Eureka Technology Supports PLB Bus Interface for Most of Its Popular IP Cores

Los Altos, California, February 11th, 2010 - Eureka Technology, a leading provider of system connectivity IP cores for SoC and FPGA designs, today announces the availability of the CoreConnect™ PLB™ Bus interface option for most of its IP core products. PLB Bus is the native interface standard for PowerPC and Power Architecture-based embedded processors and the Xilinx MicroBlaze™ CPU. By supporting the PLB™ bus interface standard, Eureka’s IP cores can be integrated seamlessly with any SoC design based on these standard CPU cores.

"Eureka Technology has a large selection of features rich IP cores designed for SoC and FPGA implementations," said Simon Lau, president of Eureka Technology. "Most of our IP cores such as SD/MMC controllers and NAND Flash memory controllers already support a wide selection of bus interfaces including AXI, AHB, APB, Wishbone, Avalon, and SH4 buses. The addition of PLB bus interface enables us to address virtually all our customers’ interface design needs from a single source."

Adding the PLB bus interface option to the wide variety of IP cores offer by Eureka Technology creates endless combinations of bridge applications for its customers. A sample of such designs include PLB to AHB bridge, PLB to PCI bridge, PLB to Wishbone bridge, or PLB SD controller in addition to PLB-based SDRAM controller, DMA and NAND Flash controllers. These IP cores feature PLB slave and PLB master as required. All of these IP cores can be implemented in any SoC and FPGA technology. These cores are available immediately in Verilog, VHDL, and FPGA netlist formats.
