AxiomFount Launches its Integrated .NET Micro Framework Based Solutions for Analog Devices’ Blackfin Processors

January 22, 2009

TORONTO, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ – AxiomFount Inc. today announced the availability of AxiDotNet release 1.0. The AxiDotNet family of solutions enables the use of Microsoft .NET(TM) Micro Framework 3.0 and Visual Studio(R) tools for Analog Devices Blackfin(R) processors by providing seamlessly integrated Blackfin specific and optimized libraries. AxiomFount will deliver AxiDotNet solutions ranging from standard configurable developer packages to full custom solutions.

AxiDotNet release 1.0 provides the worldwide community of application developers the first of numerous integrated .NET Micro Framework based solutions granting easy access to high-performance signal processing on convergent Blackfin processors through use of Microsoft’s widely adopted Visual Studio development tools.

“We are excited about the opportunity to use .NET Micro Framework with Blackfin processors, and are impressed by the capabilities of the AxiomFount team for providing solutions that will enable numerous applications and products,” said Colin Miller, Product Unit Manager for the .NET Micro Framework at Microsoft.

“The Blackfin community is very interested in the capabilities that Microsoft .NET Micro Framework presents. These include tremendous ease of use and the ability to utilize application developers and embedded engineers with no DSP experience to build advanced applications, GUIs and interfaces on Blackfin hardware. AxiomFount’s system integration expertise and in-depth knowledge of Blackfin is the key to making this possible,” said Tony Zarola, Product Line Manager, in the General Purpose DSP group at Analog Devices.

“We are pleased to work with Microsoft and Analog Devices to provide solutions that bring together the benefits of .NET Micro Framework and capabilities of Blackfin processors;” said Massoud Hadjiahmad, Co-founder & CEO of AxiomFount Inc. “We envision great opportunities in making our AxiDotNet solutions available, and remarkably easy to use, for Blackfin-based developers across many applications and markets.”

AxiDotNet solutions combine programming abstractions provided by the .NET Micro Framework with optimized, configurable and customizable Blackfin specific AxiDotNet libraries to jumpstart the development of embedded products, considerably simplifying the task of dealing with embedded peripherals and enabling development of application-rich products in a significantly shorter time.

A time-limited evaluation version of AxiDotNet release 1.0 for Analog Devices ADSP-BF527 EZ-KIT Lite(R) is available for download via AxiomFount’s website (www.axiomfount.com). Blackfin EZ-KIT Lite evaluation kits can be purchased through Analog Devices, online or through a local ADI sales or Distributor office.
