Xilinx has teamed up with ISR Technologies to develop an off-the-shelf prototyping-to-production kit that accelerates implementation of SDR (software-defined radio) modems. The SDR kit leverages the partial reconfiguration feature of Virtex-4 FPGAs, and complies with JTRS-mandated specifications, including the Software Communications Architecture (SCA).

Lattice Semiconductor launched the 90-nm generation of its FPGAs with the introduction of two product families. The LatticeSC (system chip) FPGAs combine high-speed I/O, SerDes, structured ASIC blocks and a high-performance fabric on a single device. And its second-generation ECP2 devices offer double the density at half the cost.
