FPGA-based ASIC/SoC prototyping system

September 17, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Leveraging Xilinx's Virtex-7 FPGA, Aldec’s HES-7 expands up to 96m ASIC gate capacity for hardware and software verification.

The HES-7 takes full advantage of the Xilinx Virtex-7 2000T 3D IC, which affords a design capacity of up to 24 million ASIC gates on a single, dual-device HES-7 board. In addition, the system employs a non-proprietary high-speed backplane connector that enables easy expansion of custom daughter boards or which can facilitate the connection of up to four HES-7 boards, delivering a total design capacity of up to 96 million ASIC gates.
