Xilinx at SDR Technical Conference 2007

What: Xilinx Demonstrates Low Power Solutions for Tactical Radiosat SDR Technical Conference 2007

Where: Marriott Tech Center

Denver, Colo.

Booth #2

When: November 5 - 9, 2007

SAN JOSE, Calif.
Oct 31, 2007

Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), the world's leading provider of programmable logic solutions, today announced that it will showcase its Virtex™ FPGA-based solutions for Software Defined Radio (SDR) at the Software Defined Radio Technical Conference, to be held at The Marriott Tech Center, November 5 - 9, 2007 in Denver, Colo. Xilinx high-performance programmable solutions enable SDR developers to meet demanding size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) goals for next-generation secure systems.

  Xilinx SDR Participation includes the following:

  Booth Demonstrations
  Partially Reconfigurable FPGA-based Architecture
  Developed by Thales, the demonstration will showcase how designers can
  overcome size, weight and power (SWAP) constraints by implementing
  multiple applications in a Xilinx® FPGA using partial reconfiguration.
  Partial reconfiguration utilizes the inherent flexibility of FPGAs to
  adapt a hardware design to modify applications while keeping the rest of
  the device active.

  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 tools 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.

  Technical Sessions
  Tuesday, November 6, 2007
  --  "Generalizing Partial Reconfiguration Designs"
      Stephen Neuendorffer and Chad Epifanio, Xilinx, Inc.
  --  "The Myths of Code Portability"
      Manuel Uhm and Chad Epifanio, Xilinx, Inc.
