Xilinx, Inc., the supplier of programmable chips, today announced a donation valued at US$330K to the Fudan University School of Microelectronics.
A full complement of the Xilinx programmable logic solutions–including design software, silicon and reference boards–will be incorporated into course curriculum and workshops focused on advanced digital electronic design.
The Xilinx University Program (XUP) donation will be used to equip a new Fudan-Xilinx lab with more than 50 workstations. The XUP contribution includes multiple seats of logic and embedded design software [ISE Foundation Software, Embedded Development Kit (EDK)], digital signal processing (DSP) software (System Generator for DSP) and in-circuit logic analysis tools (ChipScope Pro Logic Analyzer). Xilinx is also donating multi-media boards and demonstration boards equipped with Spartan II field programmable gate array (FPGA) devices and CoolRunner II complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs).
