Altera's Dr. Misha Burich to Present SDR Forum Keynote Address on FPGAs and System-Level Optimization

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
