2.1. Using the Core Tile with an Interface Module

To set up a Core Tile and IM-LT3 Interface Module as a standalone development system:

  1. Mount the Core Tile on an IM-LT3 Interface Module.


    You can use the IM-LT1 Interface Module instead of the IM-LT3. The IM-LT1, however, does not contain an FPGA so you must mount a Logic Tile between the Core Tile and the IM-LT1.

  2. You can fit one or two memory expansion boards to the Core Tile if you require additional memory.

  3. If you are constructing a multiprocessor system, add additional pairs of Core Tile and Logic Tile.

  4. Connect a JTAG debugger to the Interface Module (see Connecting a JTAG device to an Interface Module).

  5. If required, you can connect an Analyzer Tile between the Logic Tile and the Core Tile to enable monitoring of signals between the tiles.

  6. You can also place a Logic Tile and an Interface Tile on the top of the tile stack. The Logic Tile must be loaded with an appropriate image that contains your peripherals.

    The connectors on the Interface Tile provide access to the peripherals instantiated in the Logic Tile.

  7. Connect the CONFIG link on the Interface Module.

  8. Supply power to the Interface Module, see Supplying power to an Interface Module.

  9. Load the appropriate FPGA image into the IM-LT3 Interface Module, or Logic Tile if using the IM-LT1. See the application note for details on the image to use.

  10. Remove the CONFIG link and use a JTAG debugger to load your application program.
