K7 Prodigy Logic Module 

The S2C K7 Prodigy Logic Module is equipped with one Xilinx Kintex-7 XC7K410T or XC7K325T FPGA device and can prototype a design with a capacity up to 4.1M gates. The K7 Prodigy Logic Module features the largest number of user I/Os in its class with 432 I/Os on four Dedicated I/O connectors and 16 channels of GTX transceivers on two Differential I/O connectors. The GTX transceivers are capable of running up to 10Gbps with -2 grade FPGA devices. Users can easily download to FPGAs, generate programmable clocks, adjust I/O voltages and run self-tests on hardware from S2C’s Prodigy Player Pro Runtime software via a straightforward USB2.0 interface. With S2C K7 PRODIGY Logic Module’s affordable pricing, project managers can deploy a large number of FPGA-based prototypes to accelerate hardware verification and software development in parallel.

Rapid System Prototyping

The flexibility and reusability of K7 Prodigy Logic Modules empower designers to prototype a variety of different applications. Different SoC designs have different peripheral requirements. The peripherals can be designed as daughter boards to interface with the K7 Prodigy Logic Module. Thus the main FPGA boards are reusable for different applications to save cost. S2C supplies a wide array of Prodigy Prototype Ready Accessory Modules to help you quickly build a comprehensive SoC prototype. Click here to select the off-the-shelf daughter boards for your prototyping system. 

The K7 Prodigy Logic Module is available in 2 configurations based on the K7 FPGA used. You can also create your desired prototype configuration by stacking or tiling multiple K7 Prodigy Logic Modules together. In addition, the K7 Prodigy Logic Modules adopt a similar form factor to S2C’s high-capacity V7 Prodigy Logic Module with 1, 2 or 4 Virtex-7 2000T devices with capacity of up to 80 million ASIC gates on a single board. Therefore, if a design outgrows the capacity of a K7 Prodigy Logic Module, project managers can migrate to V7 Prodigy Logic Modules seamlessly. For larger SoC designs that cannot fit into a K7 Prodigy Logic Module, project managers can still utilize the K7 Prodigy Logic Modules for IP development, block-level verification, simulation acceleration and partial software development.
