Demo at the 50th Design Automation Conference (DAC), June 2-5, Austin, TX, USA
Paris, France – April 16, 2013 – Flexras Technologies, the provider of high performance partitioning software, today announced the release 3.2 of its WasgaTMCompiler Design Suite for FPGA-based prototyping. This new release supports the Xilinx® Virtex®-7 FPGA and includes new features that accelerate SoC rapid prototyping.
Flexras will demonstrate Wasga Compiler for the Virtex-7 FPGA-based systems at DAC, Booth #1324, June 2-5, 2013, Austin,TX, USA.
“Flexras' announcement of their support of the Vivado™ Design Suite and the Virtex-7 FPGA platform clearly reinforces Xilinx’s leadership in this marketplace. The tremendous growth in ASIC SoC complexity is fueling the demand for ever larger FPGAs and multi-chip partitioning tools,” says Kirk Saban, Virtex-7 Product Line Manager at Xilinx.
“Collaboration with Xilinx has allowed us to optimize our partitioning flow for next generation SoC implementations based on Virtex-7 All Programmable FPGA-based prototyping systems,” said Hayder Mrabet, CEO of Flexras Technologies. “With its timing-driven automatic partitioning and high speed Virtex-7 FPGA Advanced Pin Multiplexing (APM) IP for inter-FPGA communications, Wasga Compiler enables very fast prototyping of complex SoCs, achieving efficient results in days, or even hours.”
Enhancements to Wasga Compiler include:
- Virtex-7 FPGA Advanced Pin Multiplexing IPs (APM) using Serdes and LVDS
- Automatic generation of XDC pin-planning and timing constraints for Vivado Design Suite
- Logic replication and pruning to optimize connectivity between FPGAs
- Modeling of inter-FPGA configurable cables
The Wasga Compiler Design Suite supports Dini boards, including the DNV7F2A. It is also included in Reflex’s FPP25 offering. Semiconductor companies, using off-the-shelf or in-house custom boards that include Virtex-7 and other FPGAs, are already benefiting from Flexras’ latest development.
