Samsung and Xilinx Partner for 5G Commercial Deployments

By Chrissie Cluney June 03, 2020

Samsung Electronics Company and Xilinx, Inc., which is the leader in adaptive and intelligent computing, are partnering together.

Samsung Electronics will be using the Xilinx Versal adaptive compute acceleration platform (ACAP) for worldwide 5G commercial deployments. Xilinx Versal ACAPs provide a universal, flexible and scalable platform that can address multiple operator requirements across multiple geographies.

“Samsung has been working closely with Xilinx, paving the way for enhancing our 5G technical leadership and opening up a new era in 5G,” said Jaeho Jeon, EVP and head of R&D, Networks business, Samsung Electronics. “Taking a step further by applying Xilinx’s new advanced platform to our solutions, we expect to increase 5G performance and accelerate our leadership position in the global market.”

The platform reportedly offers compute density at low power consumption to perform the real-time, low-latency signal processing used by beamforming algorithms. The AI Engines, which are part of the Versal AI Core series, are comprised of a tiled array of vector processors. This allows them to be ideal for implementing the required mathematical functions offering high compute density, advanced connectivity, and the ability to be reprogrammed and reconfigured even after deployment.

The first Versal ACAP devices have been shipping to early access customers. The product will be generally available in the Q4 2020 timeframe.
