S2C Releases New Prototype Ready™ ARM11 and ARM9 Modules for FPGA-Based Prototypes

S2C Releases New Prototype Ready™ ARM11 and ARM9 Modules for FPGA-Based Prototypes Jun 02, 2012

Delivering a Straightforward Prototyping Environment Using ARM Test Chips from GUC

San Jose, CA – Jun 1st, 2012 – S2C today announced that it has added ARM1176 and ARM926 GUC test chip modules to the comprehensive family of Prototype Ready™ accessories used to create FPGA-based prototypes and to interface FPGA-based prototype boards to the user’s target operating environment. The 2 new ARM test chip modules can be used with all S2C SoC/ASIC prototyping hardware including Virtex-7 TAI Logic Modules, Stratix-4 TAI Logic Modules, Stratix-4 TAI Verification modules, Virtex-6 TAI Logic Modules and Virtex-6 TAI Verification Modules. The ARM test chips are supplied by Global Unichip Corp. (GUC), the Flexible ASIC Leader™. The two new modules are available to all GUC customers.

Mon-Ren Chene, S2C’s Chairman and CTO said, “Many of our customers complained that they had reached limitations mapping ARM cores in FPGAs or using other external ARM solutions for building their SoC prototypes and wanted to see a more straightforward solution. As a result, we have partnered with GUC to supply a straightforward solution using GUC’s ARM1176 and ARM926 test chips with the AMBA bus interfaces brought out directly on the test chip I/O. These new test chip modules simplify the integration of ARM cores with rest of SoC on a FPGA prototype; providing a high performance solution.”


The ARM1176 and ARM926 GUC Test Chip Modules are available today for GUC customers worldwide. Contact your local S2C sales office for more information.
