Choosing a right ADSP kit.

Hi there;
We are going to buy  some blackfin kit( ADSP-BFxx kit) for processing mixed  noisy signals.
The minimum requirements are :
-the medium frequency is 10kHz.
-multichannels analog input and output
- the microcontroller has a block for LCD  
- no need to a programmer(JTAG, ...) to download the program to the micro
- having a free access to software tools/IDE
-free C/C++ compiling tools
- room for other externders like audio, video
- working with Windows 10

1) After I saw some of Blackfin- kit, I learned that
ADSP-BF707 EZ-Kit is not worked with VisualDSP++ 5.1 but it does with CrossCore. Is it the same as I have to buy CrossCore?What about ADZS-21569-EZKIT?

2) I have tried to download VisualDSP++ 5.1 without requiring license from me , but couldn't execute the program. What was the problem?

3) Please recommend  a good and flexible ADSP

My best regards

    Hi Joel,

    We understand that you have already contacted our private support. Please continue the discussion there regarding this.

    1) After I saw some of Blackfin- kit, I learned that

    >> Yes,You have to buy CCES. BF70x processor work with CCES only.

    2) I have tried to download VisualDSP++ 5.1 without requiring license from me , but couldn't execute the program. What was the problem?
    >> We have a Test Drive license which is available to download free of charge from our website. This license entitles you to 90 days of Simulator and Emulator sessions before the license expires. You can obtain a Test Drive here -
    form.analog.com/.../visualDSPTestDrive.aspx

    If still you are facing the same issue, please share us the processor that you are using and procedure that you have followed to reproduce the issue.

    3) Please recommend  a good and flexible ADSP
    >> The ADSP-BF60x and ADSP-BF70x are the new processors in Blackfin family. The ADSP-BF60x processors are the Dual-Core processor up to 1GHz with Hardware Support for HD Video Analytics. The ADSP-BF70x processors are the latest Low Power 400MHz Blackfin+ embedded processor with 1MByte L2 SRAM & DDR2/LPDDR Interface.

    You can get more information about Blackfin processors in the below link.

    We have Processors Software and Tools page provides a convenient look-up table to indicate to users what evaluation platforms, extender cards, emulators, software development tools, and middleware are available for the specific processors you have chosen to evaluate for your designs.

    If you can provide more information on other requirements from the external interfaces, the speed grade, memory requirements, package, which you are looking for, then we can help you narrow down to select the right derivative in processor family.

    We have evaluation kits available for different processors which will provide a platform for customer to evaluate our DSPs. When you navigate through our product specific page you would find its evaluation platform with associate
