Could I add that ADI chips may be are cheap, but the implementation for
that could be ugly.
I don't think this is a fair - this is a common issue with any silicon
supplier in recent times. For things like you mentioned - modems - end
consumers don't care how ugly the implementation is - as long as it (a)
works in their environment (b) is cheap.
Ugly to one person is design tradeoffs to another - you just don't agree
with the tradeoffs someone else did. (And you might be right - I don't work
on USB modems)
I know there are different teams at Analog device and blackfin guys aren't
related to these projects.
Yes that is correct - ADI is a big place, and there are many different
groups here. The open source development group is small (but growing), and
we all are trying to do the right things - all of our documentation is
posted on our web site - or cvs. If you ask a question - ask on our forums
- it will get answered.
I hope backfin project will change my vision of ADI ;)
I hope it can as well. If you have any thoughts on how we can interact with
people better - let me know.
