12/29/2004 - Xilinx, Inc., the world's largest supplier of programmable logic solutions, and its R&D partner in India, CMC Ltd., a Tata Group company and a leading provider of embedded and real-time solutions, have become joint platinum sponsors of the 18th International Conference on VLSI Design (2005).
January 3-5, 2005
Taj Bengal, Kolkata, India
Xilinx Banquet Speech
January 3, 7:00 p.m.
"Comparison of FPGAs and ASICs for SoC Applications"
Rich Sevcik, Executive Vice President, Xilinx, Inc.
Sevcik's speech will cover the technological evolution and industry trend towards "System-on-a-Chip" or SoC applications. Sevcik will review the various factors that designers must consider, including design time, performance, integration, cost and density, in their choice between an ASIC or FPGA for their SoC applications. He will describe how innovations in programmable logic have enabled platform FPGAs to compete with ASICs to address SoC design requirements - most notably, with the recent introduction of Virtex-4, the world's fastest, most flexible FPGA for DSP, embedded and connectivity applications. Using Virtex-4 multi-platform FPGAs, designers can achieve breakthrough system level and logic performance at the lowest cost, including: up to 43 percent higher logic performance, 2X higher memory bandwidth, 3X higher serial I/O bandwidth, 3X higher DSP performance, and 3X higher embedded processing performance.

About The International Conference on VLSI Design
The International Conference on VLSI Design was started in 1985, as a small workshop at IIT Madras, under the visionary guidance of Dr. Vishwani Agrawal of Auburn University, and Prof. H.N. Mahabala of IIT Madras. From this small start, it has grown into a leading international conference on VLSI design, which draws around 700 attendees, every year, from India and abroad. The proceedings are printed by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA. The conference is dedicated to all aspects of integrated circuit design, technology, and related computer-aided design (CAD).
