Integrator Compact Platform

The Real View� Integrator(TM) Compact Platform operates in conjunction with a Core Module to provide a fully integrated development platform. The Core Module FPGA implements a set of ARM Prime Cell � Peripherals and memory controllers. The Prime Cell Peripherals make use of the drivers and connectors on the Compact Platform baseboard; these include LCD and touch screen connectors, VGA connector, Multi-Media Card (MMC) interface and an audio codec interface. Ethernet connectivity is provided by a dedicated interface chip. Expansion to Logic Modules and Logic Tiles is through an AMBA AHB-Lite system bus.

The Integrator/CP can be extended to support user created IP, using standard Integrator Logic Tiles, in conjunction with an IM-LT1 Interface, or using Logic Modules.

Integrator/CP is compatible with the following Integrator Core Modules: ARM920T, ARM922T-XA10, ARM926EJ-S, ARM946E-S and ARM966E-S, ARM1026EJ-S and ARM1136J(F)-S. See the following link ([1]) for a more complete description of the board and processors supported.

Boot Loader

U-Boot ([2]) contains support for this board. To compile U-Boot from CVS sources you can use the following commands:

  • make integratorcp_config
  • make

The resulting executable can then be loaded on the board using a debugger to be run from the bootMonitor. The following page ([3]) contains some information on compiling and running Linux for this board.
