July 2014, HDL Works announces the release and immediate availability of IO Checker 3.0,
the FPGA and PCB IO verification tool.

About IO Checker

IO Checker will verify that signal names used in the FPGA are connected to the appropriate signals on the PCB. Additionally it verifies the voltage values connected to the FPGA power and reference pins. IO Checker uses rules (based on regular expressions) to match the signals names in both the FPGA and PCB design environment. The rules can be generated automatically and be fine-tuned by the designer. The automated approach will often match 80% to 90% of all device pins.

The flexibility of IO Checker allows it to be used in any design flow and does not require any design methodology. The rules generator in combination with the sorted problem view allows engineers to validate a 1000+ pin device in half an hour.

What is new in IO Checker 3.0

IO Checker 3.0 adds support for the Lattice Semiconductor FPGA. With the support for Lattice FPGAs IO Checker now supports all 4 major FPGA Vendors.

Other improvements are in the user interface, support for multiple constraints files, power and LVDS pair verification. More information about new functionality can be found on the company website.

Other improvements are in power and ground verification, PCB net type icon indication, improved search widgets. Xilinx Vivado tool support has been added. More information about new functionality can be found on the company website.

Device Support

Support has been added or updated for the Altera Cyclone V, Lattice ECP2 / ECP3 / ECP5 / MachXO2 / MachXO3 / XP2 and Xilinx Artix 7 / Virtex 7 / Zynq devices.

Availability and Pricing

IO Checker 3.0 is available now. Prices begin at € 750 or US$1,125. IO Checker can be downloaded and evaluated from the HDL Works website.
