Finalists will be selected by the NI judging panel from an application process. One winner will be chosen for the industry and student design teams categories. Judges will be looking for the best solutions that take advantage of FPGA resources to boost overall system performance. The winners will be chosen by a judging panel consisting of Xilinx participants.
“The commitment of Xilinx and National Instruments to engineering innovation have been fundamental to the success of each of our companies,” said Xilinx Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Vin Ratford. “This award is designed to identify and recognize the people who tap the power of programmable logic to create market-changing products and technologies that improve the quality of our everyday lives. FPGAs provide engineers the flexibility and freedom to develop products that stand apart, and we look forward to the groundbreaking designs that will be submitted for this award.”
The awards ceremony to honor winners will take place on August 2, 2011 at NIWeek 2011 Worldwide Graphical System Design Conference and Exhibition in Austin, Texas.
