A Soft Macrocell Model (SMM) is an FPGA version of an Arm processor built on a daughterboard that can be mounted on the V2M-P1 motherboard to form an off-the-shelf development system. It provides a fully functional, tested example of an Arm processor even if no hard silicon is available from a foundry.

Features and Benefits

Cortex-R5 Ready

Take advantage of Soft Macrocell Models of Cortex-R5 to accelerate development for this processor.

Easily Expandable

Complete your system by plugging additional LogicTile Express daughterboards directly into the SMM motherboard.

Memory Included

As no SDRAM is provided on the V2M-P1 motherboard, a SODIMM memory module is generally provided on the SMM.
