Aldec Verifies Compatibility of Northwest Logic’s PCI Express Cores with HES-7™ SoC/ASIC Prototyping Platform

Henderson, Nevada – July 11, 2013 –  Aldec, Inc., a pioneer in mixed HDL language simulation and hardware-assisted verification solutions, today announced that engineers incorporating high-speed PCI Express data transmission into their SoC and ASIC designs can accelerate their time-to-market utilizing  Northwest Logic PCI Express IP Cores with Aldec’s HES-7™ prototyping platform.

“Northwest Logic’s PCI Express IP cores enable designers to quickly create PCI Express-based SoC designs for a variety of markets including embedded applications, server development, communications, and more,” said Aldec HES-7 product engineer, Bill Tomas, “The combination of Northwest Logic’s pre-verified PCI Express IP Cores with the high-speed capabilities of the HES-7 enables design teams to reduce system verification time and the risks of silicon re-spins”.

The  HES-7 SoC/ASIC Prototyping Platform is a scalable FPGA-based solution for hardware and software teams developing SoC and ASIC designs up to 96 million ASIC gates. Utilizing the latest in FPGA technology with the Xilinx® Virtex®-7 family and Zynq™ SoC, HES-7 provides support for ARM® Cortex™-based designs with several media interfaces available on-board including: Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI, and more. HES-7 also has a PCI Express finger available on-board and is able to handle PCI Express Gen2 and Gen31 designs for up to 8 Gb/s serial data rate.

Northwest Logic’s  PCI Express Solution provides a robust and proven platform for developing PCI Express 3.0/2.1/1.1 based products. This high-performance, easy-to-use solution includes a controller core (Expresso 3.0 Core), DMA core (Expresso DMA Core), and drivers (Expresso DMA Drivers).

“HES-7 provides a lot of capability in a little package,” said Northwest Logic’s president, Brian Daellenbach, “The dual Virtex-7 2000T and ARM support, in combination with the Northwest Logic PCIe Cores, enable large SoC, PCIe-based designs to be quickly prototyped with a minimum of design partitioning”.
