In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Aldec Adds ARM Cortex-A9 Support to HES-7 ASIC Prototyping Platform

Aldec, Inc., in its commitment to support the growing requirements of hardware and software verification engineers, now supports ARM® dual-core Cortex™-A9 MPCore® application development and verification in its HES-7™ ASIC prototyping platform. HES-7 leverages Xilinx Virtex-7 2000T and Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC and includes peripherals supporting media interfaces, memories and additional connectors to expand the development of a wide array of SoC applications.

The HES-7 ASIC prototyping platform, coupled with open-source Linux, Android and FreeRTOS solutions available from Xilinx, provides software developers of ARM Cortex-A9 applications with a complete SoC platform. These applications, along with the 4 to 96 million ASIC gate scalable capacity of HES-7, deliver a powerful verification platform for design teams comprised of hardware and software engineers.

Leverage Cortex-A9

Designers can now leverage the serial processing capabilities of the Cortex-A9 processor for applications that require intensive computations and operating systems with the parallel processing capabilities of HES-7 ASIC prototyping platform to create applications across a diverse range of markets including: Video, Communications, Control Systems and Bridging.

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.


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.
