Synopsys, Inc. announced the availability of its HAPS-80 Desktop (HAPS-80D) system for mid-range system-on-chip (SoC) prototyping. The Synopsys HAPS-80D system builds on the HAPS-80 prototyping family, with more than 1,500 systems deployed. HAPS-80D delivers out-of-the-box high-performance prototyping with built-in interfaces for immediate design interaction to accelerate software development and system validation.
“Maxio Technology develops industry-leading SSD controllers for consumer and enterprise applications,” said Guoyang Li, vice president at Maxio Technology. “Synopsys HAPS delivers a high-performance integrated prototyping solution, enabling our design teams to accelerate software development and perform real-world interface testing at their desktop.”
Designed for mid-range SoC prototyping, HAPS-80D accelerates prototype bring-up and interaction with real-world I/O through special built-in infrastructure to support GPIO, UARTs and a wide variety of SoC peripherals. HAPS-80D’s I/O flexibility enables optimization of connections to support multi-FPGA design requirements. HAPS-80D also provides built-in debug infrastructure for HAPS GSV (Global State Visibility) with support for Synopsys’ Verdi® SoC debug platform, as well as direct connection to a software debugger through Arm® CoreSight, JTAG20 or MICTOR 38 interfaces.
HAPS-80D delivers the industry’s highest inter-FPGA communication performance with its high-speed time-domain multiplexing (HSTDM) technology to support system routes and transfer of design signals at 1.4Gbps single-ended. With its automated partitioning and prototyping flow, HAPS-80D easily scales to increasing design capacity and complexity. HAPS-80D is part of the Synopsys Verification Continuum platform with easy migration between Synopsys VCS simulation, ZeBuemulation, and HAPS prototyping solutions, saving months of design and verification time, and addressing time-to-market challenges.
