AMSTERDAM, Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) and Certified Xilinx Alliance Program Member, OmniTek, launched a ground-breaking real-time video processing platform at IBC 2012 (Hall 10, Stand #10.B25) today that gives broadcast equipment OEMs new opportunities to accelerate their design productivity while reaching higher levels of performance through programmable system integration. Powered by Xilinx's ARM®-based Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC, the OmniTek Zynq-7000 SoC Broadcast Development Kit represents a tremendous opportunity for broadcast OEMs to now combine their own hardware and software IP (intellectual property) with this high-performance, reprogrammable video processing platform for creating unique and differentiated broadcast equipment that can easily adapt to changing standards.
"Delivering value to broadcasters in a world of constantly changing standards is an increasingly difficult task for manufacturers that we and OmniTek are addressing with the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC platform," said Ben Runyan, director of broadcast and consumer segment marketing at Xilinx. "Leveraging the hardware and software programmability of our Zynq-7000 family, the platform gives our customers unprecedented capabilities for developing next-generation video solutions."Xilinx's Zynq-7000 family is the industry's first SoC family to incorporate an ARM dual-core Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processing system with tightly coupled programmable logic on a single die. This combination dramatically increases performance and thus improves processing-intensive real-time video applications. Zynq-7000 devices are all programmable – meaning the hardware, software and I/O are each fully programmable – which enables OEMs to accelerate time-to-market, focus on product innovation and reprogram their products to meet changing standards and specifications. "The unique architecture of the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC development environment in broadcast applications enables OEMs to achieve their goals of accelerating the time-to-market for their next-generation of products, while incorporating unique features and reducing the bill-of-materials (BOM) of their system," said Roger Fawcett, managing director of OmniTek. "Complementing this, the performance and reprogrammability of Zynq-7000 devices enables us to address broadcasters' requirements to support performance-intensive real-time applications that need to be 'future proof' to adapt to changing industry standards and specifications." Broadcast equipment OEMs can also reduce the BOM costs for their equipment using a single Zynq-7000 device rather than multiple chips to achieve their processing requirements. Additionally, Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC-based products consume less power compared to multiple chip equivalents, thanks to the tight integration between the ARM processing system and 28nm programmable logic.
