Top-notch 20 nm Space-Grade FPGA
Computing and calculation are a tough job on the ground, not to mention in space, satellites, and Mars Rovers where they face radiation, limited space, and power constraints. Xilinx has just announced a top of the line 20 nm Space-Grade Radiation Tolerant (RT) Kintex UltraScale XQRKU060FPGA that it claims will offer 10X compute performance and reduce development time to launch from five to six to two to three years.
Establish Adaptive Compute Research Clusters XACC
Adaptive computing is the buzz word these days and Xilinx seems to be on top of it. With that in mind, Xilinx announced it is establishing Xilinx Adaptive Compute Clusters (XACC) at four of the world’s most prestigious universities
$3.16 billion, data center 22 percent revenue growth
The fiscal year 2020 (April 2019 to April 2020) was a challenging year for anyone trading with China due to the US government pressures on Huawei. Despite all these challenges, Xilinx managed to make $3.16 billion revenue or three percent higher, year over year.
Versal ACAP ideal for 5G
There is no doubt that Samsung is a big player in the 5G arena, both on the client and infrastructure side. Xilinx also managed to score an important 5G design win with its Xilinx Versal ACAP for worldwide 5G commercial deployments.
First of many
5G is a transformational technology that will change the decade and enable new scenarios as well as business models. With that in mind, Xilinx has just announced that with a few other industry players, it is building a next-generation wireless radio network to drive 5G innovation using open radio-access network (O-RAN) standards for Telefonica.
Healthcare clients prioritized
Xilinx is a company that is working hard in data centers around the world to support your home office, 5G networks, data centers, and even codecs in many streaming services many heavily use these days.
Xilinx solution to reduce cloud latency by 80 percent
The datacenter is exploding, and the number of global data center traffic will triple between 2016 and 2021. Datacenter to outside traffic doubled from two Exabytes in 2016 to four Exabytes in 2019, and by 2021 it is expected to grow to six Exabytes. Interestingly enough traffic within data centers is exploding, as it grew from five Exabytes in 2016 to 10 Exabytes in 2019, and by 2021 the expectations are that it will grow to 15 Exabytes.
Designed for high bandwidth core and 5G tasks
Imagine an FPGA that can replace 22 currently shipping FPGA Adapters and provide a high bandwidth needed for the Internet and 5G demand of the future? That seems the best way to visualize Versal Premium, as this is a product design to address the explosion of data and bandwidth growth.
Xilinx has scored a big result by providing mega-etailer Alibaba with AI Acceleration.
Reprogrammable automotive hardware for Tier 1 and OEM’s
Western readers are mostly focused on the automotive market of Europe, the USA, Japan and S Korea and in the last few years, China has become the automotive superpower. Automated Valet Parking and hardware necessary to make it a reality is highly complex, and Xilinx’s Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC (XAZU5EV) scored a hit with Baidu’s Apollo Computing Unit (ACU)
