZ-KIT Lite. Example code is provided with VisualDSP++ under:

    C:\Program Files\Analog Devices\VisualDSP 5.0 (Update 7)\Blackfin\Examples\Landscape LCD EZ-EXTENDER

    As you've correctly stated, the product page for the LCD EZ-Extender needs updating. Thanks for your feedback!



  • Thanks for your quick reply.

    Please advice where does the LCD extender needs to be plugged.

    In update 7, all the examples has been given for BF518 Kit Lite revision 1.0. But we have the older version(0.2) of the Kit Lite. Will update 7 examples support the older version of the Kit Lite also.

    The ADSP-BF518 EZ-KIT Lite rev 0.2 contains the older silicon revision 0.0 which will not be going to production.  This older revision has a discontinuous L1 memory map which was changed in silicon revision 0.1.  I recommend that you upgrade your EZ-KIT as the older silicon will have very limited support going forward.


    All the best,
