Versatile LogicTiles

The ARM® Versatile™ family is now discontinued and only available for a last time buy while stocks last. This range of development boards has been superseded by the Versatile™ Express family.  


Versatile™ LogicTiles can be added to any Versatile family baseboard. A LogicTile adds FPGA expansion space for prototyping or validating custom logic blocks, which can be driven by software running on the adjacent ARM processor. The main system AMBA® bus is brought right into the FPGA for direct connection to the peripheral IP under test. 


There is currently one LogicTile available in the Versatile family - the LT-XC5VLX330. LogicTiles can be stacked to increase FPGA gate count. A general purpose Interface Tile (IT1) is also available for easy IO expansion to other hardware or systems.


  • Ability to store two FPGA images in flash - for instance, one known good test image and one development image
  • 918 available IO pins with FOLD/THRU routing to optimize number of IOs passed up or down the stack
  • Two separate JTAG connections to motherboard allow simultaneous software debug of a soft processor and hardware debug using an ILA
  • PCB delay loops allow alignment of clocks on adjacent tiles
  • Configurable IO voltage on HDRX connector
  • FPGA over-temp LED
  • Support for AES encryption of FPGA image with coin cell for maintaining encryption key
  • General purpose pushbutton, LEDs and DIP switches all wired to FPGA
  • Custom low-profile heatsink and cooling fan
