"Advances in technology announced by Xilinx and Cadence can translate into real time-to-market and quality boosts for our mutual customers. Xilinx Targeted Design Platforms enable rapid creation of SoCs that scale to the sweet spot for both the Open Verification Methodology (OVM) and the Cadence Incisive functional verification, helping customers to reduce overall project costs and risks." -- Michal Siwinski, Marketing Group Director of Enterprise Verification Cadence Design Systems, Inc.
"Xilinx's Base Targeted Design Platform with their new Virtex-6 family of FPGAs will help us bring the most advanced reconfigurable computing solutions to rugged deployed aerospace and defense applications. The combination of our new high speed I/O FPGA Mezzanine Cards (FMC), our high performance VPX DSP engines and the Virtex-6 base platform kit will be ideal for demanding military computing applications, such as direct RF down-conversion, SigInt/Surveillance, Satellite communications and SDR." -- Lynn Patterson, Vice President and General Manager of Modular Solutions Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing
"Linear Technology is pleased to be collaborating with Xilinx in the strategic areas of analog and power. With the launch of the new Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 family base platform, we now offer customers verified and proven power solutions for easy implementation in their own end-systems. Recognizing that designers are looking for reliable, easy-to-implement power solutions, the Spartan-6 FPGA kit includes Linear's proven LTM4616 power uModule regulators. This ensures users a reliable power solution for a broad range of telecommunications, wireless infrastructure and automotive applications." -- Afshin Odabaee, Product Marketing Manager, Power uModule Products Linear Technology
"Linear Technology is committed to supporting the new Xilinx Targeted Design Platform strategy. We are launching a family of new high speed, low power ADCs with daughter cards, utilizing the VITA 57 FMC connector, allowing Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 family base platform users to easily evaluate interoperable solutions using Linear Technology ADCs and Xilinx FPGAs. The new ADC daughter cards target high performance applications in communications infrastructure, test and measurement, industrial and medical instrumentation systems." -- Alison Steer, Product Marketing Manager for Mixed Signal Products Linear Technology
"Mentor's Precision Synthesis provides major benefits to Xilinx customers. Precision's logic synthesis and physical synthesis capabilities enable designers to achieve their quality-of-results goals and exploit the performance improvements in the new Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 devices in support of Xilinx Targeted Design Platforms." -- Simon Bloch, Vice President and General Manager, Design and Synthesis Division Mentor Graphics Corporation
"The Xilinx base platform, which includes silicon, tools, IP and boards, provides a complete platform for rapidly creating high-performance PCI Express applications. Northwest Logic is integrating its high-performance, easy-to-use PCI Express DMA Engine on to this platform. This DMA Engine will be packaged with a demonstration application and drivers to form a complete Connectivity Targeted Reference Design built to support the new Spartan-6 and Virtex-6 devices with the Xilinx base platform. Use of this Targeted Reference Design by Xilinx customers will significantly reduce system development and integration efforts accelerating time to market." -- Brian Daellenbach, President Northwest Logic Inc.
"Synopsys and Xilinx have been in close collaboration for many years, and this relationship allows us to provide immediate and high quality support for Xilinx Targeted Design Platforms. As the capacity and functionality of the newest FPGAs from Xilinx reach new heights, it is even more critical to offer a cohesive design and verification platform to our mutual customers. We have tuned our Synplify Pro and Synplify Premier synthesis products to deliver high performance and reduced area utilization for Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGAs and to provide a smooth design flow with the new ISE 11.2 design suite." -- Jeff Garrison, Director of Marketing for FPGA Implementation Synopsys, Inc.
"VITA is excited to see Xilinx introduce platform kits using the FMC standard. Xilinx was a key contributor to what is certain to be a widely used platform for FPGA developers." -- Ray Alderman, Executive Director VITA
