In this month's reader offer, Analog Devices is giving away five Blackfin Low-Power Imaging Platform (BLIP) Development Systems (ADZS-BF707-BLIP2), worth 199 dollars each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win.

Targeting demanding ultra-low-power, real-time applications for image sensing and advanced audio, the development platform leverages the company’s ADSP-BF707BBCZ-4 Blackfin processor as well as ADI’s optimized software libraries for video occupancy sensing.

Measuring 63.5x89mm and drawing under 1W from a 3.2 to 15V supply voltage, the board comes preloaded with an occupancy software module optimized to detect the presence and behaviour of humans or vehicles within indoor and outdoor environments, including for people counting and face detection use cases.

An intuitive configuration GUI enables real-time analysis of captured video, as well as video output/display through an on-board USB port.

Major elements on the board include the ADSP-BF707BBCZ-4 Blackfin processor with more than 1-Mbyte of internal SRAM and LPDDR, Omnivision’s OVM7692 VGA SoC sensor with an integrated lens, 256MB of DRAM and 32MB of Flash, as well as power management ICs.

The USB powered platform comes complete with ICE-1000 and CrossCore Embedded Studio development tools.


And the winners are:


Lucky winners include, Mr R. Ettinger from Switzerland, Mr Z. Gomori from Hungary, Mr G. Mannigel from Germany, Mr P. Rodrigues from Portugal and Mrs Z. Sokalska from Poland.

Let's wish them all some interesting findings.
