Can I use CrossCore Embedded Studio with ADSP-21369BBPZ board?

In the Design Tools, Models, Drivers & Software section show that CrossCore works with ADSP-21369 processor. However, to CrossCore supporting board is not included to ADSP-21369 board.

Before to download this software, I want to know if can I use this software with ADSP-21369 board?

Thanks a lot!!!

  • Hi Ramses,

    Support for SHARC processors was added to CrossCore Embedded Studio in CCES 1.0.1, so please ensure you are at least using this release. The latest release can be found on the CCES product page, here:

    We also provide examples for the 21369 EZ-Board/EZ-KIT in the 21369 Board Support Package, which can be downloaded from the EZ-KIT Lite product page, which you can locate through the link below:

  • Hi Craig

    Thanks for your answer. I downloaded CrossCore 1.0.2 but when I connected the board was not recognized. However, when I installed before Visual DSP 5.0 and then install CrossCore, the computer recognized the board. So, my question Do I install always Visual DSP to allow the pc recognized ADSP-21369 board?

  • Hi Ramses,

    CrossCore Embedded Studio only supports the newer EZ-KIT Lites that comply with the RoHS directive. It may be that your EZ-KIT Lite is an old non-RoHS model? If the part number on the board is "ADZS-21369 EZLITE" it is RoHS compliant. If it is "ADDS-21369 EZLITE", it is not RoHS compliant.

    The drivers in VisualDSP++ do support both new and old EZ-KITs alike, which would then explain why the device was recognised by the PC after installing VisualDSP++.

    If you are unsure whether your board is RoHS or not, please provide details of the Board Revision - which is silk-screened on the PCB, the silicon revision - which is printed directly on the processor, and the BOM revision - which is printed on a sticker on the underside of the board (newer EZ-KITs only).

    Regards,

    Craig.
