The Nexys™3 digital system development platform features Xilinx's newest Spartan-6 FPGA, 48Mbytes of external memory (including two non-volatile phase-change memories from Micron), and enough I/O devices and ports to host a wide variety of digital systems. The Nexys3 is an ideal platform for any engineer to gain experience with Xilinx's latest technologies, and it is perfectly suited to the classroom - new students can build logic circuits without worrying about complex external interfaces, and more advanced students can build complete digital systems, including controllers, CODECs, and embedded processors.
The on-board Adept™ high-speed USB2 port provides board power, FPGA programming, and user-data transfers at rates up to 38Mbytes/sec. A large collection of low-cost peripheral boards, including more than 30 Pmods™ and several new Vmods™, can add additional features to the Nexys3, including A/D and D/A converters, breadboards, motor drivers, displays, etc. The Nexys3 is fully compatible with all Xilinx tools, including the free WebPack™ as well as Chipscope™, EDK™ (embedded processor design kit) and other tools.
The Nexys3 is compatible to the ARM Cortex M0. Students from MIT uses Nexys3 and ARM Cortex M0 to make various projects in the System on Chip contest. Please see the ARM blog for more information. http://j.mp/Awgifa
