The logiHAC is a multiprocessor system that combines the low-cost Microchip PIC18F2680 MCU and the Xilinx FPGA working as MCU coprocessor. The FPGA implements Xylon logicBRICKS IP cores controlling system's graphics and stepper motors. The Xilinx MicroBlazeTM CPU communicates with the MCU through the serial SPI bus, interprets MCU commands and controls logicBRICKS IP cores. This platform illustrates benefits of FPGA deployment in cluster designs: fast development cycles that save legacy software and hardware, very competitive costs in comparison to ASSPs, FPGA boosted system's flexibility and configurability. The logiHAC comes preloaded with demo applications and includes an FPGA reference design based on Xilinx MicroBlaze and Xylon logicBRICKS. Xylon evaluation IP cores are functionally equal to fully-licensed products and enable parametrization through the EDK GUI, simulation, and a full hardware implementation.
