Experiences with the Blackfin architecture in an embedded systems lab
At Northeastern University we are building a number of courses upon a common embedded systems platform. The goal is to reduce the learning curve associated with new architectures and programming environments. The platform selected is based on the Analog Devices Blackfin digital signal processor. In this paper we discuss our recent experience developing anew undergraduate embedded systems lab. Students learn to utilize the embedded DSP platform to address a number of different applications, including controller design, RS-232 communication, encryption, and image processing. This platform provides a rich design exploration sandbox replete with programming and simulation tools. We describe our use of this platform in our Microprocessor-based Design Laboratory and discuss how this platform can be used in a range of classes.
