ZTE designs packet-based multiservice
bearer platform using Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGAs
Xilinx, Inc. has announced that ZTE Corp., has designed
its packet-based multiservice bearer platform using Xilinx
Virtex-6 FPGAs, enabling 100G Ethernet service deployment.
ZTE cites superior Virtex-6 FPGA performance, low power
consumption and flexibility as key contributors to its success
in getting to market in record time to establish a technology
lead in the fiercely competitive market for carrier, enterprise
and data center network solutions, according to Xilinx.
"As cloud computing, mobile Internet and high-definition
services drive global demand for steep increases in data
bandwidth, ZTE is commanding a market and technology edge
over our rivals in next-generation, ultra-high-speed routing,"
said Zhai HongJian, director of the IPTN hardware department
at ZTE Corp. "Like ZTE, Xilinx has a proven track record
of technology innovation. Virtex-6 met the stringent performance
and power specification for our IPTN design, while delivering
a level of flexibility that will enable our customers to
quickly and easily address evolving standards and deploy
new services. Looking ahead, our design teams are excited
about the tremendous potential for ZTE as an early adopter
of Xilinx 28nm 7 series FPGAs."
Xilinx, Inc. has also announced that EIZO NANAO CORPORATION
has designed Xilinx Spartan6 FPGAs into its 23-inch EIZO
FORIS FS2332 color LCD (liquid crystal display) monitors
for home entertainment. Xilinx says it is the first model
to incorporate EIZO's proprietary Smart Resolution technology,
which analyzes and adjusts imagery in real time to deliver
higher resolution, more natural images.
The FORIS FS2332 is the successor to the FORIS FS2331,
a previous model in the FORIS range of LCD home entertainment
monitors. The new monitor features a 23-inch high-resolution,
full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) LCD panel with a non-glare
IPS (in-plane switching) panel with a wide viewing angle,
10-bit gamma correction, approximately 16.77 million full-color
display combined with an energy-saving LED backlight, and
dual HDMI inputs for connecting up to four devices at once.
