Intelligence on board of trains and on the ground in wayside equipment makes traveling fast, safe, reliable, and comfortable. Controlling various features like doors, lighting, cameras, air conditioning, brakes, lavatories, and displays, to name a few, requires the right balance of computation performance, real-time capability, and reliability. Combined with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and connected sensors, processes in and around a cabin can be improved for the benefit of the passenger. Efficiency, durability, and safety can be optimized by advanced traction control with optimized motor control algorithms.
Xilinx Devices for Train and Wayside Applications
Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoCs and RFSoCs are ideal platform devices that can be used throughout a train and wayside applications. With their combination of Arm® processing systems, programmable logic, and architectural features for high safety targets and security in a networked environment, Xilinx SoCs are platform enablers for applications in modern trains and railways.
Deep Learning with IP or dedicated AI Engines in the Xilinx Versal™ ACAPs (AI Core series) supports the reduction of the number of components that enhance flexibility to maintain legacy features and add new functionality with the same device. The new Xilinx Vitis™ unified software platform with the proven Vivado® design suite allows development without changing engineering toolsets so that re-use and migration become easy.
Join the Webinar to Explore the Future of Trains and Railways
This webinar will show you how Xilinx SoCs support the needs for typical railway use cases. MIOS Elettronica specializes in solutions for railway applications and has active roles in standardization. MIOS Elettronica will present how Xilinx SoCs are used in existing products like communication gateways with a train communication network (TCN) and vehicle control units (VCU), event recorders, and protocol converters. Another presentation will come from Xilinx partner SoC-e, who is the premier supplier for networking IP for critical applications. SoC-e will show how to use modern technologies, including time-sensitive networking (TSN) for wayside signaling and real-time onboard communication. The Xilinx IIoT solution stack contributes implementations for advanced control, while the path to wireless communication with enhancements like beamforming using Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+™ RFSoC shows the way to the future.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
Use Xilinx SoCs with heterogenous processing and artificial intelligence for railway applications
Fulfill requirements from standards
Integrate robust networks with synchronization with modern Ethernet-based networks
Benefit from using a unified software environment (Vivado Design Suite and Vitis unified software platform)
