RD-N2 platform user guide
.. contents::
RD (Reference Design) is a collection of resources to provide a representative
view of typical compute subsystems that can be designed and implemented using
specific generations of Arm IP.
RD-N2 in particular is based on the following ARM IP's:
- 32xMP1 Neoverse N2 CPUs
- CMN-700 interconnect
- Multiple AXI expansion ports for I/O Coherent PCIe, Ethernet, offload
- Arm Cortex-M7 for System Control Processor (SCP) and
Manageability Control Processor (MCP)
The Fixed Virtual Platform of RD-N2 config supports 16xMP1 Neoverse N2 CPUs.
