Prototyping Billion-Gate Designs with Protium X1 Enterprise Prototyping System

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

FPGA-based Prototyping certainly isn’t new. And our needs for early firmware and software development, memory modeling and advanced data capture haven’t gotten any better, if anything - they have gotten worse. Hi, I’m Amelia Dalton - host of Chalk Talk. Today my Juergen Jaeger from Cadence Design Systems and I are talking about the next generation of FPGA-based prototyping and how the first Scalable, Data Center-Optimized Enterprise Prototyping System can get your system design up and running faster than ever before.
