SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX - news), today announced the immediate availability of 22 new and enhanced LogiCORE(TM) products for use with its Virtex-II(TM) family of FPGAs. New cores in the release include a Digital Down Converter (DDC), a CORDIC, a Multiply-Accumulate-based Finite Impulse Response (MAC FIR) Filter, a High-Performance 64-, 256-, 1024-point Complex Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)/Inverse FFT and a 2-D Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT). Several enhanced cores in the release include a Reed-Solomon Encoder and Decoder, a Convolutional Encoder, a General Purpose Viterbi Decoder, and an Interleaver/De-interleaver. When used with Xilinx's extensive library of existing IP, these new and enhanced parameterizable cores help digital signal processing (DSP) designers to build highly configurable systems for wireless and wireline communication systems. "With the release of the highly configurable DDC, Xilinx is adding value to our customers by providing more complex IP for our Virtex-II Platform FPGAs," said David Squires, director of the Xilinx DSP Center of Excellence. "The quality of the enhanced Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) exceeds anything that's available today for configurable logic. It's large dynamic range of 115dB, makes it ideal for use in digital transmitters and receivers." Xilinx Inc.
