Chairman's Corner
Mon-Ren Chene
Chairman and CTO

We continue to expand our rapid SoC prototyping product offering. Our goal is to provide you with real engineering solutions to your prototyping challenges. We have added our Verification Module technology (patent pending), released in June of this year, to our Xilinx products.

The new V6 TAI Verification Module give you the ability to simultaneously debug signals from multiple FPGAs with your current Xilinx or 3rd party debug tools. It addition it provides you high speed links between your prototyping environment and your verification environment and can also be used as a logic module.

  • V6 TAI Verification Module
  • SoCIP Roadshow to Visit 8 Cities in China in October
  • S2C adds 9 New Prototype Ready™ Accessories to its Rapid SoC Prototyping Environment
  • S2C Customer Successes

  • We have added 9 new Prototype Ready™ accessories. Many of these are developed in response to customer needs. The end result is that we continue to grow our Prototype Ready pre-engineered portfolio to make it easier for you to develop your FPGA prototypes.

    To date, we have sold over 400 systems to over 80 customers. Our Success Story series documents how our customers are taking advantage of our technology to help them deliver better products to market ahead of their competition. Learn more about S2C firsthand by attending one of our roadshows that are being held in October of this year.

    As always, I want to hear from you to understand what we can do to improve your SoC prototyping environment. It is by listening to our customer needs that we continue to innovate and deliver the products that you need.

    V6 TAI Verification Module

    S2C's Verification Module Technology (patent pending) is now available for its Xilinx based FPGA prototyping systems. The V6 TAI Verification Module enables the high-speed transfer of massive data between the FPGA prototyping environment and the user's verification environment. Users can use their Xilinx ChipScope or 3rd party debug environments to view up to 4 FPGAs simultaneously. In addition, the V6 TAI Verification Module can be used to prototype designs from 1.3 million ASIC gates to 4.7 million ASIC gates. The V6 TAI Verification module provides high speed interfaces including PCIe Gen2, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA 2 and USB 3.0.

    Mon-Ren Chene, S2C's Chairman and CTO, said: "Our Xilinx based customers have requested our Verification Module technology that was first released in June of this year. This is breakthrough technology to interface the user's FPGA prototype and verification environments. The simultaneous multi-FPGA debug gives users new important capabilities as designs are often split across multiple FPGAs. FPGA prototyping systems are running at system or close to system speeds. The high speed interfaces make it easier to connect the FPGA prototype environments to the actual target system environments."

    SoCIP Roadshow to Visit 8 Cities in China in October

    If you were able to attend the annual SoCIP show that was held in May in Shanghai and Beijing you will be able to get up-to-date SoC design and verification information at one of the 8 ½ day roadshows being held in China in October of this year.

    S2C adds 9 New Prototype Ready™ Accessories to its Rapid SoC Prototyping Environment

    We have added 9 new Prototype Ready accessories to its broad portfolio of Prototype Ready: accessories, reference designs and IP. These Prototype Ready pre-engineered solutions accelerate the prototype development time by giving the designer a broad array of choices on how to implement the prototype and how to interface the prototype to the actual operating environment.

    Mon-Ren Chene, Chairman and CTO of S2C said: "our focus is on giving our customer the building blocks to rapidly create SoC prototypes. We pride ourselves in working closely with our customers and in adding products to our portfolio to meet our customer's special requirements. Many of these new Prototype Ready accessories were developed to meet specific customer needs."

    S2C Customer Successes

    S2C's customers see the benefits of SoC prototyping to help them to develop leading edge SoCs. We are documenting those successes with our new "Success Story" series that is published on our website. These are brief 2-page articles that describe the benefits of using S2C prototyping solutions in the customer's own words. Each success story also includes a photo of the customer's prototype environment. The three initial success stories are from Spreadtrum, Actions Semiconductor and Ingenic.


    About S2C

    Founded and headquartered in San Jose, California, S2C has been successfully delivering rapid SoC prototyping tools since 2003. S2C provides:

    • Rapid SoC FPGA-based prototyping hardware and automation software
    • Prototype Ready™ IP, Platforms, and Accessories
    • System-level design verification and acceleration

    S2C's value is our singular focus on SoC/ASIC development. Our highly qualified engineering team and customer-focused sales force understands our customers’ SoC development needs. S2C’s unique FPGA-based solution, using our patented TAI IP technology, enables designers to quickly assemble FPGA-based SoC prototypes on S2C FPGA boards. This gives customers an early start on software development, typically the long pole item in development schedules. Combining rapid prototyping methodologies with a comprehensive portfolio of Prototype Ready IP and advanced verification and acceleration solutions, S2C solutions greatly reduces the SoC design cycle.

    In addition to the headquarters in San Jose, CA, S2C currently has 4 direct offices located in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen China and HsinChu, Taiwan. S2C is also the organizer of the annual SoCIP seminar and exhibition in China, which brings SoC designers from the Asia-Pacific region together with international silicon IP and SoC solution vendors.
