National Instruments and Analog Devices have announced the release of the National Instruments LabVIEW Embedded Module for ADI Blackfin Processors 2.0, an extension of the LabVIEW graphical development environment that directly targets ADI Blackfin processors.
Since its introduction in 2006, the LabVIEW Embedded Module for Blackfin Processors has been adopted by engineers for the rapid development of sophisticated embedded systems ranging from cutting-edge medical devices to subsea monitoring systems. Now, the latest version of the module delivers increased efficiency in code generation and targets four additional Blackfin processors including the $5 ADSP-BF531.
The LabVIEW Embedded Module for ADI Blackfin Processors 2.0 introduces new features to further simplify and enhance embedded system development. The latest version of the module targets four additional Blackfin Processors including the $5 ADSP-BF531 processor, which is well suited for cost-sensitive applications such as portable test equipment, embedded modems, biometrics and consumer audio. The module also delivers increased efficiency for embedded system development including an average 36 percent increase in generated code performance, improved debugging capabilities and integration with LabVIEW 8.20. In addition, the module adds new drivers for Two Wire Interface (TWI) and a CMOS image sensor.
