Xilinx Inc., a provider of complete programmable logic solutions, has joined IMEC's latest industrial affiliation program (IIAP) that focuses on technology for reconfigurable systems. IMEC is one of Europe's largest independent research center for microelectronics and enabling technologies for ICT systems. Xilinx is the first company to join the program.

IMEC and Xilinx Research Labs will collaborate in developing a programming environment for reconfigurable systems based on the VIRTEX-II Pro devices, as well as future devices. This programming infrastructure is expected to provide support for seamless hardware/software multitasking in future reconfigurable computing platforms.

"We are very pleased that only three months after the launch of our reconfigurable computing program, Xilinx has joined us as the first member. This proves the market potential of reconfigurable platforms and demonstrates the industrial interest in developing an ease-of-use design technology for the programming of heterogeneous reconfigurable platforms," said Dr. Rudy Lauwereins, VP of IMEC's division on design technology for integrated information and communications systems.
