ZeBu-Server is an extremely high capacity system emulator with the easy setup and debugging associated with emulation, and the price/performance of rapid prototyping. Supporting multiple users, interfaces, and host computers, ZeBu-Server is a flexible, scalable emulator, with a capacity up to 1 Billion ASIC gates. Providing high bandwidth and multi-MHz performance at any level, ZeBu-Server primarily aims at large-scale, multi-core chip and system emulation applications. It is ideal for the system-integration phase of the design cycle where multiple logic blocks, multiple chips, and embedded software all must be verified together. Hardware design and software development teams can share the same system and design representation, and can easily collaborate when debugging complex hardware/software interactions. The net effect is that hardware/software integration takes place much earlier in the design cycle, thereby reducing silicon respins and accelerating time to market. ZeBu-Server is the highest performance emulator in the market, while also offering the most cost-effective solution in a small footprint, thanks to its use of standard Xilinx Virtex5-LX330 FPGAs. The ZeBu compiler automatically handles any design, regardless of size, coding style, clocking scheme, or memory structure, making it easy to map even your largest designs. These have historically been the biggest problems with other FPGA-based rapid prototyping systems, but not with ZeBu, thanks to its complete software infrastructure.
