Xilinx to Showcase Programmable Logic Solutions at 3GSM

Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) announced that its industry-leading programmable logic solutions for the communications infrastructure and handset markets will be showcased at the 3GSM World Congress, February 12-15, 2007 in Barcelona.

Xilinx will demonstrate how its programmable CoolRunner(TM)-II low-power, low-cost CPLDs are adopted by leading companies such as High Tech Computer Corp. (HTC), the world’s largest provider of PDA phones based on Windows Mobile, for its PDA phone product families. Demonstrations will also include baseband and radio card solutions for mobile phone base stations and solutions based on the recently announced Virtex-5 SXT DSP optimized platform FPGA.

Xilinx Booth (Hall 1 – Stand Number 1E47) Demonstrations:

  • Multi-Standard Digital Radio Subsystem: Demonstration of a high performance digital radio subsystem for mobile phone base stations in which both the baseband and radio cards can be software-configured for either W-CDMA or WiMAX. The subsystem uses programmable logic technology from Xilinx to achieve the required flexibility and performance. The radio card, developed by Axis Network Technology also complies with the initial working group recommendations for 3GPP-LTE.
  • Handset Demonstration Platform: Demonstration focuses on the methodology used to quickly incorporate new features while meeting stringent power consumption, size, and cost requirements of the dynamic converged handset market. Two separate platforms with processor-driven central motherboards feature the Texas Instruments OMAP(TM) processor and the Marvell Xscale processor. Several plug-in modules powered by the low-cost CoolRunner-II CPLDs showcase WiFi, mobile video, and emerging memory interfaces.
  • Virtex-5 SXT Demonstration Platform: Demonstration of a number of digital front end functions implemented on a Virtex-5 SXT device — the latest high-performance DSP optimized platform from Xilinx.
