Microblaze and Picoblaze

Started by Unknown February 8, 2005
Hi Everybody,
I wonder some thing about microblaze and picoblaze.
*I must buy some tools for use microblaze or picoblaze? I think I must
buy Xilinx EDK for microblaze.
*EDK includes C/C++ compiler? or any?
*There are advantages at Debugging?
*If I use microblaze, FPGA'll be only processor? or I can write built
in USB, ethernet etc.?
*If I use Microblaze I must use only Virtex or Spartan 3?

thanks in advance

yes EDK includes microblaze license + many free ip cores... picoblaze is free but requires registration at xilinx web pacoblaze is open source picoblaze compatible core

EDK includes many things, also C compiler. the C compiler is GPL licensed so you can have it for free too

EDK includes debug support

you can build in whatever you want.

xilinx microblaze can be used on s2 s3 and any virtex the open source microblaze (aeMB from opencores) can be used with any FPGA
