Xilinx Unveils Open Protocol Initiative For Scalable Serial Connectivity Aimed At Cutting System Costs And Development Time

4/15/2002 - Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX) today announced an open protocol initiative to accelerate the industry-wide transition from parallel to serial interconnect architectures. The initiative includes a link-layer protocol code named Aurora, ideally suited for moving data across point-to-point serial links at a baud rate of up to 50 Gbps. The protocol allows designers of next generation communication and computing systems to achieve higher connectivity performance while preserving software infrastructure investments. Xilinx will discuss the protocol in detail and demonstrate the protocol using Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGAs at Programmable World 2002.
