S2C Inc. Key Developments

S2C Inc. Announces Development of a New Family of Arria 10 Prodigy FPGA Prototyping Logic Modules Based on Altera's Arria 10 1150GX FPGA

S2C Inc. has announced the development of a new family of Arria 10 Prodigy FPGA Prototyping Logic Modules based on Altera's Arria 10 1150GX FPGA.  The A10 Prodigy Logic Modules are being designed to be ideally suited for high-performance computing applications as well as prototyping small to medium-sized SoCs.  The A10 Single Logic Module will be compact in size to allow for increased flexibility and portability. This low cost, all-purpose system can be used stand-alone or scaled up to 16 FPGAs within S2C's Prodigy Cloud Cube chassis.  The System will be integrated with S2C's, vast library of daughter cards to quickly build prototype targets. Highlights of the Arria 10 Prodigy Logic Module include: Compatibility with Altera's Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL allowing easy implementation for HPC applications; Large Capacity and Scalability with 1,150K Logic Elements, 53Mbs of M20K memory, and 3,036 DSP resources and ability to connect multiple boards together for even greater capacity; 48 Gigabit Transceivers that can run at 16Gbps; 576 high-performance I/Os through 4 Prodigy Connectors that supports a variety of daughter cards; Compact form factor (170mm x 190mm); and Low-cost parallel system integration and software development. The A10 Prodigy Logic Module will work seamlessly with the full set of Prodigy Complete Prototyping Platform components including its Prodigy Player Pro software and Prodigy Multi-Debug Module that allows for undisputed configuration, partitioning, and multi-FPGA debug capabilities.  The System will come packaged with 6th generation remote management functions through either USB or Ethernet.  The Prodigy Player Pro Runtime Software can be run on both Windows and Linux systems to perform basic functions such as FPGA download, write/read on-board SD card for off-line download, clock and reset set-up, I/O voltage settings, hardware monitoring, and self-test.  The Player Pro Runtime Software also supports Virtual SWs & LEDs for simple tasks such as changing a setting or indicating a condition remotely, and automatically determining which daughter cards are installed on Logic Modules or cable setups between connectors. The A10 Prodigy Logic Module will be available in early 2017.

S2C Inc. Announces Availability of New Prodigy Juno ARM Interface Module

S2C Inc. has announced the availability of its new Prodigy Juno ARM Interface Module. The module works with the Juno ARM® Development Platform, speeding up and increasing the scalability of FPGA prototyping for designs based on ARMv8-A architecture. The Prodigy Juno ARM Interface Module effectively bridges the software development environment to company's Prodigy Logic Modules, for prototyping custom logic blocks alongside the ARM-based processor. The Juno ARM Development Platform includes the Juno Versatile Express board and an ARMv8-A reference software port available through Linaro Linux. The Prodigy ARM Juno Interface Module works seamlessly with the Prodigy Complete Prototyping Platform that includes advanced capabilities for design partitioning, prototype configuration, multi-FPGA debug, and the ability to scale beyond 1.5B gates utilizing the Prodigy Cloud Cube architecture. The company provides a complete easy set up reference design as part of the Prodigy Juno ARM Interface Module package. It connects S2C Prodigy Virtex UltraScale and Kintex UltraScale Logic Modules with the Juno ARM Development Platform. The reference design shows: comprehensive self-testing between the two environments; expanded FPGA capacity; early porting of OS kernel or driver code for ARMv8-A processors; and high-speed DDR4 memory access between the Logic Module(s) and Juno ARM Development Platform. The Prodigy Juno Interface Module is available now for the Prodigy Virtex UltraScale Logic Module series.

S2C, Inc. Announces the Availability and delivery of PCIe VU440 Prodigy Logic Module

S2C Inc. has announced the availability and delivery of its PCIe VU440 Prodigy Logic Module (LM). Not only can the Logic Module be used as a standalone device, but also its standard profile form factor enables installation inside closed PCs and Servers through the use of built-in PCIe edge connector. The unique PCIe VU Prodigy Logic Module has several key advantages such as downloading and controlling the FPGA externally from USB or Ethernet without opening the PC/Server, support for FPGA re-download from 4 design files from on-board micro SD card, centralized remote control and monitoring of multiple Prodigy LMs installed in multiple PC/Servers via a separate Ethernet network, high-performance FPGA prototyping of PCIe-based designs, creation of large PCIe-based FPGA networks, and sole use of PCIe interface for customer applications vs. sharing for FPGA download. In addition, the Logic Module is equipped with one Xilinx UltraScale 440 FPGA and features large capacity with 5.54M System Logic Cell, 88.6Mb of memory, 2,880 DSP Slices, and 2 DDR4 SO-DIMM sockets to support up to 32GB of DDR4 memory; flexible and Powerful I/Os including 432 general purpose I/Os and 12 GTH transceivers through 3 high-speed Prodigy Connectors; standard Profile Form Factor for PCIe Gen3, Gen2, and Gen1 in x1, x2, x4, and x8; compatibility with over 80 Prodigy Daughter Cards; automatic daughter card detection; and abundant add-on features. Like S2C's full family of VU Prodigy Logic Modules, PCIe VU440 features 6th generation remote management functions through either USB or Ethernet. State-of-the-art Prodigy Player Pro™ Runtime Software is included and can be run on both Windows and Linux systems to exercise full control over the Prodigy Logic Module without the need to be a hardware expert. Player Pro features: FPGA Configuration Capabilities " including GUI-based FPGA download with powerful download options; Large Number of Virtual I/Os " for tasks such as changing a setting or indication a condition remotely; Remote System Control " to conveniently program clock sources, reset the Logic Module, read back hardware information, and change the IP address. The PCIe VU Prodigy Logic Module is thoroughly integrated into the Prodigy Complete Prototyping Platform giving to provide users with the most comprehensive solution in FPGA prototyping. The complete solution allows users to realize benefits throughout the design flow and accelerate time-to-market. S2C's PCIe VU440 Prodigy Logic Module is available now.
