Reflex CES Enters Mainstream FPGA-Prototyping Market; Offers 25-Million Gates or More ASIC Prototyping Platform With Partitioning Software

Collaboration With FPGA Partitioning and Verification Software Providers Addresses Demand for Reliable, Cost-Effective Verification of Complex, High Density Designs

PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- Reflex CES, a provider of custom embedded and complex systems, today introduced FPP25, a fast ASIC/SOC prototyping platform for emulating designs of up to 25-million ASIC gates using a stand-alone system. Based on Xilinx Virtex-7 2000T FPGAs, FPP25 exploits Reflex CES' collaboration with Flexras, an EDA company specializing in FPGA design partitioning software, and Adacsys, a functional verification software provider, to offer design engineers an easy-to-use, next generation platform to speed up validation and verification of complex, high density digital designs.

FPP25 will be showcased at Embedded World 2013, Nuremberg, Germany, February, 26-28, Hall 1, Booth 1-103.

"The FPP25 is the result of combining Reflex CES's expertise in the design of complex electronic boards and Xilinx's industry-leading Virtex-7 All Programmable FPGAs, reflecting the strong relationship between Reflex CES and Xilinx," said Giles Peckham, EMEA Director of Marketing, Xilinx.

"Our collaboration with established software suppliers like Flexras and Adacsys and our expertise and experience developing circuit boards using FPGAs and high speed interfaces allows us to confidently enter the mainstream FPGA-based prototyping market with a solution that improves the verification of ASICs and SOCs, their associated IP cores and applications software," noted Sylvain Neveu, Reflex CES co-founder and COO.

FPP25 integrates Flexras Wasga automatic partitioning design suite offering high performance partitioning, timing analysis and high-speed pin-multiplexing solutions to improve design productivity. The Reflex CES FPP25 prototyping platform can optionally add Adacsys AVA (Advanced Verification Acceleration) software for advanced verification as well as Xilinx Vivado™ Design Suite and Xilinx ChipScope debugging tools.

The FPP25 prototyping platform operates with a GbE interface, a USB interface or a 4-lane PCIe cable (GEN2). A single FPP25 platform can emulate up to 25-million ASIC gates using three high density Virtex-7 FPGAs (two XC7V2000Ts and one XC7VX485T) that are 100% available to user applications. Each Virtex-7 2000T FPGA intercommunicates by nearly 400 LVDS signals at 1.25Gbps. An onboard CPU with an embedded Linux operating system is implemented to handle the configuration and monitoring functions. FPP25 platforms can be chained together (up to 5 platforms) to address high density designs of over 125 million ASIC gates.

Availability
FPP25 prototyping platforms are now available from Reflex CES with reference designs, a user's guide, and the Flexras Wasga automatic partitioning software. Adacsys AVA software for design verification is available as an option. For pricing information, please contact [email protected].

Personalization has long been the holy grail of marketing. Simply stated, communicate the most relevant offer to the right person and you will increase sales. To achieve this, you must understand the individual. Consequently, digital marketers developed many ways to gather and leverage customer information to deliver targeted experiences. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lou Casal, Founder and Principal Consultant at Practicala, discussed how the Internet of Things (IoT) has accelerated our abil...
With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
The emerging Internet of Everything creates tremendous new opportunities for customer engagement and business model innovation. However, enterprises must overcome a number of critical challenges to bring these new solutions to market. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Martin, CTO/CIO at nfrastructure, outlined these key challenges and recommended approaches for overcoming them to achieve speed and agility in the design, development and implementation of Internet of Everything solutions wi...

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long dev...
Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.
Is the ongoing quest for agility in the data center forcing you to evaluate how to be a part of infrastructure automation efforts? As organizations evolve toward bimodal IT operations, they are embracing new service delivery models and leveraging virtualization to increase infrastructure agility. Therefore, the network must evolve in parallel to become equally agile. Read this essential piece of Gartner research for recommendations on achieving greater agility.
Smart Cities are here to stay, but for their promise to be delivered, the data they produce must not be put in new siloes. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mathias Herberts, Co-founder and CTO of Cityzen Data, will deep dive into best practices that will ensure a successful smart city journey.
