Chapter 1 Introduction
The Cortex®‑M1 DesignStart™ FPGA-Xilinx edition package provides an easy way to use the Cortex‑M1 processor in the Xilinx Vivado design environment. The Cortex‑M1 processor is intended for deeply embedded applications that require a small processor to be integrated into an FPGA. The processor implements the Armv6‑M architecture and is closely related to the Cortex‑M0 and Cortex‑M0+ processors that are intended for ASIC implementation.
This chapter describes the Cortex‑M1 DesignStart FPGA-Xilinx edition features and directory structure.
