It should come as no surprise that S2C would step out in front with a high-density FPGA prototyping hardware platform for users who would like to scale to large numbers of FPGAs and high performance. That’s exactly what they have done with their new Prodigy Logic Matrix family of FPGA prototyping products that S2C announced in December. … Read More

I was reading the S2C press release announcing their new FPGA prototyping platform based on the Xilinx UltraScale+ VU19P FPGA, and how the new FPGA will accelerate billion gate FPGA prototyping, and I was struck by the stunning implications of this announcement. Not that billion gate SoC designs can now be prototyped with FPGAs,… Read More
In 2016 SemiWiki published a book “Prototypical: The Emergence of FPGA-Based Prototyping for SoC Design”. Today we are writing Prototypical II since a LOT of prototyping innovation has happened in the last four years, absolutely.
S2C has been developing FPGA prototyping platforms since 2003, and, over time, their FPGA prototyping platforms have supported increasingly larger more sophisticated FPGA prototyping projects with three key attributes; 1) scalable prototyping gate capacities, 2) a high-speed interface between the FPGA prototype and software… Read More
The next generation FPGAs have been announced, and they are BIG! Intel is shipping its Stratix 10 GX 10M FPGA, and Xilinx has announced its VU19P FPGA for general availability in the Fall of next year. The former is expected to support about 80M ASIC gates, and the latter about 50M ASIC gates. And, to bring this mind-boggling gate… Read More
In 2016 we published our book “Prototypical: The Emergence of FPGA-Based Prototyping for SoC Design” which began an incredible journey through ASIC prototyping. While we are working on an update to that book there is some recent Prototyping news that is worthy of praise.
First and foremost, S2C Inc. has just announced THE single… Read More
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with a chip designer for an AI start-up to talk about using FPGA prototyping as part of a complex silicon verification strategy. Like countless other chip designers for whom simulation alone simply does not provide sufficient verification coverage, this AI start-up also believed that… Read More
If you are considering an FPGA prototype for an ASIC or SoC as part of your verification strategy, which more and more chip designers today are doing to enhance verification coverage of complex designs, please take advantage of this webinar replay:
Or to get a quick quote from S2C … Read More
I came across a report on the 100 most promising AI start-ups. The report claimed that CBInsights had “selected the 100 most promising AI start-ups from a pool of 3K+ companies based on several factors …” Wait, what … 3K+ companies!?!? This was a stunning reminder of the sheer magnitude of what is shaping up to be a veritable tsunami… Read More
I recently wrote about The Implications of the Rise of AI/ML in the Cloud. In that article, I wrote about my expectation that the rapidly growing AI market will lead to the accelerated use of high-level synthesis (HLS), prototyping, and emulation. In this article, I will focus on the prototyping portion of that – specifically FPGA… Read More
