The PB926EJ-S provides a development system that you can use to develop products around the ARM926EJ-S PXP Development Chip.
You can use the PB926EJ-S as a basic development system with a power supply and a connection to a JTAG interface unit.
You can expand the PB926EJ-S by adding:
ARM RealView Logic Tiles containing custom IP
a PCI expansion enclosure
Dynamic memory expansion board
Static memory expansion board
VGA monitor or CLCD adaptor and CLCD display
MMC, SD, or SIM cards
custom devices to the 32-bit GPIO
USB devices to the three USB ports
serial devices to the synchronous serial port and the four UARTs
keyboard and mouse
audio devices to the onboard CODEC
an Ethernet network to the onboard Ethernet controller.
The basic system provides a good platform for developing code for the ARM7 and ARM9 series of processors. The ARM926EJ-S PXP Development Chip is much faster than a software simulator or a core implemented in RealView Logic Tiles. Code developed for the ARM926EJ-S PXP Development Chip will also run on the ARM10 and ARM11 processor series.
The expanded system with RealView Logic Tiles can be used to develop AMBA-compatible peripherals and to test ASIC designs. The fast processor core and the peripherals present in the ARM926EJ-S PXP Development Chip, PB926EJ-S FPGA, and RealView Logic Tile FPGA enable you to develop and text complex systems operating at, or near, their target operating frequency.
Figure 1.1 shows the layout of the PB926EJ-S.
