ESC 2005: Xilinx showing ecosystem embedded processing solutions
San Francisco, CA—Xilinx Inc. is exhibiting the latest advances in its embedded processing ecosystem in more than 25 different product demonstrations and technical conference papers by Xilinx (Booth #1525) and other companies at the at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) 2005, March 6-10 at the Moscone Center.
Accelerated Technology, a division of Mentor Graphics (Booth #1702), will present its Nucleus for Xilinx Embedded Development Kit. Integration of Nucleus with Xilinx Embedded Development Kit uses Xilinx MLD technology, and highlights the complete flow from building FPGA core within Xilinx ISE/EDK to automatically generating Nucleus support package to debugging and downloading the Nucleus RTOS, networking stack, and embedded web server to the target system.
Agilent Technologies (Booth #720) will demonstrates its FPGA Dynamic Probe, which measures new groups of internal FPGA signals in seconds without stopping design, without changing timing, and without changing the design. Automation of the set up of the logic analyzer or oscilloscope also will be shown.
Memec (Booth #1835) will exhibit its MontaVista Linux on the Virtex-4 FX12. Linux is implemented on Memec’s Virtex-4 FX development board, which involves setting up the development environment, creating the LSP, and building the kernel to configuring the FPGA. DSP applications are enabled with the Virtex-4 SX35 development board. Memec’s Virtex-4 SX35 development kit demonstration combines design techniques using XtremeDSP with the benefits of hardware-co-simulation and the advantages of Xilinx/MathWorks’ tool chain.
Mentor Graphics (Booth #1702) will show its Seamless FPGA for co-verification. Mentor’s seamless FPGA delivers co-verification for Xilinx FPGAs with PowerPC processors, combining comprehensive hardware and software debug and analysis within an optimal iteration cycle.
National Instruments (NI, Booth #1002) will present its LabView FPGA. Xilinx FPGAs on Reconfigurable I/O (RIO) hardware from NI define custom I/O and control hardware without knowledge of VHDL. Rapid prototyping and development are enabled with intuitive LabView graphical programming. RIO also offers a built-in interface for host PC and real-time integration with FPGA devices.
