S2C Inc. has revealed its plan to deliver its line-up of prototyping boards that support the latest in Xilinx's Virtex UltraScale 440 FPGA. The S2C Virtex UltraScale logic modules will offer twice the capacity, higher performance, and increased flexibility and expandability compared to previous versions, the company indicated.

Design teams can expect twice as many logic cells and block RAMs on a single board reaching up to 176M ASIC gates with a S2C's Quad offering. The ability to link 32 prototyping boards together will allow FPGA prototyping of designs reaching 1B ASIC gates. The increase in capacity will also be met with significant performance enhancements including double the performance and integration with up to a 50 per cent reduction in power consumption, 30 per cent improvements to transceiver bandwidth, a 2400Mb/s DDR4 interface, and integrated endpoint blocks for PCIe Gen3.

"Xilinx's next generation Virtex UltraScale devices are very powerful and S2C's customers will be able maximise that power with our advanced capabilities," said Toshio Nakama, CEO of S2C. "In addition to increased capacity and performance, our Virtex UltraScale Logic Modules will be linked to our complete suite of tools for optimised partitioning, algorithm exploration, multi-FPGA deep trace debug and remote management allowing our customers to meet their strict time-to-market schedules."

"S2C's prototyping technology is a great complement to the industry's largest 20nm FPGA, the Virtex UltraScale 440," said Hanneke Krekels, director of the test, measurement and emulation market segment at Xilinx. "Positioned to provide unprecedented levels of performance, system integration and bandwidth, VU440 customers will be able to leverage joint Xilinx and S2C technologies to prototype their latest large designs."
