The D68000 soft core is binary-compatible with the industry standard 68000 32-bit microcoprocessor. It has a 16-bit data bus and a 24-bit address data bus. Of course, its code is compatible with the MC68008, upward code compatible with MC68010 virtual extensions and the MC68020 32-bit implementation of the architecture. Our efficient IP Core has an improved instructions set, which allows to execute the program with higher performance, than a standard 68000 core.
The D68000 is delivered with fully automated test-bench and complete set of tests, which allow easy package validation at each stage of SoC design flow.
A special testing platform has been built to run D68000 with uCLinux Operating System
Each core has been tested in variety of FPGA and ASIC technologies. Its implementation results are summarized below.
