Xilinx at NIWeek 2010

During National Instruments NIWeek 2010, Xilinx will offer demonstrations and technical sessions based on the LabVIEW FPGA Module. The sessions will focus on aerospace, industrial, medical and wireless applications. Xilinx will also show how their rad-hard Virtex-5QV FPGA is ideal for space applications. NIWeek 2010 will take place August 3-5 at the Austin, Texas Convention Center. The event focuses on graphical system design.

Xilinx at NIWeek Highlights

LabVIEW FPGA for Aerospace & Defense Applications
FPGAs save months of development time compared to ASIC solutions, but they’re sensitive to radiation, constraining their use in space to a complex, triple-redundant form. This session explores the use of LabVIEW FPGA for programming a new single-event-upset immune reconfigurable Virtex-5QV FPGA, making LabVIEW FPGA more applicable in satellite and space applications.

Using Xilinx IP and the COREGenerator System in LabVIEW FPGA
Conference attendees will learn more about Xilinx intellectual property (IP) and how to take advantage of COREGenerator within LabVIEW FPGA. COREGenerator is the Xilinx standard generation and delivery mechanism for Xilinx and third-party IP.

Keynote Address on FPGAs in Space
Amit Dhir, Xilinx senior director for aerospace, defense and high-performance computing, will join the keynote presentation alongside Thom Kreider from Honeywell to discuss rad-hard FPGAs for space applications.

LTE Baseband Prototyping Solution
Demonstration of an NI PXI platform-based solution for fast LTE PHY layer design prototyping

Medical Prototyping Solution
Demonstration of a low-cost prototyping solution for biomedical applications — showcased through a fetal ECG signal simulation

Real-time High-definition Video Processing
Demonstration of Xilinx video IP seamlessly integrating with LabVIEW FPGA, showcasing the extensive library of Xilinx IP available to designers for faster time-to-market

Academic Digital Design Solution
Demonstration of an FPGA-based digital electronics simulation and verification solution for academic-use — designs can be easily exported via VHDL from NI Multisim software to Xilinx ISE design tools, and verified on a FPGA starter board
