Framingham, Mass., September 5, 2013
Bluespec, Inc. today announced that its affordable, easy-to-use desktop emulation software, Semu™, supports Xilinx 7 series All Programmable FPGAs and the Vivado® Design Suite. Support for Xilinx Kintex®-7 KC705 and Virtex®-7 VC707 Evaluation Kits is available now and support for additional boards and devices will follow.
Individual ASIC and FPGA developers, including architects, modelers, designers and even verification engineers, have been limited primarily to simulation and, for the adventurous, home-grown FPGA-based solutions. For these users, Semu brings together the power of FPGAs and C to deliver Desktop Emulation, a high-speed verification and hybrid prototyping solution targeted to their capacity, budget and productivity needs.
* KC705 and VC707 support 4.9M and 7.3M raw ASIC gates, respectively (the assumption is 1 Logic Cell = ~15 ASIC Gates). Gate count capacities depend on design and utilization. Using a conservative assumption of gate count and utilization, the boards are capable of supporting ~2.3M and ~3.5M ASIC gates, respectively.
