The logiCRAFT-CC-Premier Companion Chip kit includes the popular BeagleBoard-xM open development platform with the ARM® Cortex™-A8 based processor (TI's OMAP™) and the logiCRAFT-CC platform with the programmable Xilinx® Spartan®-6 FPGA companion chip.

The BeagleBoard-xM runs Ubuntu operating system based on Linux distribution. The Xilinx Spartan-6 LX150T device implements several application specific logicBRICKS IP cores which work as peripherals fully integrated with the host processor.
Kit users can use the USB as the interface between the FPGA device and the BeagleBoard's  processor. The provided reference FPGA designs, with evaluation versions of the logicBRICKS IP cores, can be used as bases for in-house developments and can save months of development time. The USB firmware is provided to kit users free of charge. The pre-designed USB interface allow designers to focus on the rest of the system and its differentiating functions.

Xylon provides a full set of Linux drivers for all logicBRICKS IP cores included in the reference FPGA designs, as well as demo software applications for Linux.
