   eXplorer for Cortex-A9

Platform Baseboard eXplorer for Cortex-A9

    The ARM® RealView® family of feature-rich development boards provides an excellent environment for prototyping system-on-chip designs. Through a range of plug-in options, hardware and software applications can be developed and debugged.

    The high performance Versatile family enhances the end-user experience for benchmarking and application development. It simplifies hardware and software development, which shortens time to market.

    The Platform Baseboard eXplorer for Cortex™-A9 is a development board especially designed for ARMv7 architecture applications development, Cortex-A9 processor evaluation, benchmarking, Operating System porting and custom peripheral driver development.

Platform Baseboard eXplorer for Cortex-A9

    The Platform Baseboard eXplorer for Cortex-A9 features a dual core Cortex-A9 Test Chip with Vector Floating Point and NEON technology an integrated Level 1 and level 2 cache and local DDR2 memory. A structured ASIC handles the high performance peripherals (DDR DMC, NOR SMC, PCI, LCD, AXI bus matrix), a companion Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA handles the standard I/O peripherals.

    The Cortex-A9 Test Chip and the structured ASIC are connected via a non multiplexed 64bit AXI bus to give the highest possible data transfer between the two chips. The platform performance allows software development. The Tile Site and PCI (PCI, PCI Express) interfaces are available to add custom peripherals for modelling your final product.

    To accelerate software development and reduce time to market the Platform Baseboard is delivered with example software and an example AXI implementation for Logic Tiles. A number of operating systems, including Linux will also be ported to this board.
