All Programmable Solutions Displayed throughout Embedded World

As part of the ARM® Connected Community®, Xilinx is leveraging the strength of
the ARM ecosystem to provide a complete solution, from design to manufacture
and end use. Additionally, more than 20 Xilinx Alliance Program members,
comprised of IP providers, EDA vendors, embedded software providers, system
integrators, and hardware suppliers, will be demonstrating the power of
Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs based on multiple ARM technologies throughout
the show floor.


  oDriver Assistance Platforms – Automotive solutions from Xilinx and Xylon
    will show developers how to consolidate multiple functions in a single
    Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC, through applications such as lane
    departure warning and blind spot detection, as well as a 360-degree
    surround vision and rear view camera system.
  oBiomedical Sensors – A biomedical sensing platform developed by Xilinx and
    Topic, which normally requires a desktop PC, can be reduced to a compact
    display plus small add-on card connected to the sensor using the Zynq-7000
    All Programmable SoC.
  oMachine Vision System –  The high-speed parallel signal processing
    capabilities of the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC, with Missing Link
    Electronics, illustrates how HD video can be processed efficiently and how
    the high performance analytics capability can perform object recognition
    to support high performance machine vision applications.
  oMulti-OS System Using Hypervisor –  Xilinx and SYSGO demonstrate the
    simultaneous execution of four operating systems (two RTOS and two Linux
    instances) on a single Zynq-7000 device.
  oMotor/Motion Control –  Xilinx and QDESYS, will demo the Zynq-7000 All
    Programmable SoC Intelligent Drives Platform implementing high precision,
    low noise multi-axis motor control along with ethernet communications
    while running QNX real-time operating systems, showcasing a true single
    chip drive system.
  oReal-Time Industrial Ethernet –  Demonstrates flexible real-time
    industrial networking protocols in a single Zynq-7000 device, implementing
    either EtherCAT or POWERLINK.
  oReliable Ethernet – Xilinx and SOC-e will demonstrate reliable and
    fault-tolerant Ethernet communications with precision timing for energy
    market applications, implementing the Seamless Redundancy Protocol and
    Parallel Redundancy Protocol in the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC.
  oPLC – Demonstrates a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) implemented on
    the Zynq-7000 platform, controlling various inputs and output devices.
    This PLC platform is programmed using the IEC61131-3 compliant MULTIPROG
    programmer from EKWSoftware.
  oReal-Time Video Engine – The Real-Time Video Engine, developed with
    OmniTek, illustrates the Zynq-7045 device with hardened PCIe® core
    processing up to 4 streams of 1080p HD video in real-time. The
    demonstration also highlights various compute intensive video functions
    such as real-time scaling and alpha-blending.
  oH.264 Encoder –  Xilinx and A2E will also demonstrate the Zynq-7020 device
    implementing the horsepower demanding 1080p30 H.264 encoder for video
    surveillance, medical, and entertainment systems.
