The XK-1 is a low cost development board for exploring event-driven processor designs based on the XS1-L1 device. Multiple XK-1 boards can be linked together in a chain and two I/O expansion areas are provided for connecting additional components to the XK-1. Design files for example add-on boards are available, including an SD card reader, a Bluetooth adapter and a Control Card.

An XTAG-2 debug adapter can be connected to the XK-1 to provide a JTAG interface to the board from a PC. The XK-1 can be powered directly from the XTAG-2 connector or from an external 5V power supply.

Each XK-1 Development Kit includes an XK-1 Development Board and XTAG-2 Debug Adapater.
