S2C Inc. has recently unleashed its Xilinx SingleE Virtex-7 logic module. According to the company, the module is the industry's smallest form-factor (260 x 170mm), all-purpose, stand-alone prototyping system based on Xilinx's Virtex-7 2000T FPGA. The system uses S2C's 5th generation technology and can handle up to 20M gate designs.

SingleE Virtex-7 logic module

The module features 960 I/Os on eight high-speed connectors and allows access to a library of over 70 daughter cards for quickly building a prototype target. In addition, it has an on-board DDR3 SO-DIMM socket extending to 8GB of memory running at 1600MB/s and remote control management through Ethernet and USB for programmable clock generations, design resets, virtual I/Os and switches, I/O voltage setting and monitoring of voltage/current/temperature and read back hardware status. It also supports multiple SingleE V7 logic module management from one PC.

Coupled with S2C's ProtoBridge software that accelerates FPGA verification using co-modelling technology, the SingleE V7 logic module is the perfect platform for IP and algorithm creation, stated S2C. Engineers are able to leverage the strengths of system-level simulation and RTL-level design accuracy, shorten design and verification time, and ensure higher product quality through improved test coverage.

Designers can achieve these goals with the ability to: link FPGA prototyping to ESL simulations for model availability and accuracy; validate SoC software on the target architecture and design algorithm in real hardware; read/write data at speeds of up to 500MB/s data through the PCIe Gen2 interface from computers to AXI-based designs mapped to the logic module; create corner test cases in software and run exercises on the prototype; and run regression tests on their FPGA prototype using vectors stored in the host computer.

S2C is offering introductory pricing from now until the end of the year along with an exclusive bundle deal with its ProtoBridge software solution.
