Arm Cortex-M Prototyping System 3 (MPS3) board.

Getting Started

The Arm MPS3 FPGA Prototyping Board is an FPGA prototyping platform, which allows designers to design systems easily. The board features a large FPGA to implement complex embedded designs (even including small Cortex-A class cores) and many expansion connectors to plug in other systems. Key benefits of the MPS3 board include:

  • FPGA capacity 5x larger than MPS2+
  • A wide range of connectors and peripherals
  • Prototype Linux applications

Applications

Prototyping of embedded devices, including Cortex-M, and small Cortex-A or Cortex-R.

The MPS3 FPGA Prototyping Board features a SO-DIMM connector and a large amount of memory to store code. This means that you are able to implement small Cortex-A class systems running Linux applications. Many ports (including, but not limited to audio and HDMI) and expansion connectors enable you to develop a wide range of applications.
