GiDEL, a supplier of FPGA-based compute accelerator systems, has announced that its new PROCStarIII family of products is now available based on what they say is the world's largest capacity and fastest FPGAthe Stratix III 340L from Altera. With four such FPGA devices, pipelined SoC designs up to 12 million ASIC gates in size can be prototyped and verified. Multiple PROCStarIII systems can be combined for verifying even larger designs.

Key Features of the PROCStarIII include:

? 1-4 Stratix III 80E, 110E, 260E, 150L or 340L FPGAs

? 8 lanes of PCIe for 2 GBps bandwidth host communications

? 8 SODIMM slots for up to 16Gbyte of on board memory

? 256Mbyte DDR2 memory per FPGA (1Gbyte DDR2 max.)

? 1G Ethernet host communications

? Support for up to five application specific PROC daughter cardsCameraLink, DVI, GbE

? Typical system clock speeds of 150-350MHz

? High-performance system-to-system interconnection

? Standalone operation

The folks at GiDEL say that their PROCWizard Software and available integrated third party applications provide an easy-to-use environment for design partitioning, FPGA implementation and design debug.

The system's Stratix III FPGAs can also provide reconfigurable hardware implementation of complex algorithms to deliver embedded application-specific processing acceleration. A broad range of Stratix III FPGAs are available to match the computational capacity and speed of the system to user's requirements. The PROCStarIII is CameraLink registered as a Frame Grabber and Image Processing product, like its sister products, the PROCStarII, PROCSparkII and PROCe systems.

Configurations and pricing can be obtained by contacting GiDEL.
