ASIC prototyping company HARDI Electronics has released a new ASIC prototyping motherboard with multi-gigabit serial links, embedded powerpc processors and over 1,600 pairs of LVDS signals.

HARDI's new HAPS 20 board can be used as a stand-alone device to prototype ASIC designs up to 4 million gates and can be stacked with other HAPS 20 or HARDI boards for greater capacity.

The board uses four Xilinx Virtex-II Pro XC2VP70/100s, offering 80 multigigabit serial links, 8 embedded PowerPC processors and over 3,000 user I/Os, HARDI said.

All I/Os on the board can be used in differential mode (LVDS), enabling a long distance drive capability at transmission rates exceeding 800Mbps per channel, the company said.

I/Os are divided into three groups with separate power. This, according to the company, means that three different I/O voltages can be used at the same time.

Programming is carried out via a standard JTAG interface or from a CompactFlash memory, the company said.

Pricing for the HAPS 20 starts at $41,900.
