The proFPGA system s a modular, scalable, flexible, and high performance multi FPGA prototyping solution, which fulfils highest needs for IP development and early software development.
At the DVCon 2014, PRO DESIGN will exhibit a live demo of its modular, most flexible and high performance proFPGA quad V7 system and the proFPGA uno IP development platform. The displayed systems consist of the proFPGA quad and uno motherboard and is equipped with a exchangeable proFPGA Xilinx Virtex 7 XCV2000T FPGA module offering up to 12 M ASIC gates capacity with one FPGA module. Furthermore the system offers a total of up to 32 extension sites on the top and bottom site for different kind of FPGA modules (Xilinx or Altera), standard proFPGA daughter boards or user specific extension boards like DDR3 memory, PCIe Gen3 and a big range of interconnection boards/cables.
Beside the new proFPGA hardware, PRO DESIGN will show the innovative and easy to use system software called "proFPGA Builder". With the proFPGA Builder, which works on Windows and Linux platform, the user can already model and test the system architecture even without the prototyping hardware. Additionally the user can easily import an already built architecture of the proFPGA prototyping system to his host PC, by connecting and scanning the system over USB, Ethernet or PCIe interface. The software is capable of automatically detecting physical board assembly and generating the complete code framework for multi-FPGA HDL designs, including all scripts and board description files for synthesis, partitioning and running the design.
Further the software provides an extensive set of features, like an advanced clock management, integrated self- and performance test, I/O voltage programming and remote system configuration and monitoring via USB, Ethernet or PCIe which extraordinarily simplifies the usage of the proFPGA system.
