ABSTRACT

The Versal ACAP is a new platform offering from Xilinx that exploits leading edge 7nm semiconductor process technology with semiconductor innovation to create a new category of adaptive SoCs. This portfolio of devices can be used to create Domain Specific Architectures that are scalable and optimized to meet a wide range of application requirements from end points to vehicles to infrastructure. 5G architectures requiring compute intensive functionality, such as massive MIMO and beamforming, are key target applications that are enabled by Versal and its’ silicon innovations.
Tools are a critical component of enabling the developer community to leverage the full potential of Versal platforms. Vitis Unified Software Platform, combined with Vivado Design Suite, offers a comprehensive development environment and programming model that enables all developers, including hardware and software engineers, and data scientists to access the full potential of Versal ACAP. With Vitis, developers can meet the growing challenges and unique requirements of their applications, while continuing to work at an application level and develop in familiar programming languages & frameworks.
In this session, equal time will be spent reviewing the benefits and features of both Versal devices and the Vitis tool flow with an emphasis on 5G applications.
