ViShare Technology, a fabless semiconductor company focusing on video codec, developed a chip for 8K60 video streaming with the help of S2C FPGA-based prototyping solution. This solution enables ViShare to accelerate its verification process and time-to-market by 6 months.
Since its establishment in 2012, ViShare has been… Read More
The RISC-V movement has taken off so quickly because of the wide range of choices it offers designers. However, massive flexibility creates its own challenges. One is how to analyze, optimize, and verify an unproven RISC-V core design with potential microarchitecture changes allowed within the bounds of the specification. … Read More
S2C has been shipping FPGA prototyping platforms for SoC verification for almost two decades, and many of its customers are developing SoCs and silicon IP for Bluetooth applications. Prototyping Bluetooth designs before silicon has yielded improved design efficiencies through more comprehensive system validation, and… Read More
The differences between commercial FPGA Prototyping (“Prototyping”) and Emulation have been well documented by the purveyors of commercial Prototyping and Emulation solutions, and the technical media. What has received less coverage is how Prototyping benefits differ from Emulation benefits. Both are intended to reduce… Read More
S2C’s Shines at DAC 2022 with its New Prodigy Player Pro-7 Prototyping Software, Multi-FPGA Prototype Hardware Platforms, and Complete Prototyping Solutions
The 59th Design Automation Conference returned to San Francisco’s Moscone Center this year to notch almost six decades of week-long immersion in EDA technology and … Read More
S2C EDA recently released a whitepaper written by a good friend of mine Steve Walters. Steve and I have worked together many times throughout our careers and I consider him to be one of my trusted few, especially in regards to prototyping and emulation. Steve is also my co author on the book “Prototypical II The Practice of FPGA-Based… Read More
My beautiful first mate and I will be together at DAC this year. Her first DAC was 1985 in Las Vegas and we lived happily ever after. SemiWiki bloggers Tom Dillinger and Daniel Payne will also be at DAC attending sessions and meeting with exhibiting companies to learn and blog about the latest innovations inside the semiconductor … Read More
S2C has been a global leader in FPGA prototyping for nearly two decades now, and its FPGA prototyping platforms have closely tracked the availability of the latest FPGAs – including the latest FPGAs from both Xilinx and Intel. And they are definitely delivering on the promise to advance their prototyping solutions for hyperscale… Read More
Using FPGAs to prototype and debug SoCs as part of the SoC design verification hierarchy was pioneered by Quickturn Design Systems in the late 1980’s, and I have observed a wide variety of FPGA prototyping projects over the years. In retrospect, three factors have determined the success of the FPGA prototyping project;
- A good
