Extreme visibility at speed into FPGA prototypes.
FPGA Prototyping is a key strategic approach to check ASIC hardware and speed up SoC software development when the silicon is not available yet.
Interconnected FPGAs on a board provide the number of gates required to map a complex ASIC and start develop software with some ability to troubleshoot the hardware – most of the time at the expense of the operating frequency, that is reduced to allow partitioning.
At all stages of this process, deep trace debug captures are necessary to navigate complex silicon and make the most of the ASIC validation time. Unfortunately, generic tools (think JTAG) usually provide poor visibility, whereas prototyping platform vendors’tools only work well with their specific platform and cannot be used in any environment or at speed with any board.
Exostiv Labs’ solutions provide deep *gigabyte-range* capture capability at speed of operation from any FPGA board or FPGA prototyping system, thereby providing extreme visibility into all ASIC and SoC prototyping setups.
Combining large external memories and FPGA high-speed transceivers with a highly configurable IP, our solutions allow streaming massive traces from inside the FPGA prototyping system(s) used throughout the ASIC or SoC validation process.
Run multiple concurrent FPGA prototypes
Duplicating prototyping setup and running parallel concurrent tests are the key to augmenting the test density and coverage*
With Exostiv Blade series, you are able to set up a central appliance to capture massive traces from multiple FPGA prototypes. Our solutions adapt to any FPGA board and provides advanced Python scripting for automation and usage with your continuous integration (CI) system.
Manage your prototyping assets and have massive FPGA visibility enterprise-wide.
