Accelerate your System Design
A FPGA based development platform as part of an EDK is available to target
intilop provided IPs or other standard IPs. The platform with Virtex-4 FX12
Evaluation Kit provides a complete hardware environment for designers to accelerate
their time to market. The EDK provides a stable platform to develop and test
designs targeted to Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGA family. With up to 200,000 logic cells,
up to 500 MHz performance, and unrivaled system features, the EDK with a FPGA
device provides a fast path to integrate and test various blocks and their functionality
and performance. A ready to use platform offers clear cut advantage for validating
the system concept very quickly. The current-generation FPGAs, offer a compelling
cost-effective alternative to SOCs, ASICs and ASSPs. Demonstration code is included
with the kit for a quick start to device familiarization.
The Intilop ipac platform is FPGA based configurable SoC platform that contains all the peripheral
functions required for a basic SoC with options to select from a suite of library components that has
been ported to this platform. This platform currently supports PPC 405. It can also support MIPS4K
series, ARC, ARM7TDMI, and ARM9TDMI embedded processor cores. The high performance ipac
architecture could be tailored allowing other processors to be easily integrated. The platform also can
be used as a companion chip for high performance standalone processors.
The ipac SoC peripherals, including a system timer, a watchdog timer, an interrupt controller,
programmable I/O, an alphanumeric LCD interface, I2C Host, SPI master, 16550 and 16450 UARTs,
real-time clock and a high-bandwidth memory controller which supports Flash, SRAM, SDRAM or
DDR depending on the user's requirements. The user also has the option to select from a library of
cores and subsystems that have been pre-integrated and verified to work in this platform, including
an IDE Host, Gigabit Ethernet MAC, 10/100 Ethernet MAC, USB 1.1, USB 2.0, PCI, and PCMCIA Host.
Other custom cores and subsystems can be easily integrated into this platform, such as MPEG decoders,
Gigabit Ethernet MACs, and 802.11a, 802.11b or 802.16 wireless MACs.
All firmware and driver modules running on Linux. Many applications can be supported by this configurable
platform including Network Security Processors, Home Gateways, Network routers, Set-top boxes,
Storage Area Network controllers, Network Attached Storage devices, and Access Point controllers for
802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.16.
