SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Xilinx, Inc., (NASDAQ:XLNX), today announced its successful collaboration with Altra Broadband, a broadband communications company, to deliver a high-performance Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Inverse Fast Fourier Transform (IFFT) solution for use in Virtex-II™ Platform FPGAs. The pipelined architecture allows two-microsecond throughput required for advanced signal processing in gigabit-speed networking subsystems manufactured by Altra Broadband. "The ability to reprogram the Virtex-II FPGA allows us to rapidly implement advanced signaling methods on fiber, coax, and wireless channels at gigabit data rates," said Dr. Lawrence Williams, Altra Broadband's Vice President of Technology. "This flexibility combined with the complete XtremeDSP initiative from Xilinx, accelerates development of new products to significantly boost data rates on existing communications infrastructures."
