System Design Board SDB-750/1000

System-on-Chip from Spec to Silicon
System Design Board SDB-750/1000
Features
Product Description
Inicore's System Design Board SDB-1000 provides a versatile
platform for your next development. An ARM based CPU
subsystem with 2 MBytes of SRAM and 16 MBytes of program
memory (FLASH) allows to operate the board in a standalone
mode. It is complemented with an up to one million gate
ProASICPLUS FPGA from Actel.
The SDB-1000 can be used in a wide range of applications.
Thanks to the two CANbus channels it nicely targets the industrial
control sector. The PMC port with the PTMC extension opens the
door to the telecom sector. Additional interfaces can be added
using Compact Flash interface, the CPU bus extension or the
prototyping area.

Interfaces and Hardware Support
The SDB-1000 is designed to support
real System-on-Chip applications. The
external CPU can be disabled and
replaced with a controller residing
inside the ProASICPLUS device.
All external resources such as SRAM
and FLASH memory are available to
the internal CPU.
As shown in the system block diagram,
a wide range of interfaces
are
available.
Software Support
The SDB-1000 runs the eCos
operating system from RedHat. Ample
of system resources such as 2 Mbyte
SRAM and 16 Mbyte FLASH memory
are available for the application
program. Software design is supported
with the GCC tool suite running on
Linux and Windows platforms. The
JTAG in-circuit emulator (ICE) interface eases system debugging. Also, a
serial port can be used to interface to a
GDB running on a host computer.
To ease software development, a
monitor application is provided using
the LCD display, the keyboards and
LEDs as the user interface.
In-System Programming
The SDB-1000 takes advantage of
the unique features of the
ProASICPLUS devices. It provides full
support to reprogram the Flash
based FPGA from the CPU. All
required infrastructures such as
DC/DC converters to create the
programming voltages are available
on the board. The Compact Flash
interface can be used to transfer
new programming files from the PC
to the system. This accelerates
system development and enables
system upgrades in the field.
The ProASICPLUS can be programmed through a standard JTAG
header using Silicon Sculptor II or
Flash Pro or from the on-board ARM
micro-controller.
