Gidel's ProcStar II
is an ALTERA Stratix II 60-180 - based PCI / stand-alone board.
The ProcStar IITM system provides a high-capacity, high-speed FPGA-based platform.
The memory, DSPs and add-on-boards flexible architecture enable the system to meet almost any needs.
The cost / performance envelope makes it also suitable for production requirements.
The ProcStar II system, with Gidel's ProcDeveloper's Kit, offers an incredible performance & improvement in time-to-market.
It is done by eliminating the need for board design, the PCI application driver, board constraints and environment FPGA code.
The generated HDL code enables high speed, easy-to-use parallel access to large memories.
This enables designers to focus on their proprietary value-added design and not spend their
valuable effort to re-create standard design components.

ProcStar II boards can be easily re-configured by user's software.
The re-configuration is accomplished simply by closing the current class object and
opening a new application driver object. The board can alternatively be re-configured by calling the
Load_IC method or using the
development tool in order to merely replace a specific device.
- The application drivers are automatically generated by
- The rapid parallel access to on-board DRAM and DDR II memories can also be reconfigured
using the Proc Multiport controller.
