SAN JOSE, CA -- Xilinx, Inc. announces the availability of the winter 2015 issue of Xcell Software Journal - a quarterly magazine dedicated to software developers and embedded systems developers. This publication is ideal for developers programming in high level languages, such as C/C++ and OpenCL, so they can harness the orders of magnitude performance per watt improvements of Xilinx All Programmable devices over traditional off-the-shelf platforms.
In this issue's cover story, Xilinx DSP Specialist FAE Olivier Tremois details a C/C++ methodology he employed using Xilinx's SDSoC™ development environment to optimize a vision system implemented in a Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC. The issue also includes a rich set of feature articles. In one, Adam Taylor walks through how to use SDSoC to accelerate AES256 encryption. In another article, engineers at Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp. describe how they use Xilinx's SDNet™ development environment to quickly build innovative SDN equipment. The issue also includes features from National Instruments and PLDA describing how their respective development environments enable non-FPGA experts to leverage Xilinx All Programmable devices to quickly create innovative products.
Xcell Software Journal is available as a one-click PDF download or can be read online in iPad/iPod-compatible ISSUU electronic magazine format.
