PEEDI supports the debugging and FLASH programming of Analogue Devices Blackfin Processors. This includes all Blackfin CPUs like ADSP-BF532, ADSP-BF533, ADSP-BF537, ADSP-BF538, ADSP-BF539, ADSP-BF561.
PEEDI supports all internal memories: Instruction SRAM, Data SRAM, Scratchpad SRAM as well as the ability to program and access linearly flash devices that are bigger than the visible external asynchronous memory space.
PEEDI can be used in standalone mode to program more that 800 flash devices as well as AT91SAM7, LPC2000, MAC7100, STR7, STR9, TMS470, NAND FLASH, Atmel DataFlash families, MPC5500 families, ColdFire MCF52XX and Blackfin.
PEEDI supports native GNU gdb/Eclipse and provides a high real download speed – up to 1.25 Mbytes/s. For rapid starting a new project Ronetix provides complete GNU toolchains including Eclipse for Linux and Windows for ARM/XScale, PowerPC, ColdFire and Blackfin. The toolchains can be downloaded from the company’s website.
For an easy and quick start in the Blackfin programming Ronetix provides a Starter Kit with ADSP-BF537. The Starter Kit consists of a CPU Module and Base Board from the Austrian company Bluetechnix, the high speed JTAG Emulator PEEDI and open source software: GNU toolchain, U-Boot and uClinux.
