S2C Inc. will showcase 11 new accessory modules for its TAI logic module products, rapid SoC prototyping systems based on Xilinx FPGA, at the SoCIP 2008 Seminar & Exhibition this week in Beijing and Shanghai.

The newly released 11 TAI logic accessories modules include TV encoder, TV decoder, audio interface, RISC32 Testchip, 256Mbyte DDR on SO-DIMM, 2-channel 128Mbyte DDR on SO-DIMM, multifunctional memory, MS/SD/XD Interface, CompactFlash/smart media interface, Ethernet PHY interface and GPIO interface. The addition of these new accessory modules will enable both existing and new TAI logic module users to further speed up prototyping of their SoC by reducing the needs to develop custom application boards for testing with their target systems.

"The new TAI logic accessory modules work out-of-box with the S2C's latest generation Virtex-5 TAI logic module series, which are equipped with either single or dual Xilinx LX series Virtex-5 FPGAs, with up to a 6.6 million ASIC gates of capacity. The Virtex-5 TAI Logic Modules are exceptionally flexible with up to 1320 external IO for interfacing to targets and Multiple TAI Logic Modules can be stacked for additional logic capacity," said Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C. "When building SoC prototypes on FPGA, designers simply choose the TAI logic modules that fit their design capacities and then select the interface modules that fit their applications from the wide library of TAI logic accessory modules. With the addition of the 11 new accessory modules, customers now have over 20 different accessory modules to choose from to effortlessly put together SoC prototypes on FPGA without having to build custom target boards."

A number of the new TAI logic accessory modules are suitable for multimedia applications. The TV decoder module provides TV decoding from analog inputs and outputs various digital formats such as 411 YUV, 422 YUV, 565 RGB and 888 RGB. The TV encoder module enables user designs in TAI logic modules to output a number of video standards, such as DB-15 VGA, S-Video, CSVB and YCbCr, and watch the quality of user design on a real TV. The audio interface module enables designers to interface to either AC-97 or I2S controlled audio devices with microphone, headphone, line-in and line-out ports. Finally, TAI logic modules users now have out-of-box access to almost all popular memory formats such as SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, SRAM, CompactFlash, memory stick, smart media and SDIO.
