The Northbridge is a structured ASIC and provides the major system controllers and interfaces, and interfaces to the onboard Cortex-A8 test chip. This enables the PB-A8 to operate as a standalone development system for Cortex-A8 based applications.

The Northbridge also interfaces to the tile site. This enables the PB-A8 to operate as a standalone AMBA 3 AXI peripheral development system using an attached Logic Tile. See Northbridge for details.
