BEE3

Description

The BEE3 Advanced Processing Platform provides a multiple-FPGA prototyping platform for system designs that require large design capacity, memory and I/O bandwidth, and programmability with high-performance. Based around the BEEcube BEE3, it is equipped with industry-standard peripherals, connectors, and interfaces that offer a rich set of features suitable for a wide range of compute-intensive applications

Benefits

  • Accelerates research by providing
    • A feature-rich platform for implementing and validating embedded system architectures and algorithms
    • An automated design flow from MATLAB/Simulink, reducing development effort and enabling platform use by application/domain experts
  • Addresses specific research needs through a hardware/software programmable system, in particular:
    • Multi-core SOC design and emulation
    • High performance Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
    • Hardware-based application acceleration
  • Enables a faster path to commercialization by sourcing commercial-grade components and through compliance with commercial standards and interfaces (e.g., PCI-express, Ethernet).

Features

  • 4 Xilinx Virtex-5 (LX155T) FPGAs with high-bandwidth inter-FPGA I/O
  • 64-GB DDR2 DRAM (16 GB per FPGA)
  • 4 x Gigabit Ethernet ports (1 per FPGA)
  • Serial I/O, SD card, PCI-express connectors
  • BEEcube Platform Studio (BPS) software in MATLAB/Simulink automates FPGA flow from system-level
  • Support for Xilinx-based HDL flow
  • Reference designs and tutorials demonstrate use of inter-FPGA communications, Ethernet
