PetaLinux SDK v1.3 released

PetaLogix today announced the immediate availability of PetaLinux SDK1.3, now including PowerPC440 support, and support for the MicroBlaze AXI-4 architecture

Since its release in 2009, PetaLinux SDK has quickly established itself as the industry-standard development environment for Embedded Linux on Xilinx FPGAs.

With users across the aerospace, biomedical, consumer and industrial electronics sectors, PetaLinux SDK allows developers to leverage the flexibility and performance of a Xilinx FPGA processor platform, with the broad and deep software platform support of Embedded Linux.

With the availability of version 1.3, PetaLinux SDK now supports an even broader range of systems. Major features of this release include

PowerPC440 support in Xilinx Virtex-5 FXT FPGA families.
MicroBlaze AXI-4 beta support, for users transitioning to new MicroBlaze/AXI and Xilinx Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) architectures
New tools and runtime support for firmware upgrade – don’t spend time developing this capability, just use it out of the box instead.
Xilinx 12.3 tool support
