What: MILCOM 2011

Where: Baltimore, MD, Baltimore Convention Center, Booth #914

When: Conference & Exhibits – November 7-10, 2011

Exhibition Demos

Monday – Thursday, November 7-10

Android Running on the Zynq-7000 EPP Emulation Platform

  • Xilinx will show a demonstration of the Zynq-7000 EPP Emulation Platform running the Android 2.2 operating environment.

Digital Pre-Distortion (DPD)

  • Xilinx will demonstrate a Virtex-6 FPGA running a DPD algorithm, which pre-distorts the modulation signal to a radio power amplifier (PA) such that it corrects for the natural distortion introduced by PA. Attendees will learn how pre-distortion allows the PA to be operated in a non-linear region of operation, which increases the PA power efficiency.

Beam Forming

  • Xilinx will also demonstrate a Virtex-6 FPGA running a beam forming algorithm, which shows how the beam forming application can enhance receive signals by combing phase and amplitude information from multiple antennas to reduce receive sensitivity. Xilinx will highlight how beam forming algorithms need FPGA logic for high bandwidth signal processing.

Defense-grade, Space-grade FPGAs

  • Xilinx will also show Virtex-4QV, Virtex-5QV, Virtex-6Q and Spartan®-6Q FPGAs and will highlight unique value propositions such as rad-hard by design, full temperature range testing, ruggedized packaging and anti-counterfeiting for reconfigurable devices.  


MILCOM 2011 gives industry the opportunity to promote communications technologies and services to commanders from all branches of the armed forces, Department of Defense, federal government, and the heads of multi-national forces from around the globe.
