Booth Demonstrations WNW Radio: Demonstration of the Nova Stingray, one of the smallest SDR radios available today, shows the WNW OFDM waveform running on a Xilinx Virtex™-4 LX60 FPGA. This SCA-compliant radio runs the entire waveform stack (layers 1 through 7), and covers the spectrum from 200 MHz to 2 GHz. The demonstration consists of a streaming video application showing large, continuous, and uninterrupted streams of data. JTRS SDR Kit: Demonstration of the first commercially available development platform to use an SCA-enabled SoC architecture and partial reconfiguration of the FPGA to reduce the modem's size, weight and power. Jointly developed by Xilinx and ISR Technologies, a Virtex-4 FX60 supports the full SCA operating environment on the FPGA's embedded general purpose processor, and supports multiple independent waveforms. Xilinx Customer Hospitality Suite MIMO/OFDM Wireless Platform: Demonstration of the WARP Platform, jointly developed by Rice University and Xilinx. WARP is designed to be a low cost SoC-based platform that can support MIMO and OFDM processing for defense applications, as well as commercial applications such as broadband wireless. This demonstration consists of video streaming wirelessly from one platform to an adjacent platform. FPGA-Based Single Chip Cryptographic Solution: Detailed discussion of a single-chip cryptographic solution using the Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGA. The National Security Agency (NSA) and Xilinx have developed a design flow and verification process based on NSA requirements for high-grade cryptographic processing.
