PRO DESIGN has launched the proFPGA UNO, DUO and QUAD systems, comprising a family of modular and scalable high performance FPGA prototyping systems based on the latest Xilinx® Virtex® UltraScale+™ VU19P FPGA technology. The prototyping platforms are ideal for ASIC designs for AI, machine learning, 5G or datacentre applications.
The FPGA prototyping systems are used for high-speed design verification and bug hunting to shorten time to market by eliminating costly re-spins and providing early prototypes for software and application development.
Scalable from 1 up to 4 pluggable Xilinx® Virtex® UltraScale+™ VU19P based FPGA modules, the flagship of the proFPGA product family, the QUAD system, offers a capacity of up to 192 M ASIC gates, which is nearly a factor of 1.6x compared to the previous Xilinx® Virtex® UltraScale™ XCVU440 based generation. Up to nine proFPGA QUAD systems with overall 36 FPGA modules can easily be connected together to increase the capacity up to 1728M ASIC gates.
The proFPGA QUAD VU19P system offers 58 extension sites, with a total of 7728 FPGA standard I/Os. This is about 45% more compared to the previous generation and gives the user a maximum flexibility regarding FPGA interconnections and connecting peripherals (e.g. standard proFPGA interface and memory daughter boards or application specific extension boards).
In addition, the new QUAD platform offers 16 extension sites with a total of 192 free accessible multi-gigabit transceivers to connect and verify high-speed interfaces like PCIe Gen4 or QSFP28.
