13 logiCRAFT-CC Demo Block Schematics
PCIe and USB Reference FPGA designs are parts of kit’s deliverables! Xylon has built a demo system to showcase versatility of logiCRAFT-CC platform and Xilinx FPGA designed by Xylon logicBRICKS and Xilinx LogiCORE IP cores. The demo run an abundance of application and system software. The demo uses 3 different FPGA configurations described in further slides.

14 logiCRAFT-CC Demo Hardware
USB PCIe Click To Watch Movie Clip! logiCRAFT-CC plugged into Industrial PC computer logiCRAFT-CC and Beagle Board USB link logiCRAFT-CC and NEC Board Parallel IO link Parallel IO Xylon’s logiCRAFT-CC Companion Chip Platform demo setup which showcases three different ways of interfacing the FPGA with different host microprocessors -> PCI Express, USB and parallel IO interface. The USB serial bus can be also used as the interface between host processors and the FPGA companion chip. This logiCRAFT-CC demo showcases the companion chip working with the OMAP3530 featuring ARM® CortexTM-A8 microprocessor. The USB is being used for transfer of FPGA captured video and audio. The logiCRAFT-CC can interface the most complex embedded microprocessors like the Intel® AtomTM microprocessor. This demo uses integrated Xilinx Spartan-6 PCIe link and Xylon’s logiPCIECTRL IP to seamlessly integrate FPGA peripherals with the host CPU. Besides other interfacing options, the logiCRAFT-CC provides free Xilinx FPGA IO pins that can be used for implementation of different parallel or serial busses. This demo presents the logiCRAFT-CC working as a graphics co-processor to the NEC V850 microprocessor. The FPGA implements the video output as well.

15 PCIe Companion Chip Example
This demo design comes as a part of logiCRAFT-CC deliverables. Users can evaluate it and use as starting point for in-house developments. Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA interfaces an external (host) microprocessor or microcontroller featuring the PCI Express (PCIe) interface. There is no FPGA CPU. The host controls operation of FPGA implemented peripherals through the PCIe, which is also used for bi-directional data transfers. Xylon delivers the logiPCIECTRL IP Core at no cost! This IP core works as the PCIe <> PLB bus bridge. Besides single transfer operations (registers read and write), it also supports fast DMA transfers. Xylon’s logiWIN IP core captures ITU656 video, converts it into YUV and delivers to the host through the PCIe. This FPGA companion chip can also handle stereo audio from Codecs on the board or add-on boards. Other IP peripherals can be added to the FPGA design

16 USB Companion Chip Example
This demo design comes as a part of logiCRAFT-CC deliverables. Users can evaluate it and use as starting point for in-house developments. Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA interfaces an external (host) microprocessor or microcontroller through the USB interface. This link uses an external USB PHY. Xilinx MicroBlaze CPU handles the USB protocol stack, and Xilinx USB2 IP core handles the physical level. This demo FPGA uses external DDR2 memories for application storage Xylon delivers the USB firmware at no cost! The logiSDHC SD card host controller IP core can be used for reading/writing the SD card. There are also other useful IP core, such as the General Purpose IO (GPIO). Xylon’s logiWIN IP captures ITU656 video, converts it into YUV and delivers to the host through PCIe This FPGA companion chip can also handle stereo audio from Codecs on the board or add-on boards.

17 Parallel IO Companion Chip Example
This demo design is not a part of logiCRAFT-CC deliverables Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA interfaces an external NEC V850 CPU which controls all FPGA implemented IP Cores. The interface is Parallel IO through Extension connectors logicBRICKS IPs implement a graphics controller fully controlled by the NEC CPU. The logicBRICKS IPs use external DDR2 memory for video frame buffers The logiWIN Versatile Video Input captures (grabs) the input video, scales it and stores in dedicated video frame buffers in the external DDR2 memory The logiBITBLT Bit Block Transfer 2D Accelerators speeds up graphics operations with multiple graphics objects (menus, drawings, bitmaps, etc.) The logiCVC-ML Compact Multilayer Video Controller controls the LCD display and graphics and video content blended (mixed) within the FPGA Other IP peripherals can be added to the FPGA design
