Aldec adds ARM Cortex-A9 support to HES-7
Aldec, Inc. has added ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore application development and verification in its HES-7 ASIC prototyping platform.
HES-7 makes use of the Xilinx Virtex-7 2000T and Zynq-7000 and all programmable SoCs include peripherals supporting media interfaces, memories and additional connectors to expand the development of a wide array of SoC applications.
The HES-7 ASIC prototyping platform, coupled with open-source Linux, Android and FreeRTOS solutions available from Xilinx, provides software developers of ARM Cortex-A9 applications with a complete SoC platform.
Making use of the 4 to 96 million ASIC gate scalable capacity of HES-7 developers can now leverage the serial processing capabilities of the Cortex-A9 processor for applications that require intensive computations and operating systems with the parallel processing capabilities of HES-7 ASIC prototyping platform such as video, Communications, Control Systems and Bridging.
