A CoreTile Express board provides the main system CPU in a Versatile™ Express development system. The CoreTile must be paired with a Motherboard Express uATX board, which provides power, configuration and peripheral connectivity.

CoreTile Express boards differ from their predecessors from the Versatile product family in that high bandwidth peripherals such as the memory and LCD controllers are implemented in the Test Chip, alongside the ARM processor core. This delivers a significant performance boost, which makes the system more suitable for software benchmarking and fully capable of running a desktop OS such as Debian Linux.

ARM Processors supported by the CoreTile Express range are:
