Introducing dspblok™ DSP Function Modules

Want the power of DSP without the design and manufacturing burden?

Danville Signal's dspblok family of products combine an Analog Devices SHARC DSP with the supporting circuits necessary to implement a powerful DSP Function Module. Connections are brought out to standard 2mm dual row headers.

The dspblok™ gives you all the high performance, features, and peripheral support you want from the SHARC without the need for a full custom design. And its compact size makes it a perfect fit for your embedded application.

The dspblok™ also substantially reduces development costs, risk and time. By taking advantage of the pretested signal processing module, pc board layouts become simpler and projects are completed quickly and cost effectively.

dspblok™ zx2 DSP Core

The dspblok™ zx2 core is a highly integrated DSP module that incorporates an Analog Devices’ ADSP-21368 or ADSP-21369 SHARC DSP operating at 400 MHz, flash, EEProm AND SDRAM memory and a switching power supply to support the core voltage requirements. All the connections are brought out to standard 2mm dual row header footprints. The board is only 60mm x 60mm (2.36" x 2.36").

The dspblok zx2 is the foundation of our dspstak zx2 DSP Engine. You can use a dspstak zx2 with ICE as a development and programming platform for the dspblok zx2. Code can be uploaded via RS-232 to the dspblok's boot flash memory. JTAG emulator connections are also available.

Legacy Products

Legacy Products

We continue to provide customer support for our earlier dspblok and dspstak boards, If you are developing a new design, we suggest migrating to our most newer dspblok DSP modules. These are based the fourth generation Analog Devices ADSP-214xx family of SHARC DSPs. 

Our Legacy boards are still available as special order only.  Generally, we need to procure some of the parts and set up our manufacturing line so minimum quantities of 25 generally apply. Please contact us if you have a need for one of these earlier products. If you do not see your product listed, contact us and we still may be able to help. Danville is over 20 years old so not everything will always be available, but we try.

The entire set of Legacy Product User Manuals and Datasheets and other supporting material can be found under Legacy Product Support.

dspblok 21489 + Ethernet -- Analog Devices ADSP-21489 SHARC DSP Module

The dspblok™ 21489 + Ethernet is a highly integrated DSP module that incorporates an Analog Devices’ ADSP-21489 SHARC DSP operating at 400 MHz, flash, EEProm and a switching power supply to support the core voltage requirements. All the connections are brought out to standard 2mm dual row header footprints. The board is only 60mm x 60mm (2.36" x 2.36").

The dspblok 21489+Ethernet includes a Wiznet W5100 Ethernet transceiver operating at 100Mb/s. Each module has a unique MAC address preassigned. The transceiver manages the TCP/IP stack so that the DSP is largely unburdened. You just add magnetics and a connector. Since the magnetics are external, you can also create Power over Ethernet (POE) targets for smart sensor applications.

The dspblok 21489+Ethernet also includes a high speed USB transceiver. You can use the USB to upload DSP code via Danville's dspBootloader™.

The dspblok 21489+Ethernet is a specialized version of our fourth generation SHARC based products. It is a superset of the dspblok 21489.Development couldn't be easier.

dspblok 21479u8a USB Audio Class 2 SHARC DSP Module

The dspblok™ 21479u8a combines a powerful floating point DSP with a dedicated USB Audio Class 2 coprocessor.

An Analog Devices ADSP-21479 SHARC DSP operating at 250 MHz and an XMOS XS1-U8A providing the USB audio support are the heart of the module.

The module includes flash, EEProm, and switching power supplies to support the core voltage requirements. All the connections are brought out to standard 2mm dual row header footprints. The board is only 60mm x 60mm (2.36" x 2.36").

USB Audio Class 2 is supported by Danville supplied Microsoft Windows drivers along with native support in Apple and Linux operating systems. In addition to the USB Audio Class 2 support, Danville has enhanced the USB firmware to include HID endpoints for control. This allows DSP code to be uploaded without a programmer or ICE as well as support for graphical design programs like DSP Concepts Audio Weaver.

The dspblok 21479u8a is particularly well suited for low power applications. The USB port can operate independently to support USB bus powered enumeration requirements.

The dspblok 21479u8a is the low power version of our fourth generation SHARC based Audio dspbloks. It is compatible with other fourth generation dspbloks engines such as our dspblok 21489uac2 and dspblok 21469uac2. These dspbloks are recommended for self powered applications since they have more computation power at the cost of higher power consumption.

Development couldn't be easier. The dspblok 21479u8a is supported by Analog Devices’ Visual DSP++ or CrossCore Embedded Studio. You can connect to an Analog Devices ICE-1000 or ICE-2000 via JTAG. Our dspblok dev board is a convenient way to get started with breakouts interfacing to your own external circuits.

Alternatively, the dspblok 21479u8a is available as a sub-component in other Danville products such as the dspMusik 2/8. In this system, the dspblok is graphically programmed via DSP Concepts Audio Weaver.

dspblok 21489uac2 USB Audio Class 2 DSP Module

The dspblok™ 21489uac2 combines a powerful floating point DSP with a dedicated USB Audio Class 2 coprocessor.

An Analog Devices ADSP-21489 SHARC DSP operating at 400 MHz and an XMOS XU208 providing the USB audio support are the heart of the module.

The module includes flash, EEProm, and switching power supplies to support the core voltage requirements. All the connections are brought out to standard 2mm dual row header footprints. The board is only 60mm x 60mm (2.36" x 2.36").

This allows DSP code to be uploaded without a programmer or ICE as well as support for graphical design programs like DSP Concepts Audio Weaver.

The dspblok 21489uac2 is a powerful version of our fourth generation SHARC based Audio dspbloks. Since the dspblok 21489uac2 does not include external SDRAM, it is the best choice for applications where large FIRs, long delay lines or large FFTs are not needed. These applications are better served with our pin compatible, dspblok 21469uac2. 

Development couldn't be easier. The dspblok 21489uac2 is supported by Analog Devices’ Visual DSP++ or CrossCore Embedded Studio. You can connect to an Analog Devices ICE-1000 or ICE-2000 via JTAG. Our dspblok dev board is a convenient way to get started with breakouts interfacing to your own external circuits.
