  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

   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.
