DynaChip Announces Evaluation Board for Use With New 66MHz PCI Core.
SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 24, 1999--
DynaChip Corporation, the performance leader in FPGAs, today announced the availability of an evaluation and prototyping kit (EVPCI66) for its recently released 66 MHz (MegaHertZ) One million cycles per second. It is used to measure the transmission speed of electronic devices, including channels, buses and the computer's internal clock. A one-megahertz clock (1 MHz) means some number of bits (16, 32, 64, etc. 64-bit, zero wait state PCI (1) (Payment Card Industry) See PCI DSS.
(2) (Peripheral Component Interconnect) The most widely used I/O bus (peripheral bus). soft core.
The EVPCI66 supports a 528 Mbytes-per-second throughput, providing the highest performance in the industry. This evaluation kit, developed in partnership with PLD (Programmable Logic Device) Refers to a variety of logic chips that are programmable at the customer's site, the customer being the vendor of the finished chip, not the end user. Applications of France, provides an unparalleled opportunity for designers to examine the capabilities of the 66 MHz PCI core in their designs before making a silicon commitment. Additionally, the combination of zero wait states and a softcore implementation provides extremely high performance, and maximum flexibility for designers.
"We introduced an unprecedented level of performance with the 66 MHz PCI core," said Don MacLennan, DynaChip's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The EVPCI66 allows designers to measure actual in-circuit performance and analyze output patterns, without having to build a prototype. This gives them the opportunity to examine the capabilities of this design for their own product development."
The EVPCI66 provides a high degree of design flexibility for prototyping PCI designs. For example, the EVPCI66 includes two 72-pin SIMM connectors that can be populated with standard SRAM See static RAM.
SRAM - static random-access memory or SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM) A type of dynamic RAM (DRAM) memory chip that has been widely used since the late 1990s. SDRAM chips eliminated wait states by dividing the chip into two cell blocks and interleaving data between them. memories, allowing designers to evaluate DynaChip's PCI core as it executes high bandwidth transfers from the PCI bus to standard memory. Designers can also plug custom daughter boards into the SIMM slot to prototype their own applications. System designers can use the reprogrammable serial PROMs on the board to evaluate DynaChip's PCI core and DY6055 device with their own applications. The EVPCI66 also includes power and ground connectors for prototyping applications off the PCI bus enabling designers to exercise the board before the system, with the PCI slot is completed, and to use the board to prototype non-PCI applications. The prototyping kit also includes Windows 95/NT and PowerMAC drivers and sample applications that demonstrate the high performance capabilities of the core.
