Modern industrial systems are faced with many key design challenges including: system complexity, real-time performance requirements, evolving standards, and rising costs. ASIC prototyping platforms, such as Aldec HES-7™, provide a platform for designers to implement and verify functionality of industrial systems at-speed prior to silicon tape-out, saving money from costly re-spins.  In this white paper, we take a look how to tackle a few industrial design applications with Aldec’s HES-7, which now supports ARM® Cortex-A9 based designs by leveraging Xilinx’s new Zynq® All Programmable SoC.
