GiDEL platform with Altera FPGA

Altera Corp. and GiDEL Ltd introduced the PROCSpark II development platform featuring Altera's low-cost Cyclone II FPGAs. Designed for FPGA-based reconfigurable computing, the PROCSpark II system delivers reduced costs, high flexibility, shorter development times, and enhanced reliability for complex designs, according to the two companies.

"Altera's industry-leading low-cost Cyclone II FPGAs enable PROCSpark II to address our customers' complex development needs," said Reuven Weintraub, president and CTO of GiDEL. "PROCSpark II's cost and performance is enhanced by GiDEL's unique development tools, making it fast and easy to achieve record-breaking performance for cost-sensitive applications."

The PROCSpark II platform features a Cyclone II EP2C35 device, a PCI bus, 64MB of DRAM, and expansion connectors for up to two daughtercards in the PROCStar II daughterboard (PSDB) format. The Cyclone II EP2C35 device provides up to 33,216 logic elements (LEs), 35 embedded multipliers, and over 483Kb of on-chip RAM. The PCI bus allows for data transfers up to 400Mbps, while the PSDBs provide expansion possibilities, including CameraLink, digital video interface (DVI), RGB, digital signal processing (DSP) processors, memory, or additional custom made system interfaces. These features, said the press release, combine to make PROCSpark II a powerful and versatile reconfigurable computing platform for high-volume applications.

The PROCSpark II platform can also be combined with GiDEL's PROCPak II development suite for improved time-to-market benefits. The PROCPak II development suite contains the PROCSpark II board, software and intellectual property (IP), allowing designers to focus on their designs instead of spending time re-creating standard design components, explained GiDEL.

Additional information on the PROCStar II board can be found online.
