Technical highlights

Offering up to 32 extension sites

Extension sites for up to 4 x proFPGA FPGA modules

Up to 4400 signals for I/O and inter FPGA connection

On board operating and host data exchange system

Multi motherboard connectivity support

The proFPGA quad Motherboard is the basis for the scalable, and modular multi FPGA ASIC Prototyping solution, which fulfills highest needs in the area of FPGA based Prototyping. It addresses customers who need an 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 reuseability for several projects, which guarantees the best return on invest.

The proFPGA quad motherboard, which is optimized to achieve highest performance, offers 32 extension sites for up to 4 proFPGA FPGA modules, standard proFPGA daughter boards or cables or customer specific application boards. 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.

Further the motherboard provides an extensive set of features and tools, like remote system configuration over an host data exchange system running over USB, Ethernet or PCIe. Besides the it has an integrated mechanism to automatically detect all plugged proFPGA FPGA modules, and daughter board and sets the power and I/O voltage correctly, which extraordinarily simplifies the usage of the FPGA based system.

Finally 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.
