S2C provides the largest library of off-the-shelf interfaces and accessories for FPGA-prototyping. All interfaces and accessories work with the Prodigy Logic Modules to further speed up and simplify your system prototyping process. Accessory modules are supplied as daughter boards that plug into the Prodigy Logic Module, providing pre-tested interfaces and reference design flows for easy bring-up. Contact your S2C sales representative for the latest reference designs.
A vast library of pre-tested daughter cards can save precious engineering time and reduce risks. S2C has dozens of daughter cards covering processors, embedded & multimedia, high-speed GT and memory applications.
FPGA prototyping system you select should have abundant unused I/O pins on I/O connectors to use daughter cards. The number of expansion connectors and types are important criteria when selecting suitable prototyping hardware. Another key consideration is whether the FPGA prototyping vendor can provide daughter card customization services. Off-the-shelf solutions solve many problems but sometimes special system interfaces or optimizations for specific SoC and ASIC applications are required.
A common problem is the limitations of current FPGA vendor's evaluation kits and in-house FPGA boards. Most evaluation boards have fixed interfaces embedded on the board which often cannot meet the SoC/ASIC prototyping requirements and is hard to reuse on new projects. Many home-grown FPGA boards also have the same limitation and easily get outdated when the design specification changes, and they are hard to reuse for future projects. S2C's Prototype Ready IP includes daughter cards and reference design. It makes daughter cards a very important part of the solution. The goal is to speed up and simplify customers’ system prototyping process.
S2C has had numerous customization services over the past 15 years, the typical SOW covers schematic design, PCB layout, SI simulation (optional), manufacture, hardware initial bring-up and test design develop and delivery. Even if you would prefer to build the daughter card in-house S2C can provide the daughter card design guideline and support to speed your efforts and reduce risk of delays.
