Xilinx is Processing at ESC Silicon Valley 2007

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 22 - Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX) today announced that its full range of embedded processing and XtremeDSP(TM) solutions, including new silicon and software products debuted for the first time, will be showcased at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) in Silicon Valley. Featured events include hands-on workshops, technical presentations and product demonstrations.

An ESC attendee favorite, the Xilinx-hosted workshops enable designers to experience first-hand the power and flexibility of Xilinx Virtex(TM) and Spartan(TM) Platform FPGAs for embedded system and DSP applications. Industry experts from Xilinx and its ecosystem partners are also presenting ESC technical sessions on multi-processor architectures, reconfigurability for embedded system development, high-speed communication protocols, and high-performance DSP design.
