Victor receives award from Yorbe Zhang, Head of APAC & Head of Content, ASPENCORE
Since his appointment to CEO in January, Victor has guided Xilinx’s transformation by tapping into new markets with new technology to help enable the adaptable intelligent world. Under his leadership, we announced the industry’s first Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP) and also unveiled Alveo, a new portfolio of powerful data center accelerator cards, among other milestones.
Adding to this excitement at the ceremony today, Xilinx’s Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC also won a WEAA award in the processor/DSP/FPGA category. The Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC family integrates key subsystems for multiband, multi-mode cellular radios and cable infrastructure into an SoC platform that contains a feature-rich 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and dual-core ARM Cortex-R5 based processing system.
