Beyond BA Evaluation Kit [FPBxxzzz]

Beyond Raptor Platform includes FPGA/ASIC SoC design based on a 32-bit Processor Core (Beyond BA12, BA21, or BA22 Processor) that allows customers to take it as a base design and modify it into their own FPGA/ASIC SoC. Beyond Raptor Subsystem is delivered as a set of preinitialized FPGA development board, software development tools for the Beyond BA12, BA21, or BA22 Processor, Linux source code, and documentation.
