|XILINX VIRTEX FPGAS NOW AVAILABLE FOR AEROSPACE AND DEFENSE
Los Altos, Calif., (September 13, 1999) -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX)
today announced the addition of its QML-certified Virtex line of FPGAs
to the company's QPRO family of products for the aerospace and defense
The Virtex line of high performance FPGAs is the first family of programmable
logic devices to offer up to one million system gates. Virtex QPRO products provide
an off-the-shelf system-level ASIC solution for aerospace and defense customers,
without the non-recurring engineering costs, long prototype cycles and minimum
volumes required for custom ASICs.
Also available from Eureka Technology of Los Altos, California, are several
PowerPC peripheral cores for the QPRO Virtex devices. The cores include
a PowerPC bus master and slave, PCI host bridge, bus arbiter, SDRAM controller,
DMA controller and UART. The cores are silicon proven and are available now.
"Many aerospace and defense systems require a military version of the PowerPC,"
said Simon Lau, president of Eureka Technology. "It has become exceedingly
difficult to obtain the required peripherals for these designs, so we have developed
core solutions that work in conjunction with the Xilinx QPRO Virtex devices. This
provides designers with the capability to integrate the complete system core logic
functions into a single Virtex chip. The use of IP cores allows designers to tailor
the system functions to their specific requirements."
