• On-chip flash for ADSP-BF538F and ADSP-BF539F

    It is mentioned in the data sheet that we need to connect /AMS0 to /FCE to boot
    from on-chip flash.  What should be done with the /FRESET pin?


    Typical applications using the Spansion flash device externally would tie
    /FRESET to the system…

    Hello guys,

    I am working on configuring a slave device with ADSP-BF538F and I am able to generate SPI clock and Slave select. The isssue is that I find no signal getting generated on the MOSI pin. I checked the return value of submitbuffer function which…

  • Pin Muxing in CCES 1.1.0 for ADSP-BF538F

    Hi All,

    I am using the black fin processor ADSP-BF538F in one of our project. I am using the cross core embedded studio 1.1.0 IDE for my development. I followed the procedure to create a cross core project as per the training videos and I observed that…

  • Starting with the BF538F EZ KIT


    I just got a BF538F ez kit lite and am trying to figure out how to use it. I'm trying to start just by controlling some GPIO pins. After looking through the ADSP-BF538F BF processor hardware reference I found the GPIO registers I need to use (PORTCIO_FER…

  • Minimal Requirement for Building uClinux for Blackfin BF538F


    Hope you are doing fantastic.

    I am having a query, could anybody tell me what are the minimum hardware requirements with Black Processor (ADSP-BF538F) in order to port and run uCLinux.

    Major components interfaced with Blackfin are SDRAM, AD9364  and…



    I'm using a BF538F EZ KIT and am trying to figure out sclk and cclk.  The EZ KIT supplies the blackfin processor with an input clock (maybe I can find this value in the BF538F EZ-KIT Lite Hardware Reference Manual?).  And I should use the PLL registers…

  • BF538F EZ KIT Timers


    I'm using the BF538F EZKIT and am trying to sample from an external device every 960Hz.  I'm trying to set up the core timer to toggle an LED on the EZKIT board to see if it's working.  Using the core timer registers in the HRM:




    I'm trying to use UART0 to transmit from the BF358F EZ KIT to a PC with the following settings: 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, LSB first and a baud rate calculated as: baud rate = sclk/(16 * divisor), where 1< divisor < 65536.
