Decision Based on Success with Virtex-5 FPGAs for Current Generation Matrix1000 Prototyping System and Logicview Hardware Emulation Platform
BEIJING, July 5, 2011 -- Xilinx, Inc. today announced that Logicview Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. has selected Virtex®-6 FPGAs for the company's next-generation prototyping system and hardware emulation platform slated for introduction in early 2012.
LogicView is a leading supplier of ultra-large-scale system-on-a-chip development and verification platforms that drastically shorten research and development cycles through geometric-level acceleration, high-speed communications, total signal visibility and automatic partitioning. Logicview has built two generations of its industry leading products using Xilinx programmable platforms, including the company's popular Matrix 1000 Prototyping System and Logicview Emulation Platform which were both designed with Virtex-5 LXT and FXT FPGAs.
"Since our founding in 2008, Logicview has enjoyed stellar service and support from Xilinx and Avnet, enabling us rapidly bring innovative new products to market with increased capacity, interconnectivity, speed and reliability," said Liu Jianguan, chief technical director of Logicview Electronic. "For our current line of prototyping and emulation platforms, we built upon the Logicview architecture to exploit all of the advantages of Virtex-5, making full use of hard cores, PCIe endpoint modules, 6.5 Gbps high-speed serial transceivers and dynamic reconfigurable technology.
"With Virtex-6, we look forward to taking things to the next level for ultra-high-performance SoC design and verification by deploying a powerful combination of programmability, integrated blocks for digital signal processing, memory, and high-speed transceiver capabilities in our next generation platforms."
Added Zhang Yuqing, marketing and application director for Xilinx Asia Pacific, "The breakthroughs in speed, communications and capacity achieved by Logicview Electronic with Xilinx FPGAs have been truly remarkable. We look forward to many more breakthroughs in the future as the company migrates to 6 and 7 series FPGAs."
