Gidel's ProcSpark II is an ALTERA Cyclone II 35 - based PCI board

Overview

ProcSpark IITM board provides an FPGA-based platform for reconfigurable computing. The FPGA, the memory and the daughterboards' flexible architecture (system I/O, DSP etc.) of the ProcSpark II system, enable the user to build complex designs at fair price. The cost and performance of ProcSpark II make it very attractive for production requirements.

Gidel ProcPak II improves the time-to-market even more. There is no need to design the board, the PCI driver, the application driver layer, define board constraints, design memory controller and write environment FPGA code. This enables designers to focus on their proprietary value-added design instead of spending their valuable effort to recreate standard design components.

With ProcMultiPort innovative memory controller, the generated HDL code enables high speed, easy-to-use parallel access to large memories.

  • Low cost.
  • High flexibility to fit customer needs.
  • Cuts development cycle time and budget.
  • Reliability.
  • Maintainability.
  • Long life cycle.

Application examples
  • Powerful Frame Grabber.
  • Vision, imaging and image recognition.
  • Rapid prototyping.
  • DSP.
  • System hardware acceleration.
  • Test equipment.
  • Aerospace and military systems.
  • Algorithm design and verification.

Re-Configuration
  • ProcSpark II boards can be easily re-configured by user's software. The re-configuration is accomplished simply by closing the current application driver 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 ProcWizard development tool in order to merely replace a specific device.

  • The application drivers are automatically generated by ProcWizard.
  • The rapid parallel access to on-board DRAM and DDR II memories can also be reconfigured using the Proc Multiport controller.
