Debut of Gametrac during CES
Xilinx and Gametrac Europe, a subsidiary of Tiger Telematics, announced a collaboration that resulted in the first working demonstration of Gametrac mobile entertainment device. The mobile entertainment device is on display in the Microsoft booth at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2004.

The Gametrac device offers a range of entertainment and information features, including games, multimedia messaging, MP3 music, MPEG4 movie playing, digital camera and GPRS connectivity to allow wide-area network gaming. The Gametrac also comes with a GPS chip for location based services. Based on the Windows CE .NET operating systems and an ARM9 400 MHz processor, the device comes packaged as a pocket-sized mobile device usable on five continents thanks to its GSM tri-band capability.

Gametrac contracted development to Plextek and Intrinsyc, both Xilinx AllianceCORE partners. The flexibility of Xilinx FPGAs was leveraged to develop working versions of the Gametrac device in record time. Plextek is working actively with Intrinsyc and other parties to provide a turn-key development service to Tiger Telematics for the development of the Gametrac product. Intrinsyc developed fully customized embedded software based on the Windows CE .NET operating system; telephony application software based on Intrinsyc's intellectual property, and provided systems integration services for the Gametrac demonstration model.
