Nashua, N.H.--Aug. 25, 1997--A fully functional silicon implementation of a synthesizable core from VAutomation, headquartered here, is available now.
VAutomation's V186-ES1 Evaluation Silicon allows designers of ASICs to easily evaluate and verify its Intel 80186-compatible core, known as V186, and to quickly prototype their designs containing the core.
The V186 core is a predesigned and verified synthesizable core that is compatible with the Intel 80186 microprocessor. Available in both VHDL and Verilog source code and compatible with the Synopsys synthesis environment, the V186 allows an Intel 81086-compatible microprocessor to be implemented within an ASIC for true system-on-chip integration.
The V186-ES1 Evaluation Silicon, implemented in .5-m CMOS technology, is available now and is priced at $100. It is packaged as an 80-pin tape quad flat pack (TQFP) and provides a maximum clock speed of 23.8 MHz.
