We’re proud to announce that our Versal AI Core series has been awarded Gold in the Embedded Computing category for the 2020 LEAP (Leadership in Engineering Achievement Program) Awards. The LEAP Awards celebrate the most innovative and forward-thinking products serving the design engineering space. The virtual award ceremony was held on October 5 and hosted by WTWH Media executives. 

The winners of the LEAP Awards were chosen by a distinguished independent judging panel of 14 OEM design engineers and academic professionals who were selected by WTWH Media’s editorial team. The judges narrowed down submissions to a select group of finalists before undergoing a meticulous final judging process to determine the winners for each category. Despite going against strong industry competitors, the Versal AI Core series device’s unparalleled capabilities were able to triumph with the top award in the embedded computing category.


The judges commented, “A game-changer for the next generation of networking electronics, medical imaging diagnostic instruments and any application needing state-of-the-art processing power. Congratulations!”
