First Silicon Solutions' (FS2) Configurable Logic Analyzer Module (CLAM) System performs real-time logic analysis of designs using Actel Corp.'s Flash-based ProASIC and ProASIC Plus FPGAs.

In addition to the traditional internal on-chip option, the module also offers off-chip trace and triggering support, allowing users to reduce the time required to debug the system while minimizing the use of system gate resources and available device pins.

Embedded in the Actel device, the CLAM System consists of FS2's On-Chip Instrumentation IP, a hardware probe for communications with the FPGA target, and Windows-based control and display software. The IP is configurable with trigger and trace resources, offering a large number of options, including configuration for either on-chip or off-chip trace and triggering.

The solution allows the user to select up to 128 internal nodes for analysis at compile time. During run-time, the user is able to view trace and specify trigger conditions on up to 32 channels, or nodes.

Pricing begins at $2,495 for the on-chip version and $3,495 for the system with off-chip trace support.
