ASIC Prototyping Solution

Product Summary
The proFPGA uno V7 system is a modular and flexible IP Prototyping and verification solution, which fulfills highest needs in the area of FPGA based Prototyping. It addresses customers who need a modular and most flexible high performance Prototyping solution for early software development, real time system verification and IP development. The innovative system concept and technologies offer highest flexibility and reusability 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 proFPGA modules, which will be plugged on the proFPGA motherboard. This offers the highest flexibility to use for example different FPGA types. Besides the user has nearly 100% access to all available I/Os of the FPGA, which gives him maximum freedom regarding the FPGA interconnection structure. Hence the prototyping system can be adapted the best way to meet the demands of any user design. Furthermore the system offers a total of 8 extension sites on the top and bottom site for standard proFPGA or user specific extension boards like DDR-3 memory, high performance interface, interconnection or adaptor boards.

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 the specific high speed connectors allow a maximum point to point speed of up to 1.8 Gbps over the standard FPGA I/O and up to 12.5 Gbps over the MGT of the FPGA. This fast performance combined with the high interconnection flexibility offer the designer an maximum speed of his design running in the proFPGA system.

Big Capacity
Equipped with one Xilinx Virtex 7 XCV2000T FPGA moduls, the proFPGA uno system can handle up to12 M ASIC gates alone on one board.

Extensive User Comfort
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 extraordinarily simplifies the usage of the FPGA based system.
