Kit Enables MicroBlaze-Based Linux Design
Based on the PetaLogix Petalinux and LynuxWork’s BlueCAT Linux distribution and tool chains, the MicroBlaze Processor SpeedWay Design Workshop from Avnet includes the Linux for MicroBlaze Processor DVD, the Xilinx Embedded Development Kit (Spartan-3A DSP MicroBlaze Processor Edition), and attendance at an Avnet Linux for MicroBlaze Processor Workshop. Providing a complete platform for running embedded Linux on a 32-bit MicroBlaze processor implemented in a Spartan-3A DSP FPGA, the kit also highlights the benefits and tradeoffs when using the new Memory Management Unit (MMU) in the MicroBlaze processor. RoHS compliant, the package includes universal power adapters and supports DSP as well as embedded processing development. From $495.
