Introducing the Blackfin Handy Board

Fred G. Martin, Andrew Chanler

The Blackfin Handy Board is a new robot controller inspired by the original MIT Handy Board. The Blackfin Handy Board was developed in collaboration with Analog Devices, Inc., and is based on their Blackfin DSP chip, which combines a 16-bit integer DSP engine with a 32-bit RISC CPU. This paper provides an overview of the architecture of the Blackfin Handy Board, including the hardware design and supported software environments, and results from the Fall 2006 semester of use.
