PRO DESIGN Expands Prototyping Portfolio with ultra-fast proFPGA Virtex® UltraScale+™ based FPGA Modules

Austin, 19 June 2017 – PRO DESIGN, veteran in the EMS and EDA industry, today releases three new high-speed FPGA modules for its successful and innovative proFPGA product family of FPGA based prototyping solutions at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) in Austin, Texas.

The proFPGA product series are the most modular, flexible and scalable systems on the market based on latest Xilinx Virtex® UltraScale™, UltraScale+™ and Intel® Stratix®10 FPGA technologies. 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.

With the proFPGA XCVU9P, XCVU7P and XCVU5P UltraScale+™ FPGA modules PRO DESIGN has added further three products to the existing proFPGA product portfolio. The very elaborate boards are optimized and trimmed to ensure best signal integrity and where designed and produced with special high-end PCB material to reach highest performance and signal rating. In combination with the dedicated high-speed connectors a maximum point to point speed of up to 1 Gbps single ended over the standard FPGA IOs and up to 23 Gbps over the high-speed transceiver IOs can be achieved.

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.

The new FPGA modules offer with its 6 extension sites, 585 free accessible user IOs and an ASIC equivalent capacity from 7.1 up to 14 million gates. The highlight and distinguishing feature of these FPGA modules is the availability and performance of the 64 high speed transceivers (GTY) which allow to run stable with a superb performance of up to of 23 Gb/s data transfer rate allowing to verify and test high speed interfaces like PCIe Gen4.

Availability

The proFPGA XCVU9P, XCVU7P and XCVU5P FPGA Modules are available since June 2017.

Demonstration

PRO DESIGN will demonstrate the proFPGA UltraScale+™ based FPGA Modules in Austin, Texas at booth #1632 at the DAC, from June 19 to June 21, 2017.
