DINI Group Rolls out FPGA Based DNVUF4A; a Stackable ASIC Prototyping System

By CIOReview | Tuesday, September 1, 2015

LA JOLLA, CA: Provider of FPGA-based boards, critical IP and systems, the DINI Group recently unveiled its latest product DNVUF4A. The stackable Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) prototyping system hosts four of the Xilinx Virtex Ultrascale XCVU440 that works on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology.

The electronics package has a capacity of 116 million ASIC gates and enables seamless stacking of 8 or more boards to its design; ensuring high speed prototype of ASICs and SOCs (System-on-chip) with the use of 1 billion or more gates. It powers up high capacity, high performance FPGA products from different FPGA platforms.

 “The new DNVUF4A Virtex UltraScale board is perfectly suited for verification teams that do not want to spend precious resources designing and debugging their own FPGA-based hardware” says Mike Dini, President, DINI Group.

The microchip is designed for specific applications such as transmission of protocol, and it is developed by Xilinx integrated synthesis environment. The product hosts four of the high I/O- count XCU440 in the 2892-pin package. This FPGA device contains 5 million flip-flops, facilitating the rather important task of logic partitioning. The interconnection between the four FPGAs on the board helps in customizing FPGA to FPGA interconnection. It provides an onboard processor boots to Linux and ensures remote hosting capability. The architecture enables clients from all over the globe to access the hardware design without being physically present.

FPGA boards from the group are used in large quantities for ASIC and SOC prototyping, low latency trading, and high performance computing.
