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)
Xilinx plays with 3D packaging since 2008
Victor Peng, the CEO of Xilinx, has just announced that the 35 billion transistor Versal is a monolithic chip. Without saying the exact number, he did mention that at 7nm, the Versal 7nm 35 billion transistor chip is smaller than traditional GPUs.
Datacenter Accelerator against theft
Xilinx and SK Telecom announced that SK Telecom had adopted Xilinx Alveo Datacenter Accelerator cards. The cards have an important job to power a real-time AI-based physical intrusion and theft detection service.
7nm up and running
Last year Victor Peng CEO of Xilinx announced a 7nm ACAP platform and today we had a chance to see the chip as well as the development board on the stage.
Adaptive intelligent world
Last year was the first time that Xilinx held a massive Xilinx Developers forum, and on October 1 and 2, the company plans the annual event over again. Victor Peng, President, and Chief Executive Officer is expected to give us an update on adaptable intelligent world vision.
35 billion transistors in 16nm
The master of FPGAs has launched the world’s highest capacity FPGA ever designed. For those who didn’t pay attention in computer science class, FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) is the hardware programmable chip that is used for chip emulation, test, measurement, compute, networking, aerospace and defense and many other tasks including AI.
Wins against Xeon and Tesla
Xilinx has a data center first strategy that Victor Peng and his team are executing flawlessly so far, and part of that plan is to launch an adaptable compute, network and storage card and call it Alveo U50.
SmartNIC intelligent NIC
The 'datacenter first' strategy at Xilinx required certain laser-sharp acquisitions. After the Deephi acquisition focused on the AI and ML, the company just closed another key strategy acquisition of a smart NIC company by the name of Solarflare.
5G makes unlimited data affordable
Liam Madden, EVP and GM at Xilinx of the wired and wireless group, painted an excellent picture why 5G will be so successful in solving a data hunger problem.
7nm first adaptive compute platform
Xilinx has confirmed that the Versal, product developed under Everest condemned was taped out last year, and today the company has confirmed that the first tier-one customers are getting the first Versal AI core products.
