Aldec Adds ARM Cortex-A9 Support to HES-7 ASIC Prototyping Platform

Essential SoC Peripherals

New SoC Peripherals provide designers the ability to interface real-world stimuli to the design-under-test (DUT) on the HES-7 ASIC prototyping platform. Users can utilize gigabit Ethernet transceivers to develop networking applications, WLAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth® v2.1 to develop wireless systems, or High Performance HDMI Transmitter to develop home entertainment products. Memories and connectors provide additional data storage for read/write capability of today’s popular memory interfaces, and the ability to connect external hardware with the HES-7.

Availability

HES-7 with ARM Cortex-A9 support is available today with an industry-leading 1-year limited warranty. All current HES-7 customers with a dual-FPGA configuration will be provided the enhanced ARM Cortex-A9 daughterboard support with additional peripherals at no additional cost. Customers with single-FPGA HES-7 will receive the essential SoC peripherals daughterboard at no additional cost.
