S2C's rapid prototyping platform, the TAI Logic Module series, helps accelerate the completion of SoC design projects. From ESL exploration, IP design/validation and system integration to software development, TAI Logic Module series meet design needs at every stage. At booth #533, S2C will demonstrate 4 major design flows using the TAI Logic Module:

    --  Design Exploration flow -  Explore design algorithm and SoC architecture
        by co-modeling TAI Logic Module with Mentor Vista virtual platform
    --  IP Validation flow -  Speed up IP selection and validation by using
        Prototype Ready(TM) IP, which will be demonstrated with Northwest
        Logic's PCIe Gen3 IP tested on TAI Logic Module
    --  System Integration flow - Build up rapid prototype quickly with over 70
        Prototype Ready(TM) TAI Logic Module Interface daughter cards
    --  Software Development flow - Achieve early software development on a
        virtual prototype with a bridge to TAI Logic Module using the Mentor
        Embedded CodeBench Virtual Edition tool

S2C's floor demonstrations will be open to the public. Exhibition hours are from 9:00am to 6:00pm from June 2(nd) to 4(th).

About S2C V7 TAI Logic Modules

The V7 TAI Logic Module series, S2C's fifth generation products, are designed to make prototyping a reality and a pleasant experience for designs ranging from 20 Million up to 80 Million ASIC gates on a single board. Multiple V7 TAI Logic Modules can be stacked or tiled to meet higher gate capacity requirements.

The V7 TAI Logic Module has many significant improvements that facilitate higher system prototype performance, reliability and ease-of-use. The V7 TAI Logic Module now supports the following hardware control functions through both the USB and Ethernet interface from a Windows or Linux machine:

    --  Fast FPGA design download with multiple options - JTAG, USB, SD Card and
    --  Comprehensive Self-Test for all I/O, interconnections and clocks
    --  Program clocks, select clock sources and adjust on-board programmable
        clock frequencies
    --  Remote hardware control via Ethernet interface - Reset, configure FPGA
        design and execute run-time utilities
    --  Monitor on-board voltage, current and temperature and automatically take
        corrective action upon limits violation
    --  Read-back hardware information - global clock frequencies, hardware
        type, firmware details etc.
    --  Adjust I/O voltages, FPGA cooling fan speed through software
    --  Enables re-use of daughter cards designed for previous generation
        prototyping systems such as Virtex-6 or Virtex-5 TAI LM systems

S2C also provides optional prototype creation and multi-FPGA debug software, C-API co-modeling and a large library of off-the-shelf Prototype Ready IP & Accessories to speed up the creation of design prototypes using the V7 TAI Logic Modules.
