The SoM-536EM is Based on the Analog Devices Blackfin ADSP-BF536 processor. This embedded processor has an Ethernet MAC built-in along with 3 serial ports. The BF536 combines a 32-bit RISC-like instruction set and dual 16-bit multiply accumulate (MAC) signal processing functionality with the ease-of-use attributes found in general-purpose microcontrollers. This combination of processing attributes enables Blackfin Processors to perform equally well in both signal processing and control processing applications.

Overview


The SoM-536EM is Based on the Analog Devices Blackfin ADSP-BF536 processor. This embedded processor has an Ethernet MAC built-in along with 3 serial ports. The BF536 combines a 32-bit RISC-like instruction set and dual 16-bit multiply accumulate (MAC) signal processing functionality with the ease-of-use attributes found in general-purpose microcontrollers. This combination of processing attributes enables Blackfin Processors to perform equally well in both signal processing and control processing applications. It is equipped with an MMU and can utilize uClinux Operating System with Real Time extensions.

A SoM (System on Module) is a small embedded module that contains the core of a microprocessor system. Using the same small SoM SODIMM form-factor utilized by other EMAC SoM modules, the SoM-536EM is the ideal processor engine for your next design. All of the Blackfin’s processor core is included on this tiny board including: Flash, Memory, Serial Ports, Ethernet, CAN, PWMs, Timer/Counters, A/D, digital I/O lines, Clock/Calendar, and more.

The SoM-536EM is designed to plug into a carrier board that contains all the connectors and any custom I/O required for the application. This approach allows the customer or EMAC to design a Custom Carrier Board, that meets the customer's I/O, dimensional, and connector requirements without having to worry about the processor, memory, and standard I/O functionality. With this System on Module approach, a semi-custom hardware platform can be developed in as little as a month.

In addition to the option of the developing a Carrier board, one can be purchased off-the-shelf from EMAC. EMAC provides off-the-shelf Carrier boards that feature A/D, D/A, MMC/SD card, keypad, LCD, and Modem interfaces. The off-the-shelf Carrier Board (SoM-100ES) allows the user to immediately start coding their application using the powerful uClinux Operating System and Tools.

The System On Module approach provides the flexibility of a fully customized product at a greatly reduced cost.
