Microblaze MCS Hardware and Software Tutorial
The Microblaze is a Soft microprocessor core designed for Xilinx FPGAs from Xilinx. As a soft-core processor, MicroBlaze is implemented entirely in the general-purpose memory and logic fabric of Xilinx FPGAs. It is popular and flexible as well as easy to implement as well as to develop software for it.
This tutorial is about the Microcontroller version of Microblaze, the little brother of the processor with the same name. While less flexible, it can perform very well without the hassle of a full fledge processor.
Xilinx provides the Software Development Kit (SDK) to develop software applications, compile and download to the FPGA with the same standard FPGA programming cable.
Operating systems like Linux or the Xilinx-provided Xilkernel are also available to base the software upon, but we will not deal with OSes in this tutorial!
