March 12, 2013 -- The DINI Group announces the availability of a new Xilinx Virtex-7 based, FPGA board with 28 million ASIC gates. New 2.5D stacked silicon from Xilinx provides more gates on a a single chip, making ASIC prototyping easier by eliminating the difficult task of partitioning. The DINI Group DNV7F2A board puts this new technology in an easy to use package that gets ASIC/SOC developers to market faster and more confident of their design's high speed performance.
DINI Group engineers put the features that ASIC/SOC developers need most, right on the board:
Stand-alone or 4-lane GEN2 PCIe via IPASS cable
- 10 GbE
- 5 independent global clock networks
- 1.4 Gigabit/second chip to chip LVDS
Two boards can be seamlessly linked together for up to 56 million ASIC gates, and a new rack mount chassis is available for better cooling and ruggedness.
“We made this new Virtex-7 board as versatile as possible.” says Mike Dini, president, “There is a Marvell ARM Processor, running Linux, for any custom interfaces you might need and plenty of power and cooling for high speed logic emulation. Software and firmware developers will appreciate the productivity gains that come with this low cost, stand-alone development platform.”
The DINI Group was established in 1995 as a consulting company. While developing ASICs for various clients they saw the need for cost effective logic emulation platforms and developed several of them. They are now the market leader in FPGA-based ASIC prototyping hardware and supply boards with up to twenty massive FPGAs with a capacity of more than 130 million gates. From their corporate campus in La Jolla, California, DINI Group employees have supplied over ten billion ASIC gates.
