S2C Prodigy™ Cloud Cube™ Enables FPGA Prototyping of 1 Billion Gate Designs
Leading-Edge System Supports up to 32 FPGAs that Can Be Shared Among Multiple Users
S2C, Inc., a leading provider of FPGA-based rapid prototyping solutions, introduces the Prodigy™ Cloud Cube™, an enterprise-class, FPGA-based prototyping system. Cloud Cube can hold up to 32 FPGAs with a capacity of up to 1.4 billion gates in a single chassis that provides power, cooling, and remote control capabilities. The Cloud Cube system works with the entire Prodigy Complete Prototyping Platform, including: Prodigy Player Pro™ for partitioning, Prodigy ProtoBridge™ for linking FPGA prototypes to system-level simulation, and S2C’s library of 80+ Prodigy Prototype Ready™ daughter cards.
“Our Prodigy Cloud Cube system allows engineering teams to take a huge leap forward in prototyping their largest and most ambitious designs,” commented Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C, Inc. “This advanced technology offers the freedom and flexibility to simultaneously manage a large group of geographically dispersed developers utilizing different Prodigy Logic Modules. The result is a dramatic cost savings and greatly accelerated time-to-market.”
Prodigy Cloud Cube
Cloud Cube provides unprecedented capacity and scalability with support of up to 32 FPGAs using a combination of Quad, Dual, or Single Prodigy Logic Modules. 16 engineers can simultaneously use any of the Logic Modules in a Cloud Cube with remote access through Ethernet. Different designs or multiple instances of the same design can run concurrently in a Cloud Cube. This powerful chassis system features:
- Auto recognition of Prodigy Logic Modules
- Auto detection of interconnection/cable setup between Logic Modules in a Cloud Cube
- Auto detection of daughter cards installed on Logic Modules
- 6 global clock sources to all Logic Modules with less than 200ps skew
- Power On/Off/Recycle of individual Logic Modules
- Unique tray design for easily mounting Logic Modules & daughter cards
- Transparent and removable windows for easy access and monitoring
- Flexible cable connections between slots on both sides
- Access to each Logic Module directly or through a network switch
- Runtime software for controlling and monitoring the Cloud Cube
- Self-tests to quickly isolate design problems from hardware or connection issues
“The addition of the Cloud Cube to our Prodigy Prototyping Platform helps fulfill our commitment to providing designers with a complete prototyping platform,” added Toshio Nakama. “We’ll be extending this platform to include powerful cloud-based management software and multi-FPGA debug capabilities in the near future.”
Prodigy Cloud Cube can be seen in action in the S2C booth #3108 at the 2015 Design Automation Conference (DAC) at Moscone Center in San Francisco from June 8-10.
