New webinar | Are Memory bandwidth limits holding you back? Try HBM

by Observer toddp ‎07-05-2017 07:41 PM - edited ‎07-12-2017 06:21 PM

Got Memory Bandwidth Headaches? HBM is Right for You

Applications ranging from networking to video have seen memory bandwidth requirements increase by up to 10X, but the bandwidth offered by DDR has increased by just 20%. The resulting gap makes system design a huge challenge.


HBM-enabled FPGAs provide multi-Terabit-per-second memory bandwidth — 10X that of individually packaged FPGAs and SDRAMs – and can eliminate headaches from total system power, PCB area, and PCB routing complexity.


Xilinx now offers up to 8GB of stacked HBM on its production-proven Virtex® UltraScale+™ FPGAs, delivering massive memory bandwidth with advantages in cost, complexity, and power. Early access design tools are available today. Want to learn more?

Register for OpenCV on Zynq Webinar

by Observer toddp ‎06-13-2017 10:06 AM - edited ‎06-28-2017 08:12 AM

Date: July 12, 2017  | Time: 10:00 AM (PT) / 1:00 PM (ET) / 17:00 (GMT)


OpenCV libraries are widely used for algorithm prototyping by many leading technology companies and computer vision researchers. FPGAs can achieve unparalleled compute efficiency on complex algorithms like dense optical flow and stereo vision in only a few watts of power. However, unlocking these capabilities traditionally required hardware design expertise and use of languages like Verilog and  VHDL.


In this 40-minute webinar, Xilinx will present a new approach that enables designers to unleash the power of FPGAs using hardware-tuned OpenCV libraries, a familiar C/C++ development environment, and readily available hardware development platforms.
