Getting Started with the Embedded PowerPC processor on a HERON-FPGA that has a Virtex-4 FX Device

HERON-FPGA12 with embedded PowerPC

The HERON-FPGA12 has a  Virtex-4 FX device which consists of an FPGA with a PowerPC 405 processor embedded in it. To run a program on the Power PC processor within the Virtex II Pro you need to use the Xilinx EDK (Embedded Development Kit). The EDK will be your development environment for PowerPC programs. This example  C file provided with this tutorial makes the LEDs on the HERON module flash. The C code uses a pointer to an address where the hardware is expected to have implemented a register from where the LEDs are accessed. This demonstrates how to use the Xilinx EDK and its debug tools.

All I/O modules have options for cables and clocks.  Please see our Cables & Clocks policy for more details.
