Applications

Solving a broad range of industry-specific problems with performance and flexibility

 

Phased Array Radar

Adaptive beamforming for phased radar array performs precision tracking and guidance in a spectrum contested environment. Versal® Premium devices with AI Engines enable 4X greater signal processing capacity1 than the previous generation, allowing designers to implement more compute-intensive functions beyond beamforming. AI Engines and DSP Engines natively support various data types, including highly efficient single-precision floating-point for greater dynamic range, which is critical in radar applications.

The Versal Premium series provides 112G PAM4 transceivers with power-optimized IP to ensure secure networking from antennas to backend interfaces while easing system integration and lowering latency and power. The innovative, heterogeneous integration in the Versal architecture results in industry-leading reductions in size, weight, and power (SWaP) advantage for many radar system designs.

Data Center Network Acceleration

Metro/Core Transport Networks

Due to fast-growing bandwidth demands for 5G wireless, xHaul, PON, and cable access, there is tremendous pressure on the metro/transport networks to aggregate and intelligently process network traffic. Versal® Premium series provide 112G PAM4 transceivers with dedicated connectivity IP such as 600G channelized multirate Ethernet and integrated 600G Interlaken with FEC to enable thermally efficient designs in complex metro/core transport networks.

With double the compute density of traditional hardware programmable devices, Versal Premium enables hardware differentiation, adaptability to evolving standards, and the ability to infuse AI/ML for tomorrow’s autonomous and intelligent networks.


Scalable Acceleration in the Data Center

As a heterogeneous platform, Versal Premium features the world’s highest compute density for adaptable cloud acceleration for a breadth of workloads, including genomics, video transcoding, search, and machine learning.

Dynamic function eXchange (DFX) allows users to swap compute kernels in milliseconds to provision accelerators for the most efficient use of cloud infrastructure. With massive on-chip memory capacity and bandwidth and double the compute density of currently deployed FPGA accelerators, Versal Premium offers superior compute and streamlined orchestration.

Built from the ground up to seamlessly integrate with cloud infrastructure, Versal Premium features an integrated shell that ensures host server and system memory communication is available at boot, allowing accelerator designers to spend less time on connectivity and more time on differentiation.
