C.4.1. Baseboard system support PLD

The system support PLD is located on the baseboard. It provides AHB slave interfaces for the Ethernet and flash, an interrupt controller, and an 8-bit GPIO interface. Figure C.6 shows the internal architecture of the programmed PLD.

The PLD is programmed during board manufacture and is not normally reprogrammed in the field. However, if required for system upgrade, the PLD can be reprogrammed using the Multi-ICE interface. This requires the progcards utility (version 2.30 or later).
