PRO DESIGN Expands FPGA Prototyping Portfolio with High-Speed proFPGA Virtex® UltraScale™ based FPGA Modules
Munich, 25 October 2016 – PRO DESIGN, veteran in the EMS and EDA industry, today announced the availability of five new high-speed FPGA modules for its successful and innovative proFPGA product family of FPGA based prototyping solutions.
The proFPGA product series are the most modular, flexible and scalable systems on the market based on latest Xilinx Virtex® UltraScale™ technology. It addresses customers who need a most efficient and high performance FPGA based prototyping solution for ASIC and IP prototyping, real time system integration and pre-silicon software development to reduce the time to market.
To the existing product portfolio PRO DESIGN has added with the proFPGA XCVU080, XCVU095, XCVU125, XCVU160 and XCV190 five FPGA modules, which vary widely in capacity, number and performance of high speed serial transceivers and price. The very elaborate boards are optimized and trimmed to ensure best signal integrity and where designed and produced with special high-end material to achieve highest system performance. The high-speed boards together with the specific high speed connectors allow a maximum point to point speed of up to 1 Gbps single ended over the standard FPGA IOs and up to 16.375 Gbps over the high-speed transceiver IOs. The new FPGA modules can be easily assembled on the proFPGA motherboards and mixed with the existing proFPGA FPGA modules and are fully compatible with all proFPGA accessories like interface boards and interconnection cables.
"We are thrilled by the success and product acceptance we have achieved over the last 3 years with our proFPGA product line. Already 10 of the top 20 semiconductor are successfully using our products and working closely together with us. The continuously and rapidly development of new FPGA modules based on the latest FPGA technology combined with the modular system concept allows us to provide the customers always with latest technology fulfilling highest requirements at an early stage. With our new high-speed Xilinx Virtex® UltraScale™ FPGA modules we announced today we demonstrate this again." said Gunnar Scholl, CEO at PRO DESIGN.
The proFPGA XCVU080, XCVU095, XCVU125, XCVU160 and XCV190 FPGA modules offer with its 6 extension sites, 585 free accessible user IOs and an ASIC equivalent capacity from 5.3 up to 12.7 million gates. The highlight and distinguishing feature of these FPGA modules is the availability and performance of the 64 high speed transceivers (24 x GTY and 40 x GTH transceivers) which allow to run stable with a superb performance of up to of 16.375 Gb/s data transfer rate allowing to verify and test high speed interfaces like PCIe Gen4.
PRO DESIGN will demonstrate the new proFPGA XCVU080, XCVU095, XCVU125, XCVU160 and XCV190 FPGA modules at the ARM TechCon in Santa Clara, CA at booth #220, October 26 - 27, 2016.
The new proFPGA FPGA modules are now available and the first boards were already shipped last week to the first customers.
The proFPGA product family is a complete, scalable, and modular multi FPGA Prototyping solution, which fulfills highest needs in the area of ASIC and IP Prototyping and pre-silicon software development. The proFPGA product series consists of different types of motherboards, various Xilinx Virtex® UltraScale™, Virtex® 7, Kintex® UltraScale™, and Zynq™ based FPGA modules, a set of interconnection boards/cables, and a large range of daughter boards like DDR3/4 memory boards or high speed interface boards (PCIe Gen1/2/3/4, USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, DVI, etc.). It addresses customers who need a scalable and most flexible high performance FPGA based Prototyping solution for early software development and IP/ASIC verification. The innovative system concept and technology offer best in class reusability for several projects, which guarantees the best return on invest.
The privately held company was founded in 1982 and has around 85 employees, with various facilities in Germany, France and USA. PRO DESIGN has more than 34 years of experience in the EDA market and as provider in the E²MS market. It has built extensive knowledge in the areas of FPGA board development, electronic engineering, FPGA design, high performance PCB design, construction, production, assembly and testing.
