Sun Microsystems Inc. and Xilinx Inc. have announced the availability of a feature-rich, high-performance programmable OpenSPARC evaluation platform. According to the companies, the platform provides academic researchers and hardware developers with a flexible OpenSPARC-based platform to create, customise and deploy next-generation applications for a broad set of end markets including supercomputers, industrial, scientific and medical (ISM), aerospace and defence, and storage and networking.

Based on the power of an open-sourced 32-thread UltraSPARC T1 processor and combined with the Xilinx 65nm Virtex-5 FPGA technology, the platform will provide a foundation for innovation across a range of disciplines including; computer architecture, logic design, compiler techniques and parallel programming. Based on its programmable architecture, the platform allows multiple design iterations providing faster time- to- market, greater flexibility and reduced complexity.

The Sun and Xilinx-based OpenSPARC FPGA development platform is immediately available through Digilent. Visit to order.
