Japanese Air Traffic Control adopts iWave FPGA
iWave says it was able to complete the mission-critical application design with no cuts or straps in the first prototype itself.
The board design included an eight-layer PCB with the TX4938 Processor from Toshiba, x86 FPGA core from iWave and separate SRAM and FROM interface to x86 core. FPGAs used included the Xilinx Spartan III FPGA for x86 SoC logic and the Xilinx Spartan-3E FPGA for multi-bus and DPRAM control logic while an Altera CPLD EPM570T144C5N was used for address decoding and various peripheral control signal generation. iWave ported customer proprietary iTRON (ELX-iTRON) onto the TX4938 and developed the iTRON drivers, PCI stack and common memory driver.
