HES-DVM Proto Cloud Edition

HES-DVM Proto CE is the Cloud Edition of Aldec’s HES-DVM software product used for design compilation and partitioning into multi-FPGA prototyping platforms. It is available in Amazon AWS Marketplace as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) built upon the Amazon Linux image as a base with preinstalled Aldec HES-DVM software. The HES-DVM Proto CE combines Electronic Design Automation software for design partitioning and compute platform scalability of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).

Partitioning for Multi-FPGA Prototyping

Physical prototyping enables the highest clock rates, often close to the target ones, so it is ideal for verification in the real environment with devices sending and receiving real data streams. The HES-DVM Proto CE aids in design partitioning, clock conversion and mapping to FPGA and facilitates designing inter-chip connections that utilize serialization techniques to overcome limitation of FPGA I/O.

Aldec HES-DVM contains all necessary automation to assist in your design partitioning and provide fast-track for multi-FPGA prototyping. The HES-DVM Proto CE can be used for prototypes containing up to four (4) FPGAs on Aldec HES boards or third party custom board and provides the following key features.

Key Features

  • Fast compilation and synthesis engine for VHDL/Verilog/SystemVerilog RTL
  • Fully automatic and user-guided partitioning
  • Board-level automatic partitions placement and routing
  • Automatic physical interconnections with SERDES and LVDS support
  • Support for largest Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+, UltraScale and Virtex-7 FPGAs
  • Custom board compiler for third-party or in-house developed FPGA boards
  • Impact analysis tool for quick evaluation of partitioning scenarios
  • Logic optimization and replication
  • Gated clocks conversion
  • Board-level critical path reporting
  • Managing timing constraints
