Proce IV
Gidel's Proce IV is an ALTERA Stratix IV 360-820 , PCIe  based Board.



The Proce IV™ system provides a high-capacity, high-speed FPGA-based platform fortified with high throughput and massive memory, resulting in a powerful and highly flexible system. The Proce IV can be hosted via 4-lane PCI Express. The board’s high speed performance coupled with memory and add-on daughter boards' flexible architecture enable the system to meet almost any computational needs. In addition to 512MB on-board memory, two SODIMM sockets provide up to 8GB of memory or additional connectivity and logic. Abundant memory conjoined with fast PCIe connection enable strong co-processing between a standard PC operating system and the FPGA acceleration. 

 The Proce IV system, with Gidel's ProcDeveloper's Kit and tools, offers incredible performance yet supports quick implementation of your unique design. These unique features are achieved by eliminating the need for a high-speed board design, a PCI Express application driver, board constraints and environment FPGA code. The generated HDL code enables high throughput, easy-to-use parallel access to large memories. As a result, designers can focus on their proprietary value-added design. User designs may be in HDL, C-based, Simulink (graphical design) or any combination of them.

    Target Applications

       COTS acquisition and accelerator boards in:

      HPC (High Performance Computing)

      Machine Vision and Imaging

      High performance acquisition systems

      Bioinformatics Applications

       Small ASIC and SoC Prototyping

       Complex algorithm and IPs validation

    Operating systems

  • Microsoft Windows.
  • Linux.



  • Re-Configuration

    • Proce IV boards can be easily re-configured by user's software. The re-configuration is accomplished simply by closing the current class object and opening a new application driver object. The board can alternatively be re-configured by calling the Load_IC method or using the ProcWizard development tool in order to merely replace a specific device.

    • The application drivers are automatically generated by ProcWizard.
    • The rapid parallel access to on-board DRAM and DDR II memories can also be reconfigured using the Proc Multiport controller.
