Xilinx Announces Full Production Shipments of 7nm Versal AI Core and Versal Prime Series Devices

Ver­sal Pre­mi­um seri­es also hits mile­stone with first ship­ments to ear­ly access customers

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), the lea­der in adap­ti­ve com­pu­ting, today announ­ced that its Ver­sal™ AI Core and Ver­sal Prime seri­es devices are now ship­ping to cus­to­mers in full pro­duc­tion volu­mes. Addi­tio­nal­ly, the third seri­es in the Ver­sal port­fo­lio, Ver­sal Pre­mi­um, has now ship­ped to mul­ti­ple tier-one cus­to­mers through the company’s ear­ly access pro­gram. Ver­sal is the industry’s first adap­ti­ve com­pu­te acce­le­ra­ti­on plat­form (ACAP). Ver­sal ACAPs com­bi­ne sca­lar pro­ces­sing engi­nes, adap­ta­ble hard­ware engi­nes, intel­li­gent engi­nes with lea­ding-edge memo­ry and inter­fa­cing tech­no­lo­gies to deli­ver power­ful hete­ro­ge­ne­ous acce­le­ra­ti­on for any app­li­ca­ti­on bey­ond the capa­bi­li­ties of an FPGA.

Ver­sal AI Core and Prime Seri­es in Full Production

The Ver­sal AI Core seri­es deli­vers the hig­hest com­pu­te and lowest laten­cy in the Ver­sal port­fo­lio, enab­ling bre­akthrough AI infe­rence through­put and per­for­mance through its AI engi­nes. Ver­sal AI Core is opti­mi­zed for com­pu­te-inten­si­ve app­li­ca­ti­ons pri­ma­ri­ly for the data cen­ter, 5G wire­less, and A&D mar­kets, inclu­ding machi­ne lear­ning and advan­ced signal pro­ces­sing. Cus­to­mers have deploy­ed Ver­sal AI Core to acce­le­ra­te workloads such as 5G gNodeB base sta­ti­ons, satel­li­te-based broad­band ser­vices, and audio-video brid­ging in 3D immer­si­ve sta­di­um sports videos.

Ver­sal AI Core seri­es cus­to­mer Gilat enab­les satel­li­te-based mobi­le broad­band for in-flight and con­su­mer broad­band, and cel­lu­lar backhaul.

Gilat pro­vi­des lea­ding satel­li­te-based broad­band com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on solu­ti­ons in mul­ti­ple mar­ket seg­ments. We are exci­ted to be among the first cus­to­mers to adopt the Ver­sal AI Core seri­es. The embed­ded AI engi­ne tech­no­lo­gy is a key enab­ler, lea­ding to a mas­si­ve incre­a­se in through­put at lower power for Gilat’s next-genera­ti­on wide-band gate­way recei­vers. Incor­po­ra­ting the AI engi­ne tech­no­lo­gy fea­tured in the Ver­sal AI Core will pro­vi­de the fle­xi­bi­li­ty and per­for­mance requi­red by the gro­wing demand for incre­a­sed band­width and through­put in Gilat’s net­works,” says Noam Rosen­feld, seni­or vice pre­si­dent rese­arch & deve­lo­p­ment at Gilat Satel­li­te Networks.

The Ver­sal Prime seri­es is desi­gned for broad app­li­ca­bi­li­ty across mul­ti­ple mar­kets and opti­mi­zes con­nec­ti­vi­ty and in-line acce­le­ra­ti­on of a diver­se set of workloads. Cus­to­mers see suc­cess deploy­ing Ver­sal Prime seri­es for data cen­ter workloads such as sto­rage acce­le­ra­ti­on, fire­walls and other wired com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons app­li­ca­ti­ons, and satel­li­te-based broad­band ser­vices in aero­space & defen­se markets.

Ver­sal Pre­mi­um First Cus­to­mer Shipments

Ver­sal Pre­mi­um seri­es, fea­turing high­ly-inte­gra­ted and power-opti­mi­zed cores, has reached a signi­fi­cant mile­stone with ship­ments to mul­ti­ple tier-one cus­to­mers. Ver­sal Pre­mi­um sup­ports the mas­si­ve band­width, secu­ri­ty, and com­pu­te den­si­ty requi­red for next-genera­ti­on enter­pri­se and cloud deploy­ment. Ver­sal Pre­mi­um fea­tures 112Gbps PAM4 trans­cei­vers, 600G Ether­net cores, 400G cryp­to­gra­phic engi­nes, and PCIe® Gen5 con­nec­ti­vi­ty. Ver­sal Pre­mi­um enab­les a wide array of high-per­for­mance app­li­ca­ti­ons, inclu­ding trans­port net­wor­king in wired com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons, data cen­ter com­pu­te, next-genera­ti­on enter­pri­se and vir­tu­al fire­walls.
