• BF514F Flash Programming

    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to load a program into the internal SPI Flash memory of the BF514F processor. The program simply toggles two LEDs I have on my custom board and I have tested it in debug mode and it works fine. I used the Flash Programmer provided…

  • firmware upgrade for BF514F


    I want to be able to upgrade the firmware located in the internal flash in a BF514F. I have an SD card connector hooked up to the RSI peripheral. The user would insert an SD card with the proper file, and when the BF514F was booted up, it would see…

  • BF514F UART RX DMA Problem


    I need some help on the following. This question was moved from another post to this one as the other post was answered and finalized.


    A Blackfin (BF514F) processes a bunch of measurements and then transmits it at 3125000 bps to an ARM. The ARM…

  • Booting BF514F from external flash


    I'm trying to boot my custom board from external flash (from the same family that the internal flash comes from).  I've set my project to boot from external flash (SPI Slave), intel hex, 8 bit.  I've also set the BMODE pins to boot from…

  • Blackfin JTAG Not Detected on Custom Board (USB-ICE) BF514F


    I'm having a problem on a custom board where when using the ADI VDSP++ Configurator the USB-ICE JTAG emulator does not detect a JTAG in its path when connected to our custom ADSP-BF514F board. I have a BF506F EZ Kit Lite to develop on and it detects…

  • Creating LDR file for BF514F Internal SPI Flash

    I've been researching how to go about getting working code loaded into my BF514F processor SPI internal flash on my custom target board. I'm using the GNU Blackfin Tools and have working code that I've been testing and debugging.

    Now I'd…

  • Blackfin BF514F SPORT-DMA-AD73360 Chained with Loopback


    I need help with the SPORT setup on our custom board. We are using a BF514F and a AD73360 ADC. I have the setup working perfectly with normal chained buffers. But, we have UART RX problem. Every now and again a few bytes will get corrupted (Not lost…

  • How FFT accelerator (FFTA) on ADSP-SC58x/ADSP-2158x is different as compared to ADSP-214xx processors / What are the major features of FFTA on ADSP-SC58x/ADSP-2158x ?

    FFT Accelerator on ADSP-SC58x/ADSP-2158x is a completely new design as compared to the FFT accelerator on ADSP-214xx processors. The major differences/features of the FFT accelerator on ADSPSC58x/ADSP-2158x are:

    • Unlike in ADSP-214xx, the…
  • Porting software  from ADSP-21489 to ADSP-21573 and ADSP-SC573 

    Customer ask some questions.

    Right now we have  plenty of software for ADSP-21489, but it’s quite hard to port it to ADSP-SC573 family. Code itself

    is 99% C and C++.


    Does family ADSP-SC573 have interface with external static memory like AMI for ADSP…

  • prototyping the a ADSP-TS203S design with a ADSP-TS201s or a ADSP-TS202S

    We're currently laying out a prototype PCB to take an ADSP-TS203 TigerSHARC
    Processor (i.e. with only a 32 bit cluster bus and 2 link ports). Could we fit
    an ADSP-TS201/2 to this board if we constrict external bus access to 32 bits
