DSP development tools to speed digital comm designs

Designers of digital communication systems working with DSPs from Xilinx, Inc. can add System Generator for DSP v7.1 development software and XtremeDSP Virtex-4 SX35, a development kit, to their tool belt. In particular, by paving a complete development path from system modeling to verified hardware, the pair of new products should make it easier to achieve high sample-rate or multichannel signal processing designs.
