Tokyo Electron Device Limited (TED) introduced the TB-7V-2000T-LSI ASIC development test platform. The inrevium TB-7V-2000T-LSI features a Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA. The TB-7V-2000T-LSI makes it possible to perform emulation and prototyping of large SoCs using a single FPGA instead of the multiple chips required in the past. The TB-7V-2000T-LSI ASIC development test platform can be ordered today. The tool will be begin shipping in early December 2012.
The ASIC development test platform includes five high-speed I/O connectors and a Kintex-7 325T expansion FPGA for the addition of daughter interface cards, control logic, and other additional functions as needed. Use of a single FPGA results in faster processing. It also improves development efficiency by reducing the time required for implementation when a design is split into multiple parts.
The TB-7V-2000T-LSI can be used to configure a prototyping platform with excellent expandability and enhanced flexibility. When used in conjunction with the reference designs provided for the USB and PCI Express interfaces, emulation can include high-speed external control of the SoC logic. It is also possible to perform testing under actual operating conditions at faster clock frequencies than in the past.
The inrevium TB-7V-2000T-LSI features high-speed memory (DDR3 SDRAM 1600 Mbps), USB 2.0/3.0, DVI input and output, and PCI Express). The TB-7V-2000T-LSI is an ideal test platform for a wide range of different ASIC developments, including SoCs for next-generation image processing, audio/video multimedia, and high-speed communication control.
