Logic Matrix

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


Prototyping with the Latest and Greatest Xilinx FPGAs

Prototyping with the Latest and Greatest Xilinx FPGAs

Prototyping with the Latest and Greatest Xilinx FPGAs

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


S2C Announces 300 Million Gate Prototyping System with Intel® Stratix® 10 GX 10M FPGAs

S2C Delivers FPGA Prototyping Solutions with the Industry’s Highest Capacity FPGA from Intel!
by Daniel Nenni on 11-19-2019 at 6:00 am

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


AI Chip Prototyping Plan

AI Chip Prototyping Plan
by Daniel Nenni on 09-10-2019 at 6:00 am

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
