FPGA-PCB Co-Design

FPGA-PCB Co-Design

FPGA/PCB co-design that integrates synthesis and I/O optimization

With the complexity of FPGAs now approaching that of ASICs and SoCs, system designers must consider more advanced FPGA implementation flows. Advanced synthesis technology as part of an integrated FPGA vendor neutral design environment enables architecture-specific optimization that fully utilizes and takes advantage of the specific architectural features for each FPGA device so you meet your design requirements.

FPGA I/O optimization provides an extensive set of easy to use functionality created to fully support schematic and PCB engineers with their FPGA-on-board integration. Furthermore, concurrent design processes provide greater accuracy and speed. Correct-by-construction FPGA I/O assignment allows for pin swapping and layout-based I/O optimization within the PCB process to significantly reduce the time-to-market of PCB systems and manufacturing costs, both absolutely key in today’s fast paced and ever-changing design environment

  • Reduce the total product design cycle time by changing a serial process into a concurrent process
  • Decrease PCB manufacturing costs by eliminating PCB signal layers
  • Eliminate PCB re-spins due to out-of-date FPGA symbols on the PCB
  • Utilize high-speed performance optimization
  • Remove the costs associated with creating and maintaining the FPGA symbol(s) for the PCB schematic
