SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX - News), the leading supplier of programmable system solutions, and the Software Defined Radio (SDR) Forum, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the development and deployment of software defined radio systems, today announced that Xilinx will participate in the SDR '02 Conference and Product Exposition on November 11-12, 2002 in San Diego, California. Sponsored by the SDR Forum, the conference will focus on the evolution of software defined radio technology and its integration into existing communication infrastructures. Dr. Chris Dick, chief DSP architect at Xilinx, will present two technical papers focusing on the use of FPGAs for high performance DSP and software defined radio applications. For registration and conference information, please contact the SDR Forum at 315-736-2433 or visit www.sdrforum.org/sdr02/main.html."A major software defined radio challenge has been the lack of flexible, high performance hardware. Advances in FPGA technology have made them one of the major enabling technologies for modern software defined radios," said Allan Margulies, chief operating officer at the SDR Forum. "Xilinx is a recognized world leader in developing programmable logic, and their addition to the SDR '02 event will provide the SDR community with a comprehensive view into FPGAs for reconfigurable radios.""Xilinx is pleased to collaborate with the SDR Forum to accelerate software defined radio technology and its adoption into the marketplace," said Chris Dick. "Xilinx is committed to addressing the needs of high-performance DSP solutions with its Virtex-II(TM) Series FPGAs which are fast becoming an integral part of many software radios due to their tremendous signal processing capability."Xilinx Inc.Software Defined Radio (SDR) Forum
