  Xilinx MILCOM participation includes the following:

   Booth Demonstrations
   Small Form Factor Software Defined Radio Development Platform
   Demonstration of Xilinx small form factor SDR development platform
   acting as a GSM picocell enabling voice and data communications between
   standard GSM cell phones.  The development platform combines powerful
   power optimization tool with reduced board size (6 x 5 inches).  The
   development platform enables reduction of size, weight, and power for
   mobile, handheld, and small form factor SDRs used in military, public
   safety and commercial radio applications.  The power optimization tool
   allows waveform developers to optimize total system power via iterative
   power measurements and re-partitioning of algorithms across TI's digital
   signal processor and Xilinx FPGAs.

   Xilinx-Enabled Small Form Factor Product Showcase
   Assortment of handheld communication products enabled by Xilinx low-power
   programmable technology including Joint Tactical Radio Systems (JTRS)
   handheld, manpack small form fit (HMS) radios, and battery-powered
   consumer devices.

   Technical Session
   Tuesday, October 30, 2007 -- "Reconfigurable Technology for MIMO-OFDM
   Dr. Raghu Mysore Rao and Dr. Chris Dick, Xilinx
   High data rate applications are driving the need for high throughput and
   spectrally efficient broadband communication systems.  Efficient
   modulation schemes and multiple antenna techniques are being explored for
   such applications as MIMO-OFDM.  OFDM modulation has been adopted by
   almost all major broadband wireless standards including 802.11a/g,
   DVB-T/DVB-H, 802.16, UWB, etc.  MIMO-OFDM is also finding its way into
   some newer standards such as 802.11n and 802.16e.  The key aspects of all
   these standards are reliability and high throughput.  Mobility is also a
   key factor in some of these standards.
