S2C develops advanced system on a chip (SoC) FPGA-based prototyping solutions and software tools to accelerate and simplify the integration of embedded systems into chips. S2C products let designers easily and securely employ commercial silicon intellectual property (IP) to quickly assemble SoC prototypes and immediately start software development. Combining rapid prototyping solutions with a comprehensive portfolio of prototype-ready IP from our partners, S2C can reduce the SoC design cycle by up to nine months.
S2C Inc. currently provides the products listed in the following tables:
|Table 1. Design Tools Supporting Altera Devices|
|Design Flow||Tool Name||Description|
|Compilation runtime control debugging||TAI Player Pro||This software enables you to implement SoC designs on Altera® FPGA prototypes from register transfer level (RTL). TAI Player Pro combines four distinct functions under one software package to reduce the challenges of building design prototypes on FPGAs: design compile, runtime control of FPGA hardware, design debug using ILA, and link to ESL models through SCE-MI.|
|Table 2. Available Development Kits|
|Product||Description||Supported Altera Devices|
|S4 TAI Logic Module||This module can hold designs of up to 32.8M ASIC gates with four, two or one Altera Stratix® IV EP4SE820/EPSE530 FPGAs. The S4 TAI Logic Modules can run both DDR2 and DDR3 memory up to 667 MHz. Multiple TAI Logic Modules can be easily stacked together to meet the demand for fast-growing prototyping capacity. TAI Logic Module users can easily download FPGAs, generate programmable clocks, and self-test hardware from S2C’s TAI Player Runtime software via a straightforward USB 2.0 interface.||Stratix IV|
