SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- What: Dr. Misha Burich, Altera Corporation's (NASDAQ: ALTR) senior vice president of software and systems engineering, will deliver the keynote address at SDR Forum this year. He will discuss FPGA design methodologies for system-level optimization within military and wireless applications. These FPGA-based methodologies enable designers to focus on refining design at the system level while streamlining design implementation. They extend the modern back-end register transfer level (RTL) design flow used for FPGAs by integrating higher-level languages and tools, embedded processors and intellectual property (IP) cores. Technical experts from Altera will also deliver presentations on power management, hardware acceleration and design security. In addition, Altera will be showcasing the following demonstrations in booth 211 on the exhibition floor: -- A reconfigurable multi-standard equalizer created using high-level FPGA design methodologies -- A WiMAX platform utilizing the hardware co-simulation feature of Altera's DSP Builder design software to verify operation of the RTL reference design from a system-level perspective When: Keynote address, Tuesday, November 15, 2005 at 8:30 a.m. Agenda: Tuesday, November 15, 2005 8:30 - 9:20 a.m. Keynote Address: FPGA and Structured ASIC Design Royal Ballroom Methodologies for SDR Applications Dr. Misha Burich, Senior Vice President of Software & Systems Engineering 1:30 - 4:00 p.m. Paper: Low-Power Software-Defined Radio Using FPGAs Plaza Terrace Joel Seely, Technical Manager Thursday, November 17, 2005 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. Paper: Power Comparison of Architectural Choices Plaza Terrace on Waveform Development Joel Seely, Technical Manager 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. Paper: Design Security with Waveforms Royal Ballroom A Jie Feng, Product Line Manager 1:30 - 4:00 p.m. Paper: The Use of Hardware Acceleration in SDR Plaza Terrace Waveforms David Lau, Software Engineer Where: Hyatt Regency Orange County 11999 Harbor Blvd. Booth 211 Garden Grove, CA 92840 For additional show information visit: www.sdrforum.org/sdr05/main.html Contact: Bruce Fienberg Altera Corporation 408-544-6397 Email Contact
