Delivering unrivaled levels of system performance, flexibility, scalability, and integration to developers, Xilinx’s architecture for a new Extensible Processing Platform is optimized for system power, cost, and size. Based on ARM’s dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore processors and Xilinx’s 28 nm programmable logic, the Extensible Processing Platform takes a processor-centric approach by defining a comprehensive processor system implemented with standard design methods. This approach provides Software Developers a familiar programming environment within an optimized, full featured, powerful, yet low-cost, low-power processing platform.
