electronicaUSA Conference Showcases Xilinx Technology
3/26/2004 - Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX), announced its involvement in the electronicaUSA Conference in San Francisco next week.
Xilinx Named Best of Show Award Finalist
Xilinx has been named a Best of Show Award finalist for embedded technology in an end-user application. Xilinx was selected as a finalist for its low cost programmable Spartan® Series chips embedded in the SENSIO 3D Video Processing System -- a breakthrough 3D video processing technology that transforms conventional home theaters into a 3D stereoscopic movie experience that rivals the best theme park experiences. The SENSIO 3D Video Processing System will be on display in Xilinx booth #1326 March 30 – April 1, 2004. The Best of Show winner will be announced at booth #436 at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 30.
Free Xilinx Hands-On Workshops
Xilinx will run several 90 minute Embedded Workshops and will host partner sessions from Wind River Systems and MontaVista Software over the course of the show.
- Xilinx UltraControllerTM Hands-on Workshop
The advent of fully programmable devices with embedded features provides the ability to rapidly create optimized System-On-Chip designs without the high risks associated with an ASIC-based solution. At this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn to implement SoC designs that range in complexity from simple self-contained systems to full computing machines targeting Xilinx Virtex-II ProTM FPGAs featuring an embedded IBM PowerPCTM core and Multi-Gigabit Transceivers using the Xilinx Embedded Development Kit (EDK). The session will focus on the Xilinx design tools suite that can be used to build a high-performance tightly integrated programmable system that is completely flexible and uses embedded hard and soft-core processors and customizable IP.
Tuesday, March 30 - 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Wednesday, March 31 - 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Thursday, April 1 - 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
- Xilinx Platform Studio Workshop
The evolution of programmable platform devices with embedded hard and soft processor cores and customizable IP has enabled System-on-Chip design for a growing variety of engineers. Utilizing the Xilinx Platform Studio development environment, this 90 minute hands-on workshop will instruct hardware engineers, software engineers or system architects on how to quickly create embedded designs. Attendees will get to target a Xilinx Virtex-II Pro Platform FPGA with embedded PowerPC, customize the design with the Base System Builder, and boot their system on a real hardware development board.
Tuesday, March 30 - 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Wednesday, March 31 - 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Thursday, April 1 - 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
- Wind River Systems Development Flow and Demonstration for Xilinx Platform FPGAs
Wind River will present and demonstrate their complete development environment, including IDE, compiler and debugger tools supporting Xilinx Virtex-II Pro embedded PowerPC processors. The content of this presentation will leverage the capabilities of the Xilinx Embedded Development Kit. Attendees will learn the key points of embedded systems development from both the application and system developer view points.
Tuesday, March 30 - 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
- MontaVista DevRocket Demonstration for Xilinx Platform FPGAs
Xilinx AllianceEmbedded member MontaVista Software will present and demonstrate their GUI Integrated Development Environment showcasing rich embedded development tools supporting the embedded PowerPC processor core for the Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGA family. Ultimately booting MontaVista Linux on a Virtex-II Pro based development platform, an attendee will learn the key points of embedded systems development from both the application and system developer view points.
Wednesday, March 31 - 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
