Xilinx Offers Workshops, Demonstrations, Presentations at ESC 2009

Xilinx will offer demonstrations (including the Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGA families) and conduct hands-on workshops and technical presentations at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) in Silicon Valley. ESC 2009 will take place March 30 – April 4 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, CA.

Xilinx Hands-On Workshops

  • Implementing an HD-Video Control Plane Embedded Processing System
    Tuesday March 31 at 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm, 5 pm
    Using a Xilinx targeted design platform, attendees will implement an FPGA-based MicroBlaze(TM) processor system controlling an HD-video data pipeline with real-time object recognition. This workshop includes implementation of the processor system, connection of the video pipeline, addition of the video recognition engine, and viewing results of modified pipeline parameters.
  • FPGA-based Co-Processing for DSPs using Model Based Design
    Wednesday April 1 at 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, 3:30 pm, 5:30 pm
    Thursday April 2 at 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm
    In this hands-on workshop co-instructed by Xilinx, Avnet, Texas Instruments, and The MathWorks, attendees will use a video motion estimation algorithm to learn how to employ model-based design techniques to develop a co-processing system consisting of a real-time image stabilization application running on a DSP and an FPGA.
