S2C Releases New Prototype Ready™ ARM11 and ARM9 Modules for FPGA-Based Prototypes

Delivering a Straightforward Prototyping Environment Using ARM Test Chips from GUC

San Jose, CA – Jun 1st2012  S2C today announced that it has added ARM1176 and ARM926 GUC test chip modules to the comprehensive family of Prototype Readyaccessories used to create FPGA-based prototypes and to interface FPGA-based prototype boards to the user’s target operating environment. The 2 new ARM test chip modules can be used with all S2C SoC/ASIC prototyping hardware including Virtex-7 TAI Logic ModulesStratix-4 TAI Logic ModulesStratix-4 TAI Verification modulesVirtex-6 TAI Logic Modules and Virtex-6 TAI Verification Modules.  The ARM test chips are supplied by Global Unichip Corp. (GUC), the Flexible ASIC Leader™The two new modules are available to all GUC customers.      

Mon-Ren Chene, S2C’s Chairman and CTO said, Many of our customers complained that they had reached limitations mapping ARM cores in FPGAs or using other external ARM solutions for building their SoC prototypes and wanted to see a more straightforward solution.  As a result, we have partnered with GUC to supply a straightforward solution using GUC’s ARM1176 and ARM926 test chips with the AMBA bus interfaces brought out directly on the test chip I/O.  These new test chip modules simplify the integration of ARM coreswith rest of SoC on a FPGA prototype; providing a high performance solution.”

Availability

The ARM1176 and ARM926 GUC Test Chip Modules are available today for GUC customers worldwide.  Contact your local S2C sales office for more information.

Please visit us at DAC in San Francisco from June 4 to June 6 to see these new products.

About S2C

Founded and headquartered in San Jose, California, S2C has been successfully delivering rapid SoC prototyping solutions since 2003. S2C provides:

  • Rapid FPGA-based SoC prototyping hardware and automation software
  • Prototype Ready™ IP, Platforms, and Accessories
  • System-level design verification and acceleration

S2C's value is our singular focus on SoC/ASIC development. Our highly qualified engineering team and customer-focused sales force understands our customers’ SoC development needs. S2C’s unique FPGA-based solution, using our patented TAI IP technology, enables designers to quickly assemble FPGA-based SoC prototypes on S2C FPGA boards. This gives customers an early start on software development, typically the long pole item in development schedules. Combining rapid prototyping methodologies with a comprehensive portfolio of Prototype Ready IP and advanced verification and acceleration solutions, S2C solutions greatly reduces the SoC design cycle.

In addition to the headquarters in San Jose, CA, S2C currently has 4 direct offices located in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen China and HsinChu, Taiwan. S2C is also the organizer of the annual SoCIP conference and exhibition in China, which brings SoC designers from the Asia-Pacific region together with international silicon IP and SoC solution vendors.
