The BCM91250A is an evaluation board for the SiByteTM
dual-processor SOC (System On a Chip) and is implemented in the
standard ATX form factor. The board uses all the interfaces of the
BCM1250. To provide examples for both hardware and software
designers, configurable interfaces are used in all their modes wherever
The board comes complete with an ATX 2.0 compliant case and power
supply. Common off-the-shelf peripherals can be added, such as PCI
graphics adapters, USB keyboards and mice, and ATA hard disks. In
addition, the board has provisions for a few specialized applications
including PCMCIA and HyperTransport
TM (HT) peripherals.
Operating System Support
Two operating systems are provided for the BCM91250A.
? VxWorks? version 5.4 with 64-bit support for data. VxMPTM, a
VxWorks? kernel running independently on each core, is an available
option. Users will need to use the Tornado? tools version 2.1 for 64-
bit or VxMPTM support. The BSP for the SWARM board is supported
by Wind River Systems.
? Linux? version 2.4 running in 32-bit or 64-bit mode with full SMP
support. Full source code is available.
Device drivers are provided as examples of how the many modes of the
BCM1250 interfaces are used.
