The UltraSPARC T1 and UltraSPARC T2 are the first CMT processors designed by Sun Microsystems and these processors have been open-sourced and you can download them from OpenSPARC.net.

The UltraSPARC T2 Plus is the latest CMT processor and the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5140 and T5240 are the first systems to use this processor. The UltraSPARC T2 Plus is essentially an UltraSPARC T2 but includes multi-chip coherence links which allows systems to be built that use 2 or 4 of these processors together in one system.

You can read about the details of the UltraSPARC T2 Plus codenamed Victoria Falls made during a presentation at the HOT CHIPS 19 which was held on August 20-21, 2007, Stanford, CA. Victoria Falls - Scaling Highly Threaded Processor Cores

OpenSPARC T1 Version 1.5 Released

This release makes it much easier for people to have an OpenSPARC T1 core on within a system. It's very cool stuff.

Within this release for the first time, there is support for an OpenSPARC T1 FPGA system with UART and DRAM controllers. It also supports the entire Xilinx tool chain for building new FPGA systems using OpenSPARC T1.

On this platform, you can map single thread T1, add right peripherals and then boot Hypervisor. You can also run standalone C program without the OS. Complete documentation and an entire new verification environment are also included as part of this release.

These new features are designed to enable a user to build real systems using the OpenSPARC T1 core. For further details on Xilinx, please refer to the Xilinx University program and information on the ml410 board.

Watch the video demonstration below and Download it!
