S2C Boasts Largest Prototype Ready™ Interfaces Library for Virtex-7 based ASIC Prototyping

S2C Boasts Largest Prototype Ready™ Interfaces Library for Virtex-7 based ASIC Prototyping Jan 28, 2013

Added 13 New Modules including a new High-Speed GTX Peripheral Category

San Jose, CA – Jan 28, 2013 - S2C Inc., a leading rapid SoC prototyping solutions provider, announced today the addition of 13 new Prototype Ready interface cards and accessories to its growing library of pre-engineered hardware and software components aimed at accelerating the development of SoC prototypes. These new modules enable users to prototype SoC designs with a variety of interfaces such as PCIe, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI, LCD and Dual A9 ARM Processor, and work out-of-box with the new S2C&rsquo's Virtex-7 TAI Logic Module Series Rapid SoC/ASIC Prototyping Platform. These pre-engineered solutions enable users to focus on SoC prototype development rather than create solutions all over again that have been engineered and verified by S2C.

“ With 13 new additions to our Prototype Ready Library, I believe, we now have the largest collection of interface cards and accessories for Rapid SoC/ASIC Prototyping Platform especially for prototyping using the latest Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGAs,” said Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C. "We have designed the new V7 TAI Logic Module series to be compatible with our previous generation platforms so that our large library of Prototype Ready Interface Cards and Accessories can be reused. Exisiting users can also easily reuse their current Virtex-5 and Virtex-6 prototyping environment while upgrading to the latest Virtex-7 2000T FPGA.”

The newly released Prototype Ready Interfaces and Accessory modules include:

  • 2 Channel Gigabit Ethernet PHY Interface Module

  • 4-Lane PCIe Gen2 GTX Module

  • 4 Channel Transceivers on SMA GTX Module

  • Xilinx Zynq ZC702 Interface Module

  • 2 Channel 1GB DDR3 on SO-DIMM Memory Module

  • HDMI Transmitter Interface Module

  • Embedded Peripheral Interface Module Type A

  • Embedded Peripheral Interface Module Type B

  • Interconnection Module Type V

  • Interconnection Module Type HQ

  • I/O Level Shifting Module Type D

  • GTX I/O Testing Module

  • Power Expansion Module

A new Prototype Ready Interfaces Modules Category, High-Speed GTX Peripherals, has been created to utilize the Gigabit Transceivers, GTX I/O, on the Virtex-7 FPGA. Each of these new High-Speed GTX Peripheral Modules can support up to 8 GTX I/O for high-speed connectivity as well as 12 single-ended I/O for control signals. Currently, there are 3 modules in this category: x4 Gen2 PCIe, SATA and SMA. S2C now has 6 categories of Prototype Ready Library with over 60 types of modules. The table below summarizes the 6 categories.
