Bringing its rapid prototyping and emulation systems to U.S. shores, ProDesign Electronic & CAD Layout GmbH has set up a U.S. subsidiary in Wilsonville, Oregon. The subsidiary, ProDesign Electronics Corp., markets prototyping systems ranging from 2 to 144 million FPGA gates.

ProDesign started out as a service bureau in 1981, and later developed a line of hardware-assisted verification products that it has been selling to European customers. Its CHIPit line of desktop prototyping platforms offers co-emulation with simulators, real-time intellectual property (IP) verification, and debugging capabilities.

The one-card CHIPit Power Edition serves up to 2 million FPGA gates, and has a 33MHz clock. The two-FPGA Gold Edition fits 12-16 million FPGA gates and has a 200MHz clock. The 200MHz Platinum Edition, which includes 3 to 18 FPGAs, extends this capacity as high as 144 million FPGA gates.

Prices range from under $8,000 for the Power Edition to under $250,000 for the 18-FPGA Platinum system. Replicants without development software are also available.

ProDesign Electronics Corp. has local offices in Santa Monica, Calif., and Austin, Texas.
