Hitex has created Tanto3 – a universal generic platform which can be used for rapid FPGA prototyping.
Tanto3 can be modified to the user’s needs by simple programming and is ideal for test applications, signal and bus analysis, debugging and programming as well as FPGA development. The platform is equipped with high-speed communication interfaces (USB3.0, Gigabit Ethernet) and a 3,5“ TFT color touch screen. The fanless passive cooled system with its Cyclone V SoC control processor, a 1GB DDR3 RAM, a powerful Stratix V and 24MB SSRAM can be configured and used for sophisticated designs. Applications requiring fast I/O access with complex processing power can be hosted on the FPGA and thus make the design more efficient.
The flexible concept makes all FPGA signals accessible and allows the integration of customized interfaces without great effort. Additionally, test and verification can be accelerated, since the software can be developed before the chip is available.
