Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) and National Instruments (NI) have released the NI LabVIEW Embedded Module for ADI Blackfin processors, which extends the LabVIEW graphical dataflow development environment to directly target Blackfin processors for faster embedded system development.

With a single graphical development platform, ADI and NI said they could deliver an out-of-the-box integrated solution to real-world problems, thereby empowering domain experts without embedded programming experience to overcome the traditional challenges of embedded development and deliver sophisticated applications quickly.

According to the two companies, the LabVIEW Embedded Module for Blackfin processors enables domain experts to develop their applications from algorithm design and prototyping to deployment and test--all using one platform. The graphical software includes more than 140 Blackfin-specific, hand-optimized math, analysis and signal processing functions; integrated I/O such as audio and video DACs, ADCs and CODECs; and, on-chip debugging and easy graphical interconnection via Ethernet.

The LabVIEW Embedded Module for Blackfin Processors includes the ADI VisualDSP++ C development and debugging environment for low-level access and real-time, interactive debugging and deployment directly to Blackfin. Engineers and scientists can debug code graphically in LabVIEW or simultaneously debug both the graphical code and generated C source code.

The new module is shipped with examples for applications, including audio, control, power monitoring and communications. It also provides easy connectivity to the range of NI test and measurement hardware for deploying external simulation and test methodologies early in the development process.

According to ADI and NI, industry and academic leaders are adopting the LabVIEW Embedded Module for Blackfin Processors to streamline embedded system development.
