With automotive-tech playing an increasingly larger role at CES, Xilinx made certain to be visible throughout the week-long event. At this year’s show, we were on a roll, issuing several news announcements relative to Xilinx technology enabling artificial intelligence (AI) acceleration, automated driving (AD) and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) with our automotive partners and customers. Our products were also featured in demos on the show floor.

Continuing the impressive momentum Xilinx has made in automotive in 2018—including last week’s announcement with Daimler—today we are extremely proud to announce a new design win in China with BYD, the world’s largest manufacturer of electric vehicles and batteries and a global leader in battery-electric buses with more than 45,000 buses in service across 300 cities, 50 countries and six continents. BYD is the first OEM in China to begin mass production of its front-camera advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) technology using the Xilinx Zynq SoCs, which will be going into its newest-generation commercial and passenger cars.

Following on the heels of XDF San Jose and Beijing, this week’s XDF Frankfurt, which took place Monday, got off to an eventful start. A German rail workers’ strike happened to coincide with the event so it proved extra challenging for those traveling. But for the attendees who made it, they were treated to a keynote by Xilinx CTO Ivo Bolsens with special on-stage appearances by marquee companies - Germany-based Daimler (see “Daimler joins Xilinx at XDF Frankfurt to Disclose its new AI Interior Technology”) and Sweden-based Ericsson.

When the progenitors of Ethernet at Xerox PARC created their first (3Mb/s) version in the late 1970s, they focused their efforts on connectivity, and paid little attention to network latency or throughput. Network nodes back then were humans at workstations and laser printers, and nobody cared if packets interfered with one another in transit, and had to be retransmitted many times before reaching their destinations. Mixing long and short packets on the network resulted in long delays for short packets, as they waited for longer packets to go by, in much the same way as autos at a railroad crossing wait for a train to pass before they can get to the other side.

Fast forward to today, when Ethernet speeds have accelerated significantly. The higher speeds greatly enhance capacity, but do little to manage latency or optimize bandwidth. It’s still OK to drop and retransmit packets in heavily loaded situations. Realizing that this would limit the utility of Ethernet in applications that require precise and deterministic timing, the IEEE 802 committee that oversees Ethernet specifications created a new set of sub-standards collectively referred to as “Time Sensitive Networking (TSN),” that allow various classes of network traffic to share a common link.

At today’s Xilinx Developer Forum in San Jose, Calif., our CEO, Victor Peng was joined by the AMD CTO Mark Papermaster for a Guinness. But not the kind that comes in a pint – the kind that comes in a record book.* 

The companies revealed that AMD and Xilinx have been jointly working to connect AMD EPYC CPUs and the new Xilinx Alveo line of acceleration cards for high-performance, real-time AI inference processing. To back it up, they revealed a world-record* 30,000 images per-second inference throughput!

Connect. Learn. Share. Those are three key activities of XDF. XDF stands for the Xilinx Developer Forum and we are thrilled to be holding our second annual XDF this coming October in San Jose, Calif., with two other regional XDFs following in Beijing and Frankfurt. 

This year’s XDF will be bigger and better than ever before. It will be held at the beautiful Fairmont San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley on Oct. 1 and 2 and is designed for those that have used Xilinx products before as well as those who are new or just curious about Xilinx’s adaptable and intelligent technology. XDF will offer more than 50 technical sessions, 20 hours of hands-on developer labs and tutorials, plus over 40 exhibitor demos.

With the continuing advance of cloud computing, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and other drivers of computing demand, enterprises managing huge exabyte-scale data centers need to move more and more data faster and faster. One secret to handling that traffic growth is to bring new data acceleration capabilities closer to the data itself.

That’s the concept advanced by Manish Muthal, the Vice President of Data Center Marketing here at Xilinx, in a keynote address he delivered Aug. 8 at the 2018 Flash Memory Summit held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley.

While we haven’t always been loudly honking our own car horn as we should, Xilinx has a strong pedigree in automotive. For more than 12 years, we’ve shipped over 40 million cumulative units to automakers and Tier 1 automotive suppliers. In the majority of recent deployments, Xilinx devices are being used by Tier 1s to provide processing power for the camera and sensor systems they are developing for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles.

Xilinx, as one of the creators of field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology for integrated-circuit design, has long embraced high-level synthesis (HLS) as an automated design process that interprets a desired behavior in order to create hardware that delivers that behavior. Xilinx has just introduced a book that clearly explains the process of creating an optimized hardware design using HL
