Nu Horizons Electronics Corp. and AMIRIX Systems Inc. Announce North American Partnership to Distribute High End FPGA Development Boards Powered by Xilinx Virtex-II Pro Technology
Strategic Partnership Offers Time-to-Market Advantages by Providing Enhanced Embedded Platform System Solutions for Customers
Nu Horizons Electronics Corp., a leading distributor of high technology active components, and AMIRIX Systems Inc., a provider of custom embedded systems design services, today announced a North American partnership agreement whereby Nu Horizons will distribute AMIRIX's PCI Platform FPGA Development Boards. Powered by the Virtex-II Pro, an FPGA technology from Xilinx.
The PCI Platform FPGA Development Board, which also supplies peripheral hardware reference FPGA configuration and monitor software, is used with Xilinx's Embedded Development Kit (EDK) to help industry OEMs explore FPGA embedded systems solutions based on the IBM PowerPC 405 processor core. These processor cores are used in the Virtex-II Pro which is bringing system level integration, or system-on-chip (SoC), to programmable logic.
For more than twenty years, AMIRIX has been providing OEMs throughout North America with product solutions and enhancements that incorporate high performance circuit boards, FPGAs and embedded software. Electronic design services include architectural system design, detailed system design and implementation, prototype and production manufacturing, system integration, and system redesign. AMIRIX's considerable knowledge and IP related to Platform FPGA technology - particularly the emerging Virtex-II Pro - led to the development of the PCI Platform FPGA Development Board.
