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.
Adaptability is a word that we use frequently at Xilinx. It’s a word that holds more meaning today than perhaps ever before. The Xilinx family—our employees, our valued customers, our partners, —have defined adaptability and flexibility during this trying time. We’re doing everything we can to support our greater community as we navigate this rapidly-evolving situation.
Rich wireless services—ranging from VR/AR media offerings to connected cars and industrial IoT devices—will become a reality sooner than anticipated throughout Europe, thanks to the efforts of Telefónica and Xilinx. The multi-national telecoms carrier has brought together Xilinx and a number of leading hardware and software companies in its quest to disrupt the market and accelerate the development of open radio-access network (O-RAN) technologies in its 4G and 5G wireless networks.
In the last five years there has been unprecedented traction for FPGAs to accelerate a wide range of enterprise and research applications in areas as diverse as genomics, AI inference, large-scale business analytics, in-house EDA, and video transcoding, among others.
Last month at the Xilinx Developer Forum (XDF) Americas 2019, Xilinx CEO Victor Peng was joined on stage by Gadi Hutt, Senior Director of Business Development at Amazon Web Services, and Vin Sharma, Head of Engineering for Amazon Sagemaker Neo and AWS AI, to discuss how leading companies are benefiting from the AWS and Xilinx technology partnership.
The lines between traditional supercomputers, or high-performance computing (HPC) systems, running complex science and engineering applications have blurred with the advent of cloud computing, AI and data analytics.
What are the origins of the universe? What is matter and energy? In a quest to answer the world’s most challenging scientific questions, a consortium of some 20,000 scientists at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, is attempting to reconstruct the origin of the universe.
Our 3rd annual Xilinx Developer Forum (XDF) 2019 kicked off today with our CEO Victor Peng’s opening keynote, addressing the more than 1,300 customers, partners, developers, media and Xilinx employees in attendance.
When you think of processing performance, storage is not the first thing that comes to mind. But, if you’re handling massive amounts of large data sets, bandwidth at every step will impact how quickly and efficiently you can get the job done.
A central theme at Tuesday’s AI Design Forum, part of SEMICON West held in San Francisco this week, was how the semiconductor industry is reacting to the slowing of Moore’s Law, and how design innovations augmenting performance are enabling powerful, data-intensive applications in the areas of AI, IoT, 5G, big data and automation.
We’re constantly on the lookout for smart people to help drive innovation inside and out of the organization. Today, we’re extremely happy to announce Mini Khroad as Xilinx’s new SVP of Human Resources and Chief People Officer (CPO) to support our continued growth and evolution.
Innovation is the name of the game here at Xilinx, where we develop the cutting-edge tech behind the emerging technologies that consumers and enterprises are most excited see come to market—from 5G networks and smarter, faster data centers, to 8K video streaming and autonomous vehicles.
Today, we are excited to announce that we have acquired NGCodec. NGCodec offers a powerful, differentiated video encoding technology that – when paired with a Xilinx acceleration platform – delivers greater visual quality at lower bandwidth requirements than any other solution in the market.
In just five short years, we have designed and engineered, taped out and shipped our first Versal ACAP devices, the 7nm Versal AI Core series and Versal Prime series, to multiple tier one customers through our early access program.
We’re honored to have been selected by China Electronic Market (CEM) Magazine for multiple 2018 China Most Competitive Products Editors’ Choice Awards. Our ADAS Solution won the Editors’ Choice Award in the “Most Competitive Automotive Electronic Solution” category, while our RFSoC won the Editor’s Choice for the “Most Competitive FPGA Product”.
Our strong momentum in the data center and with China’s leading server vendors continues with Huawei‘s recent announcement of its FusionServer Pro series servers, the new intelligent servers, in Beijing on April 3.
Chalk up another key data center server win for Xilinx. Inspur, the leading server vendor in China and #3 provider globally, has just announced its stamp of approval for our Xilinx Alveo U200 and U250 accelerator cards.
