Xcell Journal Issue 81 Looks at How Xilinx is a Generation Ahead at 28nm

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — �Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced immediate availability of the autumn 2012 edition of Xcell Journal magazine. Issue 81's cover story looks at how Xilinx moved itself a generation ahead of the competition on the 28nm process node with its All Programmable SoCs, 3D ICs, FPGAs and the new Vivado™ Design Suite. Xcell Journal is available as a one-click pdf download or in iPad®/iPod®-compatible ISSUU electronic magazine format.

"This issue of Xcell Journal chronicles the hard work that Xilinx began in 2008 to not only offer the industry's most innovative FPGAs on the 28nm process, but to go many steps further to expand the market and definition of programmability by bringing the Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC and Virtex®-7 FPGAs to market," said Xcell Journal Publisher, Mike Santarini. "Now that customers have 28nm devices in their hands and these FPGAs are going into new products, Xcell Journal is detailing the innovative ways engineers are using these devices to reduce BOM costs and get innovative products to market faster." 

In addition to this quarter's cover story, Xcell Journal issue 81 is packed with informative how-to stories for every technical skill level, including " How to Implement State Machines in Your FPGA," in which author Adam Taylor discusses the different types of state machines and how to best implement them in your designs. The issue also includes two comprehensive articles describing how to use Xilinx's new Vivado High-Level Synthesis (HLS) tool.

In the first Vivado HLS article, Xilinx field application engineers Daniele Bagni and Giulio Corradi explain how they used Vivado HLS in the design of a floating-point PID (proportional integral derivative) controller that was implemented on the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. In the second Vivado HLS article, Xilinx engineer James Hrica shows readers how to use Vivado HLS to implement a floating point design in FPGAs. Another highlight of this issue is a comprehensive methodology feature called " Image Sensor Color Calibration Using the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC."
