System allows company to quickly prototype ASSP designs & jumpstart software development
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 16, 2010 — (PRNewswire) — Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) and ST-Ericsson, a world leader in wireless platforms and semiconductors, today announced that ST-Ericsson is developing a next-generation PEPS-2 application-specific standard product (ASSP) prototyping platform based on Xilinx's high performance Virtex®-6 FPGAs.
The new platform for emulation, prototyping and software development will include up to six high performance Virtex-6 FPGAs and will allow software development prior to ASSP silicon availability. ST-Ericsson deployed its first generation PEPS system, which included six Virtex-4 FPGAs, to develop its highly acclaimed U8500 Smartphone Platform.
The upcoming PEPS-2 system will allow customers to develop even larger and more complex ASSP platforms and run the system faster, with much lower power, due to the Virtex-6 FPGAs.
