Xilinx at CES 2008

If you’re going to be at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show next week, be sure to stop by the Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) booth (South Hall #35768). They’re going to hand out hundred dollar bills to everyone that comes to their booth. OK, I made that part up. Instead of giving away cash, Xilinx will be showcasing their low-cost development solutions for HDMI video connectivity, digital display, mobile handset, image processing, automotive infotainment, and driver information applications.

Here are some of the solutions they be demonstrating:

  • logiCRAFT3 Rear Seat Entertainment System
