Demonstrations in Xilinx's booth, H6-200, will highlight how its Zynq-7000 All
Programmable SoCs provide developers with solutions to the extreme bandwidth,
smart vision, ubiquitous computing and security/safety needs of
next-generation industrial automation applications. Industrial automation
experts from Xilinx and its Alliance Program members will be on hand to talk
about Xilinx's extensive development and implementation infrastructure that
includes industrial-specific platforms, IP cores and kits to build better
systems, faster, with fewer chips.


  oZynq-7000 All Programmable SoC Intelligent Drives Platform – This is a
    high-precision, low noise multi-motors electrical drive demonstration that
    shows a significant system performance improvement when compared to a
    conventional microprocessor or DSP implementation using the Xilinx®
    Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. QDESYS, a Xilinx Alliance Program member,
    will demonstrate how its NETMOT IP cores on Xilinx SoCs enable a scalable,
    cost-effective motor control for multiple motors while maintaining
    flexibility through reprogrammability.
  oZynq-7000 SoM Embedded Processing Platform - The Zynq-7000 SoM (System on
    Module) embedded processing module from ITR demonstrates the capability
    and flexibility of Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs for rapid
    integration of industrial networking interfaces into an industrial
    automation subsystem.
  oZynq-7000 All Programmable SoC POWERLINK Evaluation Platform - This
    industrial networking demonstration showcases POWERLINK master running on
    a Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC taking advantage of an Open POWERLINK
    stack and Linux operating systems running on a feature-rich ARM® dual-core
    Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processor.
  oIEC61508 Safety Control System and Isolation Design Flow - The Avnet
    Spartan®-6 FPGA Evaluation Kit hosts a safety-oriented motor control
    system based on two Xilinx MicroBlaze™ processors running in dual-core
    lockstepping mode that ensures safety system functionality.
  oFPGA-based Synchronization and Redundancy Platform – An  energy market
    application with a high availability seamless redundancy (HSR)-parallel
    redundancy protocol (PRP) switch from Xilinx Alliance Program member SOC-e
    implements high-availability, seamless redundancy and parallel redundancy
    protocols for reliable and redundant Ethernet communications based on a
    Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA.
