The Protium platform also provides automated memory compilation, external bulk memory
support, and RTL name preservation throughout the flow, which minimizes the tedious and error-prone manual FPGA bring-up steps, thereby speeding up time to market.
32 MBytes of SDRAM is available for use as Persistent Memory in storing processor state information, and up to 16 GBytes of eUSB Flash Disk for bulk memory
storage is optionally available.
The HomeBASE AR902 ADSL2+ Ethernet network processor integrates the DMT engine with a 200 MHz ARM922 processor, a hardware-based ATM SAR, a USB port and a SDRAM controller that provides the network processor with access to high-bandwidth, high-capacity bulk memory
Designers can use their existing bulk memory
, analog, power, or RF circuit blocks, and associated design libraries.
