Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) announced 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(R)-3A DSP device showcases a FGPA implementation method utilizing Xilinx System Generator for DSP software as a plug-in toolbox for The Mathworks Simulink(R) 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(TM) 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 measurements.
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.
