- Digital Core Design, the Intellectual Property (IP) provider, today has announced the release of a new - DoCD kit v2.0 evaluation board.
The DoCD kit v2.0 is a modern evaluation board with DCD on-Chip Debugger system which allows quick and effective testing HDL projects based on DCD IP cores. The Evaluation board bases on Altera's Stratix II (EP2S16) FPGA device. An environment of FPGA chip make among other:
- SRAM ( 1M x 32b ),
- FLASH ( 4M x 32b )
- DDR SDRAM ( 4 x (64M x 8b)) memories,
- I2C interface with implemented RTC ( DS1629 ) and EEPROM ( 24FC515)
- SPI interface with implemented DataFlash ( AT45DBI61BM )
- Two PS/2 sockets,
- Compact Flash socket
- UART (1Mbps),
- 1-Wire interface
- Five clocks with PLLs (software application controlled)
- Voltage, current and temperature measuring.
The evaluation board has also capability to attach an external I/O module to expand digital interfaces with USB 2.0 High Speed, Ethernet 10/100/1000, VGA DAC, CAN and RS 485.
This development board connected with DCD on-chip Debugger system makes powerful tool which makes easy way to implement, testing and debugging DCD microcontrollers into real FPGA device and significantly reduces time of designing phase
