Beyond Semiconductor BA12 Block Diagram

Beyond processors are available in Verilog RTL source code. The Beyond BA12 is built around a 5-stage RISC pipeline with predictable execution rate for hard real-time applications. It can be configured with a MMU (memory management unit) and caches, independently for instructions and data. For deeply embedded applications, only on-die embedded memory can be used. The processor supports AMBA AHB and wishbone bus in either little or big endian mode. The debug unit supports hardware breakpoints and real time execution trace buffer.

The Beyond BA12 processor is verified and comes with an SDK (software development kit) that includes compiler, assembler, linker, debugger, software instruction set simulator, and operating system support including Linux and eCos ports. Developers also have access to third-party tools.

Full FPGA development kits are available with a reference SoC featuring chosen Beyond BAxx Processors, controllers and peripherals (DDR2 Controller, 10/100/1000 Ethernet Controller, DVI Display Controller, AC97 Controller, PS/2, UART). The reference SoC demonstration includes running the latest Linux and eCos.
