Overview:
Base Targeted Design Platforms combine with optimized development tools to enable simpler and smarter design methodologies for creating FPGA-based system-on-chip solutions targeting a wide variety of markets and applications.

Boosting designers so they can take innovation to a higher level, these integrated platforms of hardware, software, IP and targeted reference designs deliver productivity gains that greatly exceed the sum-of-the-parts of conventional evaluation boards and design examples.

Programmable systems built on FPGAs uniquely provide all the real-time flexibility benefits to quickly add new features as well as support emerging industry standards and satisfy the challenges of today's demanding requirements for increasing performance and bandwidth while also reducing power consumption, system cost and development expense.

FPGAs provide an ideal platform to customize market-specific solutions while pre-packaged base infrastructure can greatly accelerate development times, allowing engineering resources to better focus their valuable time and expertise on creating superior product differentiation.

With the intent of accelerating your time-to-innovation, these platform solutions also leverage the latest release of Xilinx's award-winning ISE® Design Suite, introducing full support for Virtex®-6 and Spartan®-6 FPGAs. Xilinx can provide a solid base platform to kick-start your design so that you don't have to develop all your applications from the ground up.

Web seminar attendees will learn how to:

  • Improve productivity and accelerate system design by utilizing base platforms to quickly ramp up basic infrastructure
  • Focus your value-added differentiation earlier in your development cycle and get your products to market earlier
  • Ease system design via integrated tools with persona-based, domain specific support for logic, DSP, embedded and system designers
  • Who should attend:

  • HW/FPGA designers
  • Systems designers
  • DSP and algorithm developers
  • Embedded system designers
  • Presenter:
