Beyond Raptor Subsystem

Beyond Raptor Platform includes FPGA/ASIC SoC design based on a 32-bit Embedded Processor Core (Beyond BA2x Processor Core or BA12) that allows customers to take it as a base design and modify it into their own FPGA/ASIC SoC. Beyond Raptor Platform is delivered as a set consisting of a pre-configured FPGA development board, software development tools for selected processor core, Linux source code, and documentation.
