Cirrus Logic "Maverik" Development System

Cirrus Logic created the 7500FE system-on-chip for the A7000+ and sold a great number of these chips too Bush for use in their set-top boxes. Fllowing this success, they started development on an ARM9-based successor, codenamed "maverik". Development of the new chip was troubled, with numerous steppings and complete revisions required. The eventual product (the EP9312) was years late to market and this resulted in several changes in management at Cirrus Logic.

This system is the sixth edition of the silicon (there were at least three subsequent ones) and we believe it to be the only complete one remaining.

Manufacturer: Cirrus Logic
