Annapolis Micro Systems, Inc.
Annapolis Micro Systems, Inc., known as The FPGA Performance Company, is a leader in COTS High Performance Processing. Annapolis provides the application developer with everything needed to fully use the power of FPGA processing to solve real time problems, with full bandwidth input and output. The Company excels in providing easy to use and cost effective full system solutions to very demanding real-time data capture, processing and storage problems. The customer can develop his/her application using our CoreFire(tm) Development Suite, with its extensive IP & Board Support Libraries, or with VHDL. Some typical application areas are DSP, Radar, SIGINT, SW Radio, Image Processing, Encryption, and Data Mining. Annapolis is famous for the high quality of our products and for our unparalleled dedication to ensuring that the customers' applications succeed. We offer training and exceptional special application development support, as well as more conventional customer support.
The CoreFireTM FPGA Design Technology is unique in the industry, and is, to the best of our knowledge, superior to and completely unlike that of any other FPGA development tool available.
CoreFireTM Design Suite includes Application Builder,
Application Debugger, Core Module Libraries and Board Support Package
Libraries. Currently runs on Windows NT and Windows 2000. The CoreFireTM Application
Debugger will also run on Solaris, Digital Unix and Linux. Network License management
by SentinelLM License Servers - runs on Windows NT/2000 and Linux.
Product Name: FIREBIRDTM
- FPGA and PLD Design Tools
FIREBIRDTM is part of the WILDSTARTM Product Family, continuing our tradition of supplying COTS Reconfigurable Computing Boards, based on the Xilinx VirtexTM E FPGAs, with a Balanced Architecture for Processing Speed: FPGA Processor Size and Speed, High Memory Bandwidth, and Flexible I/O Options. The FIREBIRDTM Architecture is also available in PMC format.
Product Name: WILDSTAR 4 / 5
- FPGA and PLD Design Tools
WILDSTARTM 4 / 5, our 10th Generation of FPGA Based Processing Boards, using Xilinx Virtex 4 and Virtex 5 FPGAs. Mezzanine Cards and On-Board I/O carry forward the Annapolis WILDSTARTM strategy of providing End to End Input, Processing and Storage, with superior COTS Analog to Digital, Digital to Analog and High Speed Communications Solutions.
All WILDSTARTM 4 / 5 / 6 boards are fully compatible with
the CoreFireTM Design Suite, an FPGA design application tool developed by Annapolis Micro Systems,
The CoreFireTM Design Suite is a Graphical User Interface
(GUI) tool using Data Flow Methodology which combines Annapolis’s extensive
systems and application development experience with their large collection of
tightly crafted high performance Intellectual Property (IP) Cores, the
automatic generation of the logic necessary to control the interfaces between
the modules, and Hardware in the Loop Debugging to provide an exceedingly convenient
and fast methodology for developing FPGA
application files. With CoreFireTM it is possible to completely implement an algorithm
on our WILDTM Family of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) boards without
ever descending to the lower level hardware details, saving months of
development time and money.
