Does Xilinx provide ARM Cortex IP for Kintex/Virtex

Jump to solution

Hi,

Does Xilinx provides any FPGA optimized and/or friendly versions of ARM cores for the FPGA implementation.
I found some information at below link but not sure how to use it. It does show CM1, CM3 in the image on slide 15.

https://www.xilinx.com/publications/events/developer-forum/2018-frankfurt/bringing-the-benefits-of-cortex-m-processors-to-fpga.pdf

Would like to know which cores are provided and what is the max synthesis frequency for these cores.

Or, is it specific to zynq family as shown on the below link.

@Shikhar,

Did you go through the link you have posted?

If yes, then you should have found the link below...

https://www.arm.com/resources/designstart/designstart-fpga

which says "Cortex-M1 and Cortex-M3 soft CPU IP for use on FPGA designs for prototypes and commercial deployments."

 

Would like to know which cores are provided and what is the max synthesis frequency for these cores.

Find out and read the data sheets....all such infos should be there!

Xilinx doesn't (even for Zynq*), but I think ARM does - see here:

 

https://www.arm.com/resources/designstart/designstart-fpga

 

(*) Zynq isn't an ARM IP core, it's a full ARM Cortex-A series application processor that's permanently implemented on the chip (ie it's not in the programmable logic). In fact, the Zynq chips would be more accurately described as ARM processors with an FPGA connected to them, rather than FPGAs with embedded processors.
