Milpitas, Calif.-- LSI Logic Corp.'s newest ZSP processor core module boards are aimed at SoC and platform developers that want to integrate a ZSP500 or ZSP400 based subsystem with any available ARM processor core module. These board-level solutions are said to provide for seamless integration and a rapid prototyping environment for shortened time-to-market for voice, multimedia or wireless applications.
The EB500P_CM board features an entire silicon subsystem implementation of the ZSP500 processor, including memory controller; 512 Kbytes of SRAM; JTAG controller; embedded trace; clock controller; co-processor interfaces; master/slave AMBA AHB bus interface and associated logic.
The EB400P_CM board features a native implementation of the ZSP400 processor with memory controller and processor interfaces accessible in FPGA logic. The boards each contain an FPGA that provides a local AHB bus, a bridge to the global system AHB bus, and board-specific peripherals such as serial ports and LCD drivers. Customers can add their own logic to the FPGA to incorporate their specific functions in RTL coupled with the processors.
The ZSP Core Module boards offer multi-core debug using either Green Hills Multi 2000 or the ARM RealView Developer Suite. These products enable simultaneous debugging of both cores with a common debugger.
The boards can also be used with independent debuggers rather than a single one. JTAG probes from a number of Solution Partners including Green Hills and First Silicon Solutions are also available to communicate with the boards.
The EB400P is is priced at $7500; the EB500P-XCV4 is $9500 while the EB500P-XCV6 goes for $11,500.
