PRO DESIGN has introduced the Virtex 7 (V7) proFPGA duo prototyping system for ASIC and SoC prototyping. The system features the proFPGA duo motherboard and several pluggable V7-based FPGA modules. The company said that with the system, a user can combine different Xilinx Virtex 7-based FPGA modules, including the XC7VX330T, the XC7V585T, the XC7VX690T, or the XC7V2000T.

Assembled with two proFPGA Xilinx Virtex 7 XCV2000T FPGA modules, the duo system offers a capacity of up to 24M ASIC gates. Up to five proFPGA duo or quad systems can be connected together to increase the capacity. The proFPGA duo system has 16 extension sites, with a total of up to 2200 FPGA I/Os, which offers flexibility for interconnections and for adapting standard proFPGA daughter boards or application-specific extension boards such as DDR3 memory, USB 3.0, GB Ethernet, or PCIe Gen3.

Owing to the compact system architecture and the PCB layout with length-matched signal lines, the proFPGA duo system offers signal integrity and maximum system speed of up to 400MHz. Over the standard I/Os, you can achieve a single-ended point-to-point performance of up to 1.0Gb/s and over the mega gigabit transceivers (MGTs), a performance of up to 13.1Gb/s.

The system is also equipped with smart mechanical construction for efficient FPGA cooling, high stiffness, and system handling.

The system comes with the proFPGA Builder software, which provides a set of features, like an advanced clock management, integrated self- and performance test, automatic board detection and I/O voltage programming, system scan- and safety mechanism, and remote system configuration and monitoring via USB, Ethernet, or PCIe interface, which simplifies the usage of the proFPGA system.

The proFPGA duo V7 prototyping system is now available at the starting list price of $14.900.
