The Virtex™ UltraScale+™ FPGA VCU118 Evaluation Kit is the ideal development environment for evaluating the cutting-edge Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs. Virtex UltraScale+ devices provide the highest performance and integration capabilities in a FinFET node, including both the highest serial I/O and signal processing bandwidth, as well as the highest on-chip memory density.
The Prodigy S7-9P Logic System by S2C is an entry-level multi-FPGA prototyping solution that utilizes the advanced Xilinx VU9P FPGA (also known as XCVU9P FPGA) from the Virtex UltraScale+ series. Abundant DSP slices and memory resources make it an ideal choice for verifying multiple computing chips.
The Prodigy Logic System series is a compact, sleek, and all-in-one design for maximum flexibility, portability, and productivity, especially the Prodigy S7-9P Logic System.
Facing the VCU118 evaluation kit, S2C's Prodigy S7-9P Logic System demonstrates absolute advantages in transportation. As a desktop prototyping solution, the all-in-one design of the Prodigy S7-9P Logic System effectively avoids breakage and damage to the system during transportation. The high-performance, compact system perfectly solves the problem of an unstable center of gravity due to the insert of daughter cards, ensuring the overall portability of the product.
Excepted for commonly used expansion connectors, such as Dual 4x28Gbps QSFP28 Interfaces and FMC connectors, compared to the VCU118, the Prodigy S7-9P Logic System has access to S2C's vast library of over 90 daughter cards to quickly build prototyping targets which means the Prodigy S7-9P Logic System can provide off-the-shelf pre-tested daughter cards according to users’ individual needs, ensuring system scalability and flexibility. It’s also easy to reconfigure and to stack for reuse over multiple projects.
Apart from that, same as the VCU118, the Prodigy S7-9P Logic System supports USB and Ethernet interfaces to download Soc design files directly into the FPGA. It is worth mentioning that the Prodigy S7-9P Logic System also provides an additional onboard SD card dedicated to writing the design for fast loading.
For compiled designs, the Prodigy S7-9P Logic System is also capable of debugging through Player Pro - RunTime for remote management, control, and monitoring of the system. Through software guidance, a step-by-step wizard enables users to check for potential broken I/O pins, interconnection nets, and clock lines. Users can also verify the global clock frequencies and I/O voltage settings.
S2C guarantees users can obtain the Prodigy S7-9P Logic System within two weeks after placing an order, which is much more efficient in solving problems and getting better after-sales service than the six-week shipping time of the XCVU118.
