Analog Devices launched the CrossCore Embedded Studio (CCES) software development platform for their Blackfin and SHARC processors. CCES offers Blackfin and SHARC developers a C/C++ and assembly editing environment with plug-in support for drivers and services including Ethernet, USB, algorithmic software modules, operating system, and file system. CCES provides easy to use, integrated multicore development and debug features. CCES licenses are available at several levels. A single-user node locked license is priced at $995.
Analog Devices announced a video primitives library for use in real time video analytics applications. The free software modules are optimized for the Blackfin processor family and include image processing task level primitives to enable faster development cycles for video analytics applications. The software modules are available in object code or a C source wrapper. They provide advanced video design functionality such as video filtering, transforms, color operations and utilities suitable for a wide range of applications, including video surveillance, automotive vision systems and industrial vision.
