Unicoi also provides a QuickStart Platform for ADI’s Blackfin Processor, which integrates the Fusion RTOS and TCP/IP stack on the Momentum Data Systems Eagle-35 board allowing product developers to bring their embedded products to market quickly and easily.

“Featuring twice the performance and half the power consumption of any other processor in its class, Analog Devices’ new Blackfin family was designed from the ground-up to provide high-performance, low-power and cost-efficient embedded processing for next-generation video- and audio-intensive applications,” said Jerry McGuire, general manager, media platform and services group, Analog Devices. “Unicoi’s Fusion RTOS implemented on ADI’s Blackfin processors offers a powerful combination for developers of networking and multimedia applications. The protocols and services provided by the Fusion suite allow embedded system developers to experience the versatility and advanced functionality of the new Blackfin processors, and will help them realize that these devices are much more than traditional DSPs, given their ability to effectively handle both complex signal processing and system control functions.”
