Xilinx Expands into New Applications with Cost-Optimized UltraScale+ Portfolio for Ultra-Compact, High-Performance Edge Compute

Enhanced scalability with low power and cost in new form factors enable UltraScale+ devices for numerous growth market opportunities ranging from IoT to networking

“LUCID has worked closely with Xilinx to integrate the new UltraScale+ ZU3 into our next generation industrial machine vision camera, the Triton Edge,” said Rod Barman, founder and president at LUCID Vision Labs. “With the UltraScale+ ZU3 and its InFO packaging, LUCID was able to utilize an innovative rigid-flex board architecture to squeeze an amazing amount of processing power into an ultra-compact IP67, factory-tough camera.”

AU+ Portfolio

With the addition of Artix devices and the extension to the Zynq UltraScale+ family, Xilinx’s portfolio now spans across the high-end with Virtex® UltraScale+, to the midrange with Kintex® UltraScale+, to the new cost-optimized low-end. These new devices round out the portfolio and provide scalability for customers to develop multiple solutions using the same Xilinx platform. This preserves design investments across the portfolio and speeds time-to-market. e0310xi_Artix_Zynq_Hand

Security is a critical component in Xilinx designs, and both cost-optimized Artix and Zynq UltraScale+ families include the same robust security features found across the UltraScale+ portfolio. Included are RSA-4096 authentication, AES-CGM decryption, DPA countermeasures, and Xilinx’s proprietary Security Monitor IP that adapts to security threats across the product life cycle, meeting the security needs for both defense and commercial projects.

“The ability for customers to scale their designs using a single secure platform for a wide range of applications and markets is key to enabling faster, easier design integration as well as for capturing critical time-to-market opportunities,” said Dan Mandell, senior analyst, IoT and Embedded Technology at VDC Research. “Xilinx’s strategy to expand its portfolio to meet these market needs with its scalable and secure UltraScale+ Artix and Zynq families is compelling, especially considering the strong business opportunities in growth markets where these solutions are being deployed.”

The first cost-optimized Artix UltraScale+ devices are expected to be available in production by Q3 CY2021, with Vivado® Design Suite and Vitis™ Unified Software Platform tool support starting late summer. Zynq UltraScale+ ZU1 devices will also begin sampling in Q3 with tool support in Q2, and volume production of the extended portfolio beginning Q4.
