ISE with Low Memory Requirements and New OS Support
Xilinx announced the latest release of its widely-used design solution. Improvements in the ISE 9.2i release reduce memory requirements by an average of 27 percent while providing expanded support for Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows XP x64, and Red Hat Enterprise WS 5.0 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. To simplify multi-rate DSP designs with a large number of clocks typically found in wireless and video applications, ISE 9.2i software features exceptional place and route and clock algorithms. This said to cut implementation runtimes by up to 6X while maintaining exact design preservation of unchanged logic. This release also provides an advanced design for the latest line of Xilinx 65nm Virtex-5 high-performance FPGAs and 90 nm Spartan-3 generation high volume FPGAs.
