I don’t know why, but suddenly I’m being bombarded with press releases from the folks at Xilinx.
It started with the news about their participation at the forthcoming IBC 2011 (Click Here to see this announcement).
This was followed by news about Tecnoroll BMB S.r.l. – a design house that specializes in digital hardware and software solutions for broadcast and consumer applications. A short version of this announcement is as follows:
Longtime customer Tecnoroll BMB S.r.l. has designed Spartan-6 FPGAs into its new FLEXMod 3.0 digital video broadcast module. Slated for announcement at IBC 2011 in Amsterdam, the compact, multi-standard modulation platform can be used as a standalone hardware platform or integrated into a customer's end product for standard and high-definition broadcast applications, including video distribution systems and set top boxes.
And then, almost immediately, my Inbox “pinged” me again with news about SIGMA Corporation
– a leading researcher, developer, manufacturer and service provider of some of the world's most impressive lines of lenses, cameras and flashes. A short version of this announcement is as follows:
Longtime customer, SIGMA Corp., has designed Spartan-6 into its flagship digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera, the SIGMA SD1, for professional and enthusiast photographers. Shipping since June, the new 46-megapixel camera delivers robustness in a splash-proof and dust-proof body, providing high-definition and high resolution images.
I tell you, it’s looking like we’re going to be seeing a busy time in Programmable Logic Space (where no one can hear you scream)…
