Product Summary

The proFPGA duo V7 system is a complete, scalable, and modular multi FPGA ASIC Prototyping solution, which fulfills highest needs in the area of FPGA based Prototyping. It addresses customers who need a scalable and most flexible high performance ASIC Prototyping solution for early software development and real time system verification. 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 and scalable system concept. The FPGAs are assembled on dedicated FPGA modules, which will be plugged on the proFPGA motherboard. This offers the highest flexibility to use for example different FPGA types in one system or to scale a system in increments of one FPGA. 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 16 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.

Biggest Capacity

Equipped with up to 2 Xilinx Virtex 7 XCV2000T FPGA modules, the proFPGA duo system can handle up to 24 M ASIC gates alone on one board. Due to the fact, that multiple proFPGA quad or duo systems can be stacked or connected together, there is unlimited scalability and no theoretical maximum in capacity.

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. The proFPGA system uses an innovative dual-stage clock generator architecture. Each proFPGA motherboard is capable of distributing up to 8 true asynchronous master beats. Each master beat may be used to derive a virtually unlimited number of clock domains inside the FPGAs. With the unique proFPGA synchronization scheme, clock domains and associated reset signals can be generated fully phase-synchronous over all FPGAs on the motherboard and over multiple motherboards.
