The S2C Prodigy Multi-Debug Module is an innovative debug solution for FPGA prototyping. It has the ability to run deep-trace debugging on multiple FPGAs simultaneously. It can trace up-to 32K signals per FPGA in 8 groups of 4K signals each without re-compiling, and can store 8GB of waveform data without consuming user memories.

Prodigy Multi-Debug Module has been helping FPGA prototyping customers to shorten the debug process and get their designs to market quickly with greater confidence.
MDM Pro combines off-FPGA hardware for “deep” trace-data storage and complex hardware trigger logic, in combination with probe multiplexing IP in the FPGA to access a large number of debug probes over a few FPGA high-speed GTY connections to minimize the consumption of FPGA I/O, and the ability to setup more probe connections than need to be viewed at the same time so that more probes may be viewed when needed without recompiling the FPGA or degrading the debug performance.
MDM Pro now offers two modes of operations to further enhance flexibility and productivity. The traditional Compile mode works with Player Pro cockpit to specify debug nodes and trigger condition. In the new IP mode, users can directly instantiate the debug IP in the DUT design and bypass the Player Pro setup.
Today's SoC design debug tools for FPGA prototyping are less than ideal, and multi-FPGA prototyping adds to the challenge of implementing the capabilities of an ideal SoC design debug tool. Get the latest insights into advanced SoC debugging with S2C's whitepaper on multi-FPGA prototyping.
