The proFPGA product family is a complete, scalable, and modular multi FPGA Prototyping solution, which fulfills highest needs in the area of FPGA based ASIC Prototyping. A new member of this modular and flexible system concept is the proFPGA ZynqTM 7000 FPGA module, which can be easily mounted on the proFPGA uno, duo or quad motherboard and mixed together with various other proFPGA modules like the proFPGA Virtex 7 2000T FPGA module. The proFPGA ZynqTM 7000 FPGA module addresses customers who require a complete embedded processing platform for high performance SoC Prototyping solution, IP verification and early software development. The innovative system concept and technologies offer highest flexibility and reuseability for several projects, which guarantees the best return on invest.

Equipped with a Xilinx ZynqTM XC7Z045 or XC7Z100 FPGA which combines a user FPGA with an ARM Core Processor (Dual ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ with CoreSight™) and several on board interfaces like USB 2.0 OTG, Gigabit Ethernet or ARM JTAG debug interface the Board offers a complete embedded processing platform. The board includes already 1 GB on board DDR3 and dual quad SPI flash memory.

Most of todays SoC designs contain an ARM processor. Instead of implementing the ARM core into a FPGA and occupying important FPGA resources the user can take the proFPGA ZynqTM module which has already an embedded ARM processor with verified interfaces like USB 2.0, OTG or Gigabit Ethernet and memories. Further the FPGA module offers a direct ARM debug interface that you user can benefit and use the proven ARM debug environment in combination with the proFPGA prototyping system and can focus on the verification of his design.

The new proFPGA ZynqTM module offers a total of 2 extension sites on the top with 260 standard I/Os and 16 high speed serial transceivers for extending the board with standard proFPGA or user specific extension boards or to easily interconnect it to further proFPGA FPGA modules to extend the capacity. The well designed board is optimized and trimmed to guarantee best signal integrity to achieve highest performance and allow a maximum point to point speed of up to 1.2 Gbps over the standard FPGA I/O and up to 12.5 Gbps over the high speed serial transceivers.

The proFPGA-System comes with the proFPGA Builder software, which provides an extensive set of features, like an advanced clock management, integrated self- and performance test, automatic board detection, I/O voltage programming, system scan- and safety mechanism and remote system configuration in seconds via USB, or Ethernet which extraordinarily simplifies the usage of the proFPGA system.

“We are proud of the success we have achieved with our proFPGA product line so far. We released the product just the end of 2012 and were able to win already over 30 semiconductor vendor in 10 different countries. This confirms that the customers accept and like our modular system concept, which offers a great degree of flexibility while still providing the high system performance. The new proFPGA ZynqTM 7000 FPGA module extends our product portfolio and now even more users can benefit from our proFPGA solution for further applications”, said Gunnar Scholl, CEO of PRO DESIGN.

Availability and Price

The proFPGA ZynqTM 7000 FPGA Module is available since October and price starts at US$ 8.600,-
