SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced the availability of three key connectivity IP cores that are vital for building programmable, flexible and cost effective 3G+/4G wireless base stations. Xilinx’s Serial RapidIO Gen 2 v1.2 Endpoint LogiCORE™ IP, JESD204 v1.1 LogiCORE IP , and CPRI v4.1 LogiCORE IP all support connectivity standards and will help developers address design challenges in building new wireless equipment with higher system capacities.

The growth in the number of wireless broadband data users and consumption demands is making today’s wireless infrastructure network inadequate. With mobile broadband users expected to grow from 560 million in 2010 to 2.1 billion in 2015* and average mobile broadband network connection speeds expected to grow from 1 Mbs in 2010 to 5 Mbs in 2015**, Xilinx’s LogiCORE IP cores will help overcome higher system bandwidth requirement challenges and enable lower cost, flexibility, and a higher level of integration.

The Serial RapidIO Gen 2 v1.2 Endpoint LogiCORE IP is designed to the RapidIO Trade Association’s RapidIO Gen 2.2 specification and is the industry’s first true Gen 2.2 soft IP core supporting line rates of up to 6.25G in 1x/2x/4x lane widths. Comprised of a highly flexible and optimized Serial RapidIO Physical Layer core and a Logical (I/O) and Transport layer core, this IP core is supported by 7 series and Virtex®-6 FPGAs and comes with a configurable buffer design, reference clock module, reset module, and configuration fabric reference design that allows flexibilitity in selection of functional blocks needed for a given application. The IP core also doubles the data bandwidth in FPGA/CPU/DSP multi-processor farms to implement complex algorithmic and signal processing functions in systems such as wireless infrastructure to accommodate ever increasing system data throughput.
