The DeskPOD system gives you the flexibility and freedom of your own FPGA prototype board while providing the benefits of an integrated environment for simulation, FPGA prototype and software debugger
Traditional prototype boards are inflexible: You have to wait until the whole design is ready.
DeskPOD allows you to leverage the FPGA prototype earlier and easier.
As a result, you will have more schedule flexibility. You will have earlier access to the FPGA prototype: Hardware engineers will be able to accelerate simulation and software engineers will be able to test the target before the hardware is complete.
The key steps in the process are:
DeskPOD adaptor boards come fully tested and ready to use with an option of adding daughter cards. Each adaptor board has a set of connectors that allow you to attach up to two daughter cards.
These daughter cards allow you to add other components and build a connector to the final evaluation board that will allow you to verify the evaluation board. The main board supports up to two daughter cards so one can be for additional components and one for the "cable-in" connector.
If the additional daughter cards become too complex, it is always possible to customize the main adaptor board and include additional components on the main board itself.
The DeskPOD system enhances The SoC design and verification process that allows you to increase confidence in your design and save time and money.
