ProDesign CHIPit Platinum V4 Sets Standard for High-Speed Verification; Second Generation of High-End ASIC Prototyping System Based on Latest Virtex 4 FPGA Technology

MUNICH, Germany & SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Jan. 23, 2006— ProDesign today released the latest version of CHIPit(R) Platinum featuring an enhanced system architecture based on latest Xilinx Virtex4 FPGA technology, new debugging features and new software for system design implementation.

CHIPit Platinum V4 is the industry's first ASIC prototyping system to handle up to 21 Xilinx Virtex4 FPGAs with a flexible programmable connection topology for a large number of different configurations. This scalable system can be configured with 3 to 21 Xilinx Virtex4 FPGAs (XC4VLX100/160/200) for designs from 2.3-20 million ASIC gates.

A patented 3D switching technology allows for architectural trade-off optimizations with different design structures of the SoC design to achieve highest performance up to 200MHz. As soon as more than two FPGAs are necessary for verification, the system's connection topology can be changed in software at any time -- which is a vital requirement with regard to the re-usability of the system for other projects.

CHIPit Platinum V4 features new debugging capabilities including host-controlled and separate interfaces as well as an enhanced debugging and system handling software package. CHIPit Platinum V4 gives ASIC & SoC design and verification engineers unprecedented speed and flexibility to validate algorithm performance and to verify and debug their ASIC designs. This very cost-effective and flexible solution for all stages of hardware-assisted verification shortens the time to market by eliminating costly respins and by providing an early prototype for the software development.

Availability

CHIPit Platinum V4 is available immediately.
