"Programmable World 2004 will offer an intense day of learning and networking around the most exciting new programmable technology in the world - the Virtex-4 Platform FPGA family," said Jim Cairns, director of Corporate Solutions Marketing at Xilinx. "Engineers and system architects interested in the latest programmable systems solutions optimized for breakthrough performance and unmatched capability at the lowest cost should not miss this 'must-attend' event."
Programmable World 2004 Highlights Include:
- Digital Signal Processing Track: A full day of training and insights into designing high-performance DSP systems for Platform FPGA solutions. This track will look at the FPGA Platform Radio as the enabler for 3G and 4G communication systems; accelerating productivity through new DSP design techniques for FPGAs; harnessing the power of the new Virtex-4 XtremeDSP Slice to obtain the highest DSP performance and productivity, and speeding high-performance, real-time Video/Imaging applications with FPGAs and DSPs.
- Connectivity Track: An introduction to the new high-speed serial connectivity capabilities of Virtex-4 Platform FPGAs and a deep look into design practices, tools and applications solving the physical challenges for data rates as high as 11 Gbps. This track will delve into designing serial backplanes with Xilinx solutions; addressing integrated FPGA/PCB system design challenges (Mentor Graphics); multi-gigabit serial channel interconnect requirements (1 Gbps-10+Gbps); successful 10 Gbps backplane design using Xilinx FPGAs (Ansoft/Xilinx); and technical design examples using next-generation SONET/SDH networking solutions.
- Embedded Processing Track: Comprehensive coverage of Xilinx and partners' embedded processing solutions and design tools. This track will teach implementation and platform debug of a dual PowerPC system with a floating point co-processor; Fast Simplex Link -SW accelerations using the Xilinx MicroBlaze soft processor for multi-channel data acquisition; accelerating development of RTOS-based embedded systems with integrated embedded tools; and Ethernet solutions for Xilinx processors.
- Logic Track: An in-depth look at new tools, techniques and platform FPGA features for meeting functionality and timing requirements quickly and easily. This track will focus on dramatically accelerating in-circuit debug of FPGA-based systems (Agilent); design techniques for maximum performance and minimum area in Virtex-4 Platform FPGAs; Virtex-4 memory interface solutions; secret recipes for Virtex-4 (Synplicity); and low-cost design techniques illustrated in Spartan-3.
- Technical Demonstrations: An opportunity to meet with key programmable systems leaders such as Agilent, Mentor Graphics, Synplicity and Texas Instruments, as well as other providers of programmable systems solutions comprising silicon, tools, software, IP, services and support. The exhibit floor will showcase the latest technology and innovations that for boosting system performance while reducing cost, power consumption and design time.
