DIL/NetPC DNP/5370: Starter Kit SK28

The DIL/NetPC DNP/5370 starter kit is everything you need to get started with your Analog Devices Blackfin BF537 Linux-based embedded networking or embedded gateway application. The starter kit includes a DNP/5370 module with a pre-installed embedded Linux, the evaluation board DNP/EVA13, power supply, serial interface (nullmodem) cable, one CD-ROM with software and documentation and a printed user manual for the first steps with the starter kit.


The starter kit CD-ROM comes with a full GNU cross tool chain for C/C++ software development. This binary files of the tool chain runs on a x86 Linux-based host (SuSE, Red Hat or other) and builds binary files for the Analog Devices BF537 Blackfin MCU. For using the DIL/NetPC DNP/5370 starter kit you need a development system. The minimal configuration for this system is a Windows-based PC with the HyperTerminal terminal emulation program and a free COM port (COM1 or COM2) for the serial link between the DIL/NetPC DNP/5370 and HyperTerminal. For using the Ethernet link, your PC needs an Ethernet adapter with 10BASE-T or 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX interface. This environment allows web server Java applet programming, Linux shell script and Python programming. For using the GNU C/C++ tool chain, it is necessary to run Linux on the development system.

DIL/NetPC DNP/5370: Starter Kit Key Features

The DIL/NetPC DNP/5370 pre-installed embedded Linux consists of two main components: 1. the Linux kernel and 2. the root filesystem. The DNP/5370 FLASH offers also the U-Boot Boot Loader for downloading new Versions of the Linux kernel and the root file system. This in-system programming feature can be used over a simple RS232 serial and TFTP-based Ethernet LAN link between the development system and the DNP/5370.

The DIL/NetPC DNP/5370 starter kit is also with a pre-installed Python interpreter available (please see ordering information). Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development. It offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools, comes with extensive standard libraries, and can be learned in a few days. Many Python programmers report substantial productivity gains and feel the language encourages the development of higher quality, more maintainable code.
