ADAS1000 - Blackfin Framework

Supported Devices

Evaluation Boards


The EVAL-ADAS1000SDZ is a fully featured evaluation kit for the ADAS1000. The evaluation kit consists of an evaluation board kitted with 2 ADAS1000 devices capable of demonstrating ECG capture up to 12 leads. This evaluation board is provided for silicon evaluation purposes and is not designed to be connected directly to animal or human.

This board can be operated in conjunction with the System Development Platform (SDP) or alternatively may be interfaced to directly via a dedicated serial interface connector (J4).

The SDP controller board connects to the PC via USB 2.0. The evaluation board connects to the SDP-B controller board. The ADAS1000 evaluation board cannot be connected directly to the PC. The evaluation software running on the PC will communicate with the evaluation board through the SDP-B Controller board. The SDP Controller board is a separate list item in the ordering guide below (EVAL-SDP-CB1Z). If you have not previously purchased an SDP-B Controller board, please do so to ensure a full evaluation setup.

Framework Functional Description

This project demonstrates a framework developed for Visual DSP Visual DSP to interface the ADAS1000 to the ADSP-BF527 on the SDP-B controller board.

The software has been developed to

  • Configure various registers of ADAS1000 through SPORT1 of ADSP-BF527
  • Read ECG or Test tone data from ADAS1000 to memory of ADSP-BF527 (external SDRAM)
  • Process the data acquired from ADAS1000
  • Display/Plot the processed data


  • VisualDSP5.0 Update 10 * [[adi>ADAS1000]] Eval Board setup, EVAL-ADAS1000SDZ * SDP-B Rev 1.3 (with Emulator to connect to VisualDSP++), [[adi>SDP
