Prodigy™ Cloud Cube 32

Enterprise-class, FPGA-based prototyping system


S2C’s Prodigy Cloud Cube 32 is an enterprise-class, FPGA-based prototyping system that supports up to 32 FPGAs, using a combination of S2C’s Quad, Dual or Single Prodigy Logic Modules. The Cloud Cube 32 provides engineering teams with a Complete Prototyping Platform that operates at any functional design stage and with any design size. Different designs or multiple instances of the same design can run concurrently in Cloud Cube. S2C’s Prodigy Player Pro™ Runtime Software is included for controlling and monitoring both the devices in the Cloud Cube and the Cloud Cube 32 itself.

Abundant add-on features


Prodigy Player Pro - Partition

Player Pro Partition software supports an integrated GUI environment to guide all compile steps from importing designs, setting up probes, partitioning designs (including LVDS pin-multiplexing insertion) and running P&R.


Prodigy Debug Module

Debug Module provides the capability of concurrent debug of up to 32 FPGAs in a single logic analyzer in Cloud Cube. 16GB of onboard DDR3 memory offers a very deep capture depth, and waveforms are sent to the host computer for analysis via Gigabit Ethernet.


Prodigy ProtoBridge AXI

ProtoBridge AXI links the system-level simulation environment to the FPGA-based prototyping environment through the widely-adopted AXI-4 bus protocol. ProtoBridge AXI is run in a Cloud Cube through any of the 16 Fast PCIe data ports.


Prodigy Neuro™

Neuro software provides administrative functionality to remotely manage multiple Cloud Cubes and/or Logic Modules in geographically dispersed locations and in use by globally distributed design teams.
