Xilinx Inc. is all set to showcase its Targeted Design Platforms for cellular infrastructures by using FPGAs that allow global wireless communications with lower cost and power solutions for radio, baseband, and connectivity at the Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, from Feb. 14C17.

According to the company, the market-specific platforms bring together the latest hardware, software, and IP innovations to assist network infrastructure vendors and operators reduce capital expenditures, operating expenses, as well as development costs for software-defined radio and 3/4G multimode base stations.

In alliance with its partners, Xilinx shall exhibit wireless development environments capable of addressing evolving standards and application requirements such as LTE baseband and multimode radio subsystems. Particularly, the exhibit shall feature the Xilinx Multi-mode Radio Targeted Design Platform with a Virtex-6 FPGA ML605 development board and connected via FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) connector to Analog Devices Inc.'s Mixed Signal Digital Pre-Distortion (MSDPD) System Board.

Xilinx has also worked with Envelope Tracking developer, Nujira, to add support for Nujira's Coolteq.h modulator. The design features Xilinx Crest Factor Reduction (CFR) and Digital Pre-Distortion (DPD) with a power amplifier that permits over 50 percent power amplifier efficiency. It also offers broad industry support for LTE, WiMax, WCDMA, CDMA2000, TD-SCDMA, and GSM standards.

Attendees shall have the opportunity to learn first-hand how they can jumpstart system development and customize designs based on application-specific requirements.

Additionally, the exhibit will also show LTE Baseband Targeted Design Platform revealing how FPGAs, tools and IP can be used to build an advanced Layer1 LTE implementation, lowering power dissipation, systems cost and development risk compared to programmable DSP based solutions.

Agilent Technologies' LTE VSA software shall be featured as part of the demonstration, indicating compatibility with 3GPP LTE standards.
