I just heard from the guys and gals at Aldec that they've released the HES-7 -- their latest FPGA-based prototyping board leveraging the All Programmable Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA.
By utilizing a high-density single or dual FPGA configuration, the HES-7 platform eliminates many prototyping issues regarding complicated FPGA partitioning strategies such as high power consumption and restricted I/O.
The HES-7 provides an affordable, flexible, and scalable prototyping platform allowing designers to verify their designs (up to 24 Million ASIC gates) more quickly with pre-existing FPGA synthesis tools.
