Tewksbury, MA – December 7, 2021 – Avery Design Systems, a leader in functional verification solutions, today announced the latest in native FPGA speed adapters for PCIe® Gen6 and advanced memory technologies for LPDDR5 and HBM3. The latest offering is a result of a partnership with S2C EDA and its Prodigy Logic Matrix LX2 System for high-performance ASIC/SoC prototyping, and enables system validation of the latest data center, NVMe and embedded storage, and AI/ML SoC designs that incorporate the latest high speed interconnect and memory technologies.

"Avery speed adapters accelerate software development, hardware verification and system validation by enabling FPGA prototypes to be integrated with native system platforms to allow validation to be performed at actual system run speeds. This approach overcomes the inherent performance limitations of multi-FPGA representations of System SoCs and that lack support for latest generation of PCIe or memory technologies,” said Chris Browy, VP sales and marketing of Avery." By partnering with S2C we address the ever-increasing complexity and performance requirements in large-scale SoC designs with a solution that provides accurate and timely verification methodologies.”

"FPGA prototyping, in essence, is about high-performance validation. The high-performance quality not only accelerates the design cycle but also enables hardware and software bugs to be caught through the interaction with real-world data,” said Ying Chen, VP sales and marketing of S2C. “The Logic Matrix LX2 is a high-density FPGA prototyping platform with eight Xilinx VU19P FPGAs designed to address the needs for both capacity and performance in complex SoC designs. By partnering with Avery, our customers can now easily validate against the latest generations of PCIe and memory interfaces.”
