A Xilinx "apresentou" o Versal AI, que só estará disponível daqui a um ano...



We started this piece by highlighting how there was an enormous gap, perhaps half a generation, between announcement and availability. Xilinx says that you can purchase its $11,995 development board now and start prototyping using the Versal AI Core then migrate to its AI Edge product next year. In comparison, the NVIDIA AGX Xavier developer kit is $700 (Amazon Affiliate Link) and there is a history of being able to develop on CUDA and upgrade to new hardware.

Xilinx Acquires Silexica to Broaden its Developer Base

Xilinx, Inc., a leader in adaptive computing, today announced that it has acquired Silexica, a privately-held provider of C/C++ programming and analysis tools. Silexica’s SLX FPGA tool suite empowers developers with a development experience building applications on FPGAs and Adaptive SoCs. This technology will become integrated with the Xilinx Vitis unified software platform to substantially reduce the learning curve for software developers building sophisticated applications on Xilinx technology.
After six years of cutting-edge academic research, Silexica was spun out of RWTH Aachen University in 2014. Its headquarters are in Cologne, Germany, with offices in Silicon Valley and Japan. It serves innovative companies in the automotive, robotics, wireless communications, aerospace, and financial industries and has received $28 million in funding from international investors.

Financial details and the terms of the transaction are not being disclosed.
