Xilinx Accelerates Development of Next-Generation Systems With Industry's First Deployment of Targeted Design Platforms

    "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
          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
