To speed up the hardware and software development time of complex ASIC designs, K-micro introduced FPGA boards for the CatsEye development systems. The FPGA board enables CatsEye developers to readily add logic to CatsEye chips. As a result, developers can fully integrate and test their IP in the CatsEye platform before releasing the design to fabrication. The FPGA Development boards include a Xilinx Virtex-4 XC4VLX200 and a K-micro PCI Express PIPE PHY chip, plus a variety of interfaces.
The CatsEye chip is an advanced SoC that contains a complete CPU subsystem with two MIPS32(R) 24Kf cores, two 10/100/1000 Mbit Ethernet MACs, security processor, memory controllers and host of other peripherals that are required for SoC developments. The FPGA board connects to the CatsEye Development system board via a high speed OCP inter-board connection. By using standard tools, developers can easily add their logic to the FPGA and simulate their complete chip. If more gates are needed, an additional FPGA board can be stacked on top of the first board.
