The NOEL-V processor and the GRLIB IP library has support for Xilinx Artix-7 devices. This support consists of a techmap layer that wraps specific technology elements such as memory macros and pads. GRLIB also contains a template designs for developments boards such as the Arty A7: Artix-7 FPGA Development Board (A7-100T version) and infrastructure that automatically builds project files for Xilinx Vivado and synthesis tools such as Mentor Precision Hi-Rel and Synopsys Synplify Premier. More information about GRLIB and Cobham Gaisler IP cores is available on the SoC library page.
Cobham Gaisler provides prebuilt bitstreams of the Arty A7: Artix-7 FPGA Development Board NOEL-V template design. These bitstreams are intended for evaluation of software running on a NOEL-V SoC. To evaluate these designs, the following items are required:
The example design range is called NOEL-ARTYA7-EX:
