The RTAX-S/SL and RTSX-SU prototyping solution from Aldec allows designs that use these Microsemi devices to be prototyped with a reprogrammable FPGA device. This not only speeds up the development process but also mitigates risk by using a proven development methodology. Alternative methodologies that use reprogrammable devices during initial design development can be both costly and unreliable, due to the additional components required to support the development FPGA. The Aldec solution with its pin-for-pin compatible adaptor avoids such issues.
The software conversion tool automatically converts the RTAX-S/SL and RTSX-SU EDIF netlist into a ProASIC3E EDIF netlist, eliminating the requirement to perform manual mapping of RTAX and RTSX primitives and memory blocks to ProASIC3E devices. Aldec’s prototyping adaptor boards and netlist converter reduces overall project costs and shortens design validation time of the RTAX-S/SL and RTSX-SU project.
The pin remapping utility allows automatic Physical Design Constraint (PDC) file conversion, which eliminates the need for additional manual work.
The Aldec RTAX development solution has been successfully used in numerous flight proven designs.
