XtremeDSP Development Kit and Tools Package

Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) announced the availability of their new XtremeDSP(TM) tools package and new XtremeDSP development kit based on the Virtex(TM)-5 SXT FPGA platform. The new bundle and kit offerings include new package pricing that makes it easier for algorithm and system developers who use MATLAB(R) to create high-performance DSP systems using Xilinx(R) FPGAs. The AccelDSP synthesis tool and System Generator for DSP are now available as a packaged bundle for $1,495 (DO-DSP-PC) (previously sold separately for $4,995 and $995 respectively.) The individual tools continue to be available separately for $895 and $995 respectively. The XtremeDSP Development Kit – Virtex-5 DSP Edition (DO-V5-DSP-DK-SG-UNI-G) is available now for $1,695.

XtremeDSP Development Kit
The XtremeDSP Development Kit – Virtex-5 DSP Edition comes with the ML506 development board, reference designs, IP cores, cables and XtremeDSP development tools to give users the ability to create DSP and high-speed serial designs utilizing the Virtex-5 DSP48E slices and RocketIO(TM) GTP transceivers. A variety of onboard memory and industry-standard connectivity interfaces add to the ML506′s ability to serve as a versatile development platform for applications serving wireless, automotive, medical, defense and other applications. For low-cost applications, developers can use the XtremeDSP Solutions Starter Platform — Spartan-3A DSP 1800A FPGA Edition that was announced last September.

XtremeDSP Tool Suite Package
This unique combination of design technologies enables thousands of DSP algorithm and system designers who use the MathWorks(TM) MATLAB and Simulink(R) products to create high-performance systems using Xilinx FPGAs. System Generator allows designers to graphically capture and verify high-performance DSP subsystems in Simulink using a Xilinx optimized DSP blockset and integrate those sub-systems with Xilinx embedded processors and RTL to create complete DSP systems. AccelDSP extends these capabilities to also include design exploration and floating- to fixed-point conversion of MATLAB algorithms targeting Xilinx FPGAs. The XtremeDSP tool Suite Package unites these powerful design solutions into a single integrated DSP development environment at an affordable price.
