Most of us are still meeting with our co-workers via online video conferencing after the paradigm shift caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. You are probably not thinking much of what it takes to stream all the content and feeds from your meetings. But if you’re a data center operator you probably haven’t been getting a lot of sleep over the past year worrying about how to handle the unprecedented pandemic surge in video traffic.
Hello MARS...Congratulations to the amazing engineers and scientists at NASA and Jet Propulsion Labs (JPL) for a successful touchdown on the Mars Jezero Crater on February 18, 2021! We are so proud to be part of this mission with Xilinx FPGAs in the lander rover and instruments, including the vision processor to perform image processing optimization for the historic first images.
We are proud to announce Xilinx’s Dr. Gamal Refai-Ahmed has been named one of the newest Fellows by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Board of Directors. Becoming a fellow is IEEE’s highest accolade and it is recognized as a prestigious honor by the technical community.
Last week, we took out our crystal ball and looked at some of the trends, technologies and changes that we expect to be embraced by the auto industry in 2021. Today, we are shining a light on technologies and trends that we predict will have a significant impact on the 5G, data center, AI and software, healthcare and IIoT markets this year and beyond.
With 2020 now in the rearview mirror, we look forward to the new possibilities of the new year. At the beginning of each year, we like to take out our crystal ball and predict what we may see or hear about over the next 365 days.
We’re excited to announce that Xilinx recently joined the Confidential Computing Consortium (CCC) to help drive the effort to extend Confidential Computing into accelerators and SmartNIC. Before we dive into the details on why we joined the consortium, perhaps we should explain what Confidential Computing is, and what companies make up the Confidential Computing Consortium.
We are excited to launch a new Women in Technology (WIT) grant program with six leading universities across the globe. The WIT grant will fund programs designed to attract, develop, and engage more women to pursue professional careers in technology-focused roles.
The evolution of wireless standards has seen a dramatic increase in spectral efficiency and data rates as shown in the table below. New and complex modulation schemes along with increased bandwidth in the radio are delivering peak data rates of up to 1 Gbit/s for sub-6 GHz wireless access.
Earlier today the MLPerf organization released its latest round of machine learning (ML) inference benchmark results. Launched in 2018, MLPerf is made up of an open-source community of over 23 submitting organizations with the mission to define a suite of standardized ML benchmarks.
Technological innovations and artificial intelligence are revolutionizing the healthcare industry. To accelerate this trend, we’ve collaborated with NTT Disruption to develop an innovative Virtual Patient Observation (VPO) solution that detects and predicts patient actions and movements that could result in high-risk situations and automatically alerts doctors or nurses. The smart hospital solution is designed to improve the quality of patient care and overall experience while also making healthcare practitioners’ daily work easier and more efficient.
Are you planning to create tomorrow's most complex and innovative new technologies? We can help make your vision a reality. Today, we proudly announce that our largest FPGA, the Virtex UltraScale+ VU19P, is now generally available and shipping in production volumes to many customers.
Computational storage continues to gain attention as the performance benefits of processing data near where the data resides has been well established. Industry momentum is building and organizations like the Storage Networking Industry Association, or SNIA, are helping to define the how, what, where, and why of computational storage through the Compute, Memory, and Storage Initiative.
Earlier this year, we gave you a peek into our collaboration with Ouster, an innovator and worldwide leader in high-resolution light-detection and ranging (lidar) sensors. Today, we’re proud to share more about our breakthrough work together to further lidar technology.
We’re excited to announce the first Xilinx Adaptive Computing Challenge! We’re challenging independent developers and startups to utilize their unparalleled expertise to develop a creative design solution to accelerate workloads using the Vitis Unified Software Program and Vitis AI. The Xilinx Adaptive Computing Challenge is offering two different contests for developers and startups to solve real-world problems in a new and innovative way.
We are delighted to announce that Hasmukh Ranjan has joined Xilinx as Chief Information Officer (CIO). As CIO, Hasmukh will lead Xilinx’s world-class information technology group, and drive our internal IT strategy, systems, and processes in support of our mission to Build the Adaptable, Intelligent World.
Feeling the need for speed? Look no further. Today we’re proudly adding a one-of-a-kind speed-demon to our Virtex UltraScale+ line, a new high-bandwidth memory (HBM) device that moves large amounts of data very quickly, with low latency and minimal power requirements. The new Virtex UltraScale+ VU57P FPGA brings together a truly powerful set of capabilities ideal for the most demanding applications in the data center and wired and wireless communications.
Hardware accelerators have become commonplace in the data center and a host of new workloads are ripe for the advantages of FPGA acceleration and their greater computing efficiency. The rapidly growing interest in Machine Learning (ML) is driving the increasing adoption of FPGA accelerators in private, public, and hybrid cloud data center environments to accelerate this compute-intensive workload.
Establishing a world record is one way of saying, “This is the best we can do as humans; now, let’s all try to beat it.” From baseball, and the Guinness Book to the Olympics, we are continually striving to lift more, jump higher, or move faster. In business, the ability to react and adapt more quickly than your competitor has value.
The exponential growth of data demands smart and adaptable network and data center solutions that deliver maximum throughput, high data-processing capability and the flexibility to adapt to evolving connectivity standards. To meet all of these requirements and more, we unveiled today the newest member in our UltraScale+ FPGA portfolio, the Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU23P FPGA, delivering breakthrough performance for networking and storage applications.
With America establishing the Space Force, NASA planning to return us on the moon, and private spaceflight ramping up satellite launches, it’s clear the revival of space is well underway. There’s no doubt 2020 will be an exciting journey for space innovation and we’re thrilled to be ready for liftoff with our next generation space-grade FPGA.
It’s no secret that the flood of digital communications from email, messaging, social networking and other sources exasperates our daily lives. Enterprises, in particular, are overwhelmed with communications from inside and outside their organizations, with content that needs to be acted on in a timely manner. And today’s COVID-19 environment of resource constraints, social distancing, and working from home only compounds the problem.
As we all grapple with the personal and professional challenges of living through a pandemic, what’s keeping many of us going are the inspirational stories of how communities and businesses are coming together to deliver technology and innovative solutions to help fight COVID-19 and support relief efforts.
We’d like to shine a light on several of our customers that are stepping up to develop and deliver products and services that are helping in the prevention, detection, and treatment of COVID-19 and other diseases.
At Xilinx, we are deeply committed to doing our part in fighting COVID-19. In times of crisis, actions speak louder than words. I’m proud to announce that Xilinx has donated $1.1 million for COVID-19 crisis relief.
