Speeds the Development of SoC Prototypes Used for System Verification and Software Development
San Jose, CA – January 10, 2011 – S2C Inc., a leading rapid SoC prototyping solutions provider, announced the addition of 7 new Prototype Ready accessories to its growing library of pre-engineered hardware and software components aimed at speeding the development of SoC prototypes. These modules work with S2C’s TAI LM family of rapid SoC prototyping tools.
The newly released Prototype Ready accessory modules include:
These pre-engineered solutions enable the user to focus on the SoC prototype development rather than have to re-engineer solutions that have been engineered and documented by S2C. "The new Prototype Ready accessories work out-of-box with the S2C's TAI Logic Module series. When building SoC prototypes on FPGA, designers simply choose the TAI Logic Modules that fit their design capacity requirements and then select the interface modules from our Prototype Ready library that fit their application.” said Mon-Ren Chene, Chairman and CTO of S2C. “With the addition of these 7 new Prototype Ready accessory modules, customers now have almost 40 different accessory modules to help them to rapidly build SoC prototypes instead of creating and debugging custom target accessory boards."
The new Prototype Ready accessories are suitable for various applications. The USB2.0 PHY module provides UTMI interface to USB host or device. The PCI and PCI master interface module enables prototypes to connect with 32bit 33MHz PCI and PCI master socket. The 2-channel 256M byte DDR2 on SO-DIMM memory module provides 2-channels external DDR2 memory. The SPI flash memory module provides 128Mbit external flash memory. The 2G bytes pre-tested DDR2 and DDR3 SO-DIMM memory module are verified on both S2C’s new S4 and V6 TAI Logic Module so they can perform out-of-box up to 533Mbps for DDR2 and 10660Mbps for DDR3 data rates.
