LogicTile Express is a range of plug-in daughterboards for the Motherboard Express (V2M-P1) board. Both are part of the Versatile™ Express family of ARM development boards. LogicTiles can be used for two purposes:
  • For prototyping and validation of custom ASIC IP alongside an ARM processor
  • As the base hardware for a Soft Macro Model (SMM)

There are three types of LogicTile Express board available. All are based on Xilinx FPGAs:

  • LogicTile Express 3MG - single Virtex-5 FPGA
  • LogicTile Express 13MG - dual Virtex-6 FPGAs
  • LogicTile Express 20MG - single Virtex-7 FPGA

For IP prototyping, the developer should choose, based on the amount of FPGA resource and upward IO expansion required. Please click on the tabs below for full product information.
