S2C Prodigy Player Pro新套件提升FPGA原型与调试的效率

解决方案进一步扩展,支持Prodigy A10 Logic Module


美国加州圣何塞 – 2017年5月30日 -
 S2C公司,业内领先的 FPGA 快速原型验证系统供应商,今日宣布Prodigy™ Player Pro编译、实时运行和调试软件进行了界面和流程升级,使得FPGA原型的配置更高效更直观。通过更新Player Pro也实现了对基于Intel Arria10 FPGA的Prodigy A10 Logic Module系列的支持。手动分割功能现已包含在Prodigy Logic Module的出货标准中,无需单独的软件授权。

“Player Pro系统的更新将有助于我们的客户进一步提高效率,” S2C公司首席执行官林俊雄先生表示, “设计和验证工程师可以继续执行FPGA原型的设置,同时可以轻松的实现高级的设计分割和多FPGA的联合调试功能。我们很高兴将Player Pro的支持扩展到最新的A10 Prodigy Logic Module。”

关于Player Pro – 配置,分割和多FPGA调试

Prodigy Player Pro是S2C为其基于FPGA的原型平台Prodigy Logic Module系列所开发的一款EDA工具。Player Pro主要包含三个功能 – 原型配置,实时系统控制与监测和多FPGA调试,以加速用户的开发和验证过程。用户可以通过自动编译流程进行基于RTL的设计探针插入、自动或手动设计分割、自动引脚复用插入、black-box选项(节省设计分割时间)、以及时钟或IO分配等。待控制的Prodigy Logic Module可以通过USB或者以太网连接,进而实现多FPGA配置、硬件监测、系统控制、硬件自检测和虚拟开关与状态灯的远程处理。调试设置和多FPGA调试包含在线调试设置、RTL级探针插入、大量探针插入而无需重新编译、以及大容量的外部存储器。Prodigy Player Pro与S2C的Prodigy Multi-Debug Module硬件紧密集成,允许同时调试多颗FPGA,进而大大加快FPGA原型调试的进程。

Prodigy Player Pro实时演示将于今年美国奥斯汀设计自动化大会上,S2C的#739号展位上展示。
