FPGA Prototyping Becomes Even More Precise with Latest Additions to S2C's World-Class Prodigy(TM) Prototype Ready(TM) Interface Library

8 New Modules Give Designers Ability to Focus Development to Achieve Greater Product Differentiation and Faster Time-to-Market

SAN JOSE, Calif. - S2C Inc., a worldwide leader of FPGA-based prototyping solutions for today's innovative designs, announced today the addition of 8 new Prototype Ready interface cards and accessories to its extensive library of over 90 pre-engineered hardware and software components aimed at accelerating the development of SoC prototypes. These new modules enable users to prototype SoC designs with a variety of interfaces and work out-of-box with S2C's comprehensive family of Logic Modules. These pre-engineered solutions enable users to focus on SoC prototype development and product differentiation to gain an edge in today's competitive markets.

"We pride ourselves on giving our users the tools they need to be successful in their prototyping endeavors and to get a jump on their competition," said Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C. "We are always expanding our comprehensive library of Prodigy interfaces and accessories so that users can feel confident about getting the hardware they need for their specific design requirements."

The newly released Prodigy Prototype Ready Interfaces include:

SFP + GT Module used for Datacom Telcom applications providing high transmission speed (10Gbit/s Ethernet application) and small physical size

SATA GT Module used on SATA HDD applications supports the SATA3.0 standard and provides two SATA hosts and two SATA devices providing data transmission speeds of up to 6Gbit/s

Processor Peripheral Module used for Processor-based SoC development.  The abundant peripherals features (onboard NAND, NOR and SPI Flash for boot code storing, ARM JTAG & ARM ETM Debugger trace for system debugging) allow users to quickly build their verification environment.

3 Channel GMII PHY Interface Module that supports the GMII interface and is 10/100/1000 BASE-T IEEE 802.3 compliant

Prodigy to FMC-LPC Converter Module to convert a Prodigy I/O Connector to a FMC-LPC I/O connector

Prodigy to FMC-HPC Converter Module that converts two Prodigy I/O Connectors to a FMC-HPC & FMC-LPC I/O connector

HT3 Prodigy Converter Module that converts a Prodigy I/O Connector to 3 HT3 I/O connectors

Prodigy Connector Spacer Module to add approximately 17.5mm of height between a Prodigy Socket and a Prodigy Mezzanine Connector
