The low-cost Spartan-6 FPGA LX9 MicroBoard is the perfect solution for designers interested in exploring the MicroBlaze soft processor or Spartan-6 FPGAs in general. The kit comes with several pre-built MicroBlaze “systems” allowing users to start software development just like any standard off-the-shelf microprocessor. The included Embedded Development Kit (EDK) provides both an embedded hardware development tool (Xilinx Platform Studio - XPS) as well as a familiar Eclipse-based environment for writing and debugging code (Software Development Kit - SDK). Experienced FPGA users will find the MicroBoard a valuable tool for general purpose prototyping and testing. The included peripherals and expansion interfaces make the kit ideal for a wide variety of applications. From a system running an RTOS to a Linux-based web server, the Spartan-6 LX9 MicroBoard can help you validate your next design idea.
