Is the risk of IC respins keeping you up at night? Find out why is FPGA prototyping getting more popular than ever and what a complete prototyping solution looks like!

While there are various verification methodologies such as software simulation and hardware emulation, FPGA prototyping is often the preferred choice especially for speed and performance considerations to support software development & testing. But to meet other challenges and requirements mentioned in earlier slides, a complete prototyping platform must also be scalable, flexible and high performance while supporting designs big and small. Such prototyping solution also needs to offer easy-to-use compilation, partitioning and debugging capabilities. Remote access is a must but we also need to consider multi-user/multi-project management. Lastly, the solution should provide reusable and upgradable options to maximize the captial investments.
In addition to providing prototyping hardware, it is also necessary for a complete prototyping solution to include accessories, peripherals, software tools and flows to bring convenience and productivity to the table. S2C offers rich libraries of daughter cards and reference designs, high bandwidth link between PC software and DUT, runtime management and partition software, multi-FPGA debugging tool and cloud management software. We will be covering these items in greater details in subsequent slides. If you want to learn more, please click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXFWX4eYMrs&t=19s
