Military and Aerospace Programmable Logic Devices 2008 Conference

Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) will attend the Military and Aerospace Programmable Logic Devices (MAPLD) 2008 Conference. Xilinx will discuss its programmable logic solutions for aerospace and defense applications at multiple conference sessions and in-booth demonstrations. The Military and Aerospace Programmable Logic Devices conference addresses the unique issues surrounding the use of PLDs for military and aerospace applications that must operate with a high degree of reliability, often in harsh environments. MAPLD will take place September 15-18 in Annapolis, Maryland.

Fault-Injection Upset Simulator Booth Demonstration
Demonstration of a beam upset simulator based on fault injection and using the same hardware as in-beam testing. The system, developed by the Radiation Test Consortium (XRTC), leverages the reconfigurability of Xilinx(R) FPGAs and is capable of injecting simulated upsets at a rate of over 3 million per minute while verifying design functionality.
