S2C Leads FPGA Prototyping with Support for Xilinx Next Generation Virtex® UltraScale 440 FPGA
Dec 03, 2014

San Jose, CA - December 3, 2014 - S2C Inc., a leading provider of FPGA-base rapid prototyping solutions, today announced plans to deliver its family of prototyping boards that support the latest in Xilinx’s Virtex UltraScale 440 FPGA. S2C Virtex UltraScale Logic Modules will boast double the capacity, higher performance, and increased flexibility and expandability over previous versions.

Design teams can expect twice as many logic cells and block RAMs on a single board reaching up to 176M ASIC gates with a S2C's Quad offering. The ability to link 32 prototyping boards together will allow FPGA prototyping of designs reaching 1B ASIC gates. The increase in capacity will also be met with significant performance enhancements including 2X faster performance and integration with up to a 50% reduction in power consumption, 30% improvements to transceiver bandwidth, a 2400 Mb/s DDR4 interface, and integrated endpoint blocks for PCIe Gen3.

"Xilinx's next generation Virtex UltraScale devices are very powerful and S2C&'s customers will be able maximize that power with our advanced capabilities," said Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C. "In addition to increased capacity and performance, our Virtex UltraScale Logic Modules will be linked to our complete suite of tools for optimized partitioning, algorithm exploration, multi-FPGA deep trace debug, and remote management allowing our customers to meet their strict time-to-market schedules."

"S2C's prototyping technology is a great complement to the industry's largest 20nm FPGA, the Virtex® , UltraScale™ 440," mentioned Hanneke Krekels, director of the test, measurement and emulation market segment at Xilinx. "Positioned to provide unprecedented levels of performance, system integration and bandwidth, VU440 customers will be able to leverage joint Xilinx and S2C technologies to prototype their latest large designs."
