Xilinx at Electronica 2008

What: Xilinx demonstrates programmable logic solutions at Electronica 2008

Where: New Munich Trade Fair Centre, Munich, Germany, Booth #Hall A4-107

When: November 11 - 14, 2008

DUBLIN, Ireland
Nov 6, 2008

Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) announced today its participation at Electronica 2008, set in Munich, Germany from November 11-14. Xilinx will exhibit its leading programmable logic solutions enabling the latest electronics technology with in-booth demonstrations focusing on automotive, industrial networking, machine vision and surveillance applications.

  Xilinx In-Booth Demonstrations

  -- Driver Assistance Processing Algorithms
     Demonstration of a Lane Departure Warning Image Pre-Processor,
     illustrating the transition from PC-based image analytics algorithms to
     FPGA-based hardware. A lane marker detection algorithm processed on a
     Spartan®-3A DSP device showcases a FGPA implementation method
     utilizing Xilinx System Generator for DSP software as a plug-in toolbox
     for The Mathworks Simulink® modelling environment. Also highlights
     accelerated algorithm testing with hardware co-simulation performance.

  -- Hybrid Instrument Clusters
     Demonstration of a hybrid cluster development platform that supports a
     broad range of I/O standards, multiple configurations and extensive
     design reuse. Enabled by the Xilinx Spartan-3E FPGA and MicroBlaze™
     soft core processor on a Xylon LogiCRAFT3 development board,
     applications include integrating stepper motor control of analog gauges
     with graphics controllers for digital displays.

  -- Reconfigurable Instrument Clusters
     Reconfigurable cluster combines traditional dashboard information in a
     digital format with full digital display of driver assistance
     information. Demonstrates the flexibility and system integration
     capabilities of programmable platforms using rear view camera in
     vehicle-reverse application. Features XA Spartan-3A DSP FPGA with
     application-specific IP for multiple LCD displays and camera-based
     image processing.

  -- Automotive Video and Data Recorder (VADR)
     Demonstration of a comprehensive solution for real-time processing of
     live camera images and previously recorded data that leverages Xilinx
     Spartan-3 Series FPGA devices in image sharpening, low pass filtering,
     sobel edge detection, local area processing, and optical flow

  -- Eutecus Multi-core Video Analytics Engine Development Kit
     Demonstration of a video analytics development platform using the
     Xilinx Video Starter Kit for smart video applications including:
     real-time analysis of SD/HD video streams simultaneously detecting
     trespassing, left/stolen objects, people counting and loitering --
     driven by Xilinx Spartan-3A DSP FPGAs.

  -- EtherCAT Industrial Ethernet Fieldbus System
     Demonstration of an open, deterministic, real-time and full-duplex
     protocol for industrial automation with minimal protocol overhead via
     implicit addressing and an optimized telegram structure for
     decentralized I/O - driven by Xilinx Spartan-3E FPGA devices.

  -- SERCOS III Real-time Network System
     Demonstration of a high speed, deterministic network protocol IP for
     motion and I/O control based on the digital drive interface specified
     by IEC61491 over an Ethernet infrastructure -- driven by Xilinx Spartan
     3E FPGA devices.
