proFPGA Stratix 10 ASIC Prototyping

Product Summary
The proFPGA uno SG 280 system is a complete and modular FPGA solution, which meets highest requirements in the area of FPGA based Prototyping. It addresses customers who need a scalable and flexible high speed ASIC Prototyping and IP verification solution for early software development and real time system verification. The innovative system concept offers highest flexibility and reusability, reconfigurability for several projects, which guarantees the best return on invest.

Highest Flexibility
The system architecture is based on a modular system concept. The FPGAs are assembled on dedicated FPGA modules, which will be plugged on the proFPGA uno, duo or quad motherboard. This offers the highest flexibility to use for example different FPGA types in one system. The user has nearly 100% access to all available I/Os of the FPGA, which gives him maximum freedom regarding the FPGA interconnection structure. This way the prototyping system can be adapted in the best way to any user design. Furthermore the system offers a total of 8 extension sites on the top and bottom site for stan- dard proFPGA or user specific extension boards like DDR-4 memory, PCIe gen1/2/3, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 or other high performance interface.

Maximum Performance
The well designed boards of the proFPGA system are optimized and trimmed to guarantee best signal integrity and to achieve highest performance. The high speed boards together with specific high speed connectors allow a maximum point to point speed of up to 1.0 Gbps single ended over the standard FPGA I/O and up to 17.4 Gbps differential over the high speed serial transceivers of the FPGA. This performance combined with the high interconnection flexibility allows the designer to run his design at maximum speed in the proFPGA system.

Big Capacity
Equipped with one Intel® Altera® Stratix® 10 280 FPGA module, the proFPGA uno system can handle up to 20 M ASIC gates on only one board.

Ver User Friendly
The proFPGA prototyping system provides an extensive set of features and tools, like remote system configuration, integrated self and performance test, automatic board detection, automatic I/O voltage programming, system scan and safety mechanism, which simplifies the usage of the FPGA based system tremendously.
