Enhanced TransLink using MCIO to provide numerous GTY connections up to 28 Gbps for scalable FPGA interconnect and flexible topologies
Built-in IP support for High Speed ââTransceiver Pin Multiplexing (HSTPM) to simplify pin multiplexing on GTY transceivers and maximize FPGA interconnection
Enterprise-class reliability with redundant power supplies and optimized cooling
SAN JOSE, California, November 2, 2021 / PRNewswire / – S2C, a global leader in FPGA-based prototyping solutions, today announced the launch of Logic Matrix LX2, designed to meet the demands of enterprise prototyping that requires both high capacity and high performance.
Built on the Virtex UltraScale + VU19P – Xilinx’s largest and fastest UltraScale + FPGA – the LX2 is ideal for verifying hardware and software components of hyperscale designs going into the billions of ASIC gates. Hold up 8 FPGA in a single enclosure, the LX2 can be used alone or deployed in a standard server rack with up to eight LX2s in total 64 FPGA. The system can be scaled even further by interconnecting the LX2s across multiple racks to create a platform that rivals the capacity of many emulation systems – with 10-20 times the speed.
Logic Matrix addresses high performance prototyping by providing a flexible connectivity architecture with 3 hierarchy levels: Short bridge with interconnection modules between neighboring FPGAs; Sys Link to connect FPGAs over high bandwidth cables, and TransLink for longer links between FPGA SerDes over MCIO cables. The LX2 takes TransLink to the next level with more abundant and faster SerDes connections. For each VU19P FPGA on the LX2, not only are 80 GTY SerDes available on 20 MCIO connectors to enable scalable interconnection, but MCIO connectors are tailored to support GTY up to 28 Gbps for reduced latency and performance. higher system. To further simplify the inter-FPGA link and maximize the value of TransLink, S2C’s partitioning flow supports Xilinx’s new High-Speed ââTransceiver Pin Multiplexing (HSTPM) IP address. Cycle-precise signal transfer, pinmuxing, and low-latency SerDes connectivity between FPGAs just got easier!
“Xilinx continues to innovate to meet the needs of the emulation and prototyping market, not only with silicon, but also with tools and IP addresses,” said Chris stinson, senior manager of test, measurement and emulation markets at Xilinx. âWe are delighted to see Xilinx UltraScale + VU19P adopted by S2C’s latest Logic Matrix LX2. LX2’s high-density VU19P octal architecture and SerDes rich implementation, along with IP HSTPM, combine to make LX2 a high-performance, highly-scalable prototyping platform. “
Built for high reliability and rugged operation, the LX2 addresses enterprise-class considerations, including real-time system monitors, efficient cooling, and hot-pluggable redundant power supplies. The logic matrix is ââalso delivered with the S2Cs Player Pro runtime software, a built-in tool offering convenient features such as advanced clock management, built-in self-test, automatic board detection, I / O voltage programming, multiple FPGA downloads, and monitoring and management remote from the system. Also included is AXEVision, a built-in AXI-over-Ethernet debugging tool to simplify remote debugging of AXI-related designs. For advanced debugging, the LX2 supports S2C’s MDM Pro, an add-on that provides in-depth trace debugging and cross-triggering for up to eight FPGAs.
âToday’s hyperscale designs now go into the billions of ASIC gates,â said Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C. âThese complex designs are demanding – and they demand a powerful, scalable and robust FPGA prototyping platform. LX2 combines Xilinx’s largest FPGA available with an architecture designed for interconnect optimization. Combined with enterprise-class design and productivity tools, the result is an unmatched ability to deliver both performance and scalability and shorten the verification cycle. With LX2, there is no compromise. “
