The MIPS SEAD -3

The MIPS SEAD -3 System engineering and development board is designed to provide a low-cost means to support various CPU cores allowing the user to evaluate the cores in an FPGA environment.

SEAD-3 also provides a user the ability to utilize the on board Xilinx FPGA for their own custom programming when a MIPS® FM-3 module is added to house the CPU core. When the FM-3 is added the user can then additionally stack on a MIPS® FPGA 5b board that can house up to two additional Xilinx XC5VLX330s providing extra design capacity.
