CoreMP7 development kit board

Actel Corp. announced the availability of the CoreMP7 development kit used for the implementation of the company's CoreMP7 soft ARM7 processor core. The product aims to assist users in evaluating and designing FPGA-based SoC applications. The kit includes the CoreMP7, the Actel ARM7-enabled M7 ProASIC3 device and FPGA development tools.

The kit includes a standalone development board and the CoreConsole IP Deployment Platform (IDP), the Libero Gold Integrated Design Environment (IDE), GNU software tools and a CoreMP7 debugger. In addition, a FlashPro3 programmer is optionally available to provide programming and debug support for both the FPGA fabric and the ARM7 software.

The CoreConsole IDP and the Libero IDE is used in assembling, simulating, synthesizing, laying out, programming, and debugging a CoreMP7-based system. The CoreConsole IDP outputs a memory map and drivers that can be utilized with the GNU software tools.

The board is available with either an M7A3PE600 or M7A3P1000 device in an FG484 package, providing FPGA real estate for design implementation. It also includes: Ethernet, RS232, USB and CAN interface connectors; PHY interfaces; up to 150 user-defined I/Os for easy connection to other systems and components in an application; and 2M SRAM and 2M flash memory.

The CoreMP7 development kit is priced at $695, and is available now. The kit with the FlashPro3 programmer is priced at $795.
