Pro Design Launches Next Generation of CHIPit ASIC Prototyping Systems

MUNICH, Germany & SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 14, 2007— Pro Design, a leading supplier of high-speed ASIC and SoC verification platforms, today announced the launch of its CHIPit V5 series, the next generation of its successful CHIPit product family. The new generation of CHIPit High-Speed ASIC Prototyping Systems is based on the largest FPGA on the market, the Xilinx Virtex-5 LX330. It offers the highest flexibility, better performance, and larger capacity, all in the most effective ASIC Prototyping system ever.

The CHIPit Copper Edition V5, the first member of the next CHIPit V5 generation, is aimed at customers who need flexibility in a cost-effective high-speed verification solution. Like all CHIPit products, the new release shortens the time to market dramatically by eliminating costly respins and providing early prototypes for software development or end customers.

The system is very flexible, scalable and is available with 1 to 6 Xilinx Virtex-5 LX330 FPGAs. Depending on the configuration, the system handles ASIC design capacities up to 8 M ASIC gates. It is equipped with up to 8 extension board sections with up to 2580 free user I/Os to adapt to additional standard CHIPit or user specific extension boards. The board also offers up to 4 SO-DIMM card slots and optional on-board SSRAM memories. The system can run stand-alone and is easily configured by software with an SD card or the Ethernet interface.

"Our new CHIPit Copper Edition V5 provides many significant new features. In addition to the higher number of I/Os, the larger capacity, and better performance, we also significantly improved our software capabilities in design, system handling and debugging environment. With this new CHIPit generation we are providing users the most elegant and easy to use ASIC Prototyping system on the market today," said Gunnar Scholl, Director Marketing and Business Development of ProDesign.

The first public presentation of CHIPit Copper Edition V5 will be held in booth #6678 during the Design Automation Conference (DAC) 2007 June 04 - 08 in San Diego, CA.


CHIPit Copper Edition V5 will be available end of May 2007.
