Cobham Gaisler is a world leader in embedded computer systems for harsh environments, with footprints in many parts of the solar system. We provide the full ecosystem to support digital hardware design for mission critical System-on-a-Chip solutions. The IP cores and development tools support processors based on the SPARC and RISC-V architectures. In addition to this, a number of standard components are available.



The LEON processors and GRLIB IP library has support for the space-grade Xilinx Virtex-5QV FPGA. The Virtex-5QV support leverages the GRLIB Xilinx technology support that consists of a techmap layer that wraps specific technology elements such as memory macros and pads. GRLIB also contain template designs for a wide range of Xilinx development boards, including the Xilinx ML510 development board that is considered to be a good commercial option for prototyping V5QV designs. The GRLIB IP library infrastructure automatically builds project files for Xilinx ISE and synthesis tools such as Mentor Precision and Synopsys Synplify. More information about GRLIB and Cobham Gaisler IP cores is available on the SoC library page.

Example designs

The GRLIB IP library bitfiles package prebuilt includes bitstreams for development boards such as Xilinx ML510. The bitstreams can be used together with GRMON3 debug monitor - including the GRMON3 evaluation version.
