Beyond Semiconductor BA22 Block Diagram

Beyond processors are available in Verilog RTL source code. The Beyond BA22 processor is a 4 to 5 stage (configurable) modern RISC design. The Beyond BA22 configured in its smallest configuration is suited for deeply embedded applications replacing 8- and 16-bit processors. Alternately, implementing up-to 4-way caches and 4-way TLBs enable the Beyond BA22 to run modern Linux multimedia applications. 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 BA22 processor is verified and comes with an SDK (software development kit) that includes a compiler, assembler, linker, debugger, software instruction set simulator, and operating system support including Linux and eCos ports. Developers 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.
