Tabula to run the Freescale ColdFire V1 32-bit CPU core
May 20, 2010 // Julien Happich
Tabula announced the selection of the Freescale ColdFire V1 32-bit CPU core from IPextreme for the recently announced ABAX 3PLD product family. The ColdFire CPU provides ABAX 3PLD developers a vast ecosystem of development tools and design resources and is particularly well suited for Tabula's target applications including communications infrastructure, industrial, medical, test, and military/aerospace.
In addition to ColdFire, Tabula also announced support for high-performance DDR3/2 Memory Controller Cores and PCI Express Cores from Northwest Logic as well as Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet MACs from MorethanIP.
ABAX 3PLD developers now have access to proven CPU, high speed connectivity, and memory controller IP that will help them get to market quickly and capitalize on ABAX's ability to deliver unprecedented capabilities at volume price points. Tabula is currently building on this initial set of IP and looks forward to rolling out additional proven IP cores for ABAX developers.
The ABAX family of 3PLDs uses Tabula's revolutionary Spacetime hardware architecture that dynamically reconfigures logic, memory, and interconnects at multi-GHz rates and the Spacetime compiler that manages this ultra-rapid reconfiguration transparently.
Deployed on TSMC's 40 nm process, Tabula's ABAX devices integrate 5.5Mbytes of 1.6GHz user memory in addition to a rich mixture of fully configurable, high-performance I/Os, including 920 general-purpose parallel I/Os, and 48 6.5Gbps serial transceivers.
To improve time to market and productivity, the ABAX family's design flow closely resembles those for FPGAs and ASICs, using synthesis, placement, and routing to compile designs from RTL into silicon. In addition, the ABAX family supports a variety of proven CPU, high speed connectivity and memory controller IP including the Freescale ColdFire V1 32-bit CPU, DDR2 and DDR3 memory controllers, PCI Express, and Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet cores.
