ARM CoreTile Express for Cortex-A5

ARM® announces the immediate availability of the CoreTile Express(TM) for Cortex(TM) -A5 development board

(PresseBox) ( Cambridge, UK, )
The CoreTile boards are a part of the Versatile Express(TM) family of development boards, which provide an environment for prototyping the next generation of ARM-based System-on-Chip designs.

The CoreTile Express is a plug-in daughterboard. It works with the Motherboard Express(TM) µATX platform to form an early-access software and hardware development system, for developers using the Cortex-A5 MPCore processor.

Product Benefits

- Proof of concept, demonstrate and de-risk SoC designs in a cost-effective prototyping platform
- Early application and driver software development, interacting with the real application environment
- Validate custom peripheral logic in an adjacent FPGA by coupling the CoreTile Express for Cortex-A5 to an optional LogicTile Express board.
