Analog Devices has targeted its two newest Blackfin processors — the ADSP-BF539 and the ADSP-BF539F — at CAN and MOST bus connectivity in the automotive industry. The BF539F is said to be the first Blackfin processor to offer Flash memory in a single package. Using Known Good Die (KGD) Flash memory from Spansion, both processors are designed for memory-hungry processing applications that enable audio, video and conversation voice recognition.
