Evaluate FPGA Manager - for free
Whether it’s writing configuration data, reading out measurement data, or streaming video, communication with a host PC is a part of many FPGA-based applications. This requires that the gap between the two very different worlds of VHDL programming and software development is bridged, ideally in such a way that both VHDL developer and software programmer can work within their areas of expertise without having to get deep into foreign technical territory.
FPGA Manager is a solution which brings all of these requirements together: an intuitive VHDL interface, a simple software interface, and all interfacing needs in between taken care of; interfaces such as USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express are all supported using one software API.
We're offering a free evaluation version of FPGA Manager upon request, for selected combinations of our FPGA modules and base boards.
Mercury+ PE1 base board, now in 3 variants
Our Mercury PE1 base board is now the Mercury+ PE1 base board - this transformation, however, hasn't required any shape-shifting. At first glance it's the same PCIe base board as before, but it's now offered in 3 different variants: the PE1-200, PE1-300, and PE1-400. The keen-eyed reader will also notice the third 168-pin Hirose connector, which means the board now supports FPGA and SoC modules in the Mercury+ form factor, which have 3 connectors, as well as Mercury modules with 2 connectors. The additional I/Os can be put to use with an FMC high pin-count add-on board, available on the PE1-300, or via two FMC low pin-count connectors, as on the PE1-400.

The Enclustra Linux build environment has arrived
The new Linux build environment makes building Linux for Enclustra SoC modules a breeze - select your module type and base board, let the build system loose, and when the build completes you'll have ready-to-run Linux binaries for your Xilinx Zynq or Altera Cyclone V SoC module. Click through to take a look.
Mercury+ SA2 prototypes have arrived
The first Mercury+ SA2 prototypes have arrived - and they look rather good. It's our first module in the new Mercury+ form-factor, which adds a third 168-pin Hirose FX10 connector to the standard two found on Mercury modules. This doesn't come at the cost of increased size, though - the module is still a petite 74 × 54 mm. In terms of on-board computing power, the SA2 is equipped with an Altera® Cyclone® V SoC, with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and FPGA fabric; to interface with these there are 258 I/Os, as well as 9 MGTs. Up to 2 GBytes of DDR3L SDRAM, 64 MBytes of quad SPI flash cater for memory needs, while interfaces on offer are PCIe® Gen1/Gen2 ×4, Gigabit Ethernet, 2 × Fast Ethernet, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. In short: there's a lot on there.
