The HAPS-51T, a new addition to the HAPS (high-performance ASIC prototyping system) product family, leverages Xilinx's Virtex-5 LX330T devices to embody a suitable prototyping system for applications using high-speed serial interfaces like PCI Express, SATA, and Gigabit Ethernet. The HAPS-51T utilizes the LX330T device's 24 RocketIO GTP transceivers, adding on-board DDR2 memory and the new HapsTrak high-speed daughterboard connectivity scheme in a compact form factor.
The tight connection between the Virtex-5 LX330T FPGA and the on-board memory enables flexible, high-speed memory access to satisfy even demanding communication applications, according to Xilinx. The HAPS-51T's on-board memory includes:
- 1GByte of DDR2, expandable to 8 GByte
- 2 Mbit x 36 bit synchronous SRAM
- 32 Mbit x 16-bit Flash PROM
Like all HAPS systems, the HAPS-51T is equipped with programmable clock generators, sophisticated monitoring and self-test features, and remote configuration and setup capabilities. Other integrated peripherals include a USB data port, SelectMAP, and JTAG.
Shipments of HAPS-51T for early adopters have already begun. Full production shipment of the HAPS-51T is currently expected to begin at the end of June 2008. Contact Synopsys directly for pricing and delivery details.
