Information

The cooperation between the two giants will lay a strong cornerstone for the development of a new generation of programmable platforms in the industry

  October 20, 2009, Beijing—Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), a global leader in programmable logic solutions, and ARM announced the formal cooperation to apply ARM processing in Xilinx FPGAs And interconnection technology. Xilinx has already begun to adopt the ARM Cortex processor IP, using the performance-optimized ARM digital cell library (cell library) and embedded memory to provide support for future programmable platforms. In addition, the two companies are also jointly defining the next-generation ARM® AMBA® interconnect technology to enhance and optimize the FPGA architecture.

  The cooperation between the two companies means that Xilinx is committed to adopting a full range of ARM technology and making full use of the huge advantages of ARM processors to provide customers and ecosystem developers with a flexible computing platform, so that their IP and software development can be more efficient. Share and reuse in a wide range. This will also enable the programmable solution to further penetrate into the existing market and expand to newer market areas. Ideal applications will cover communications, automotive, consumer markets, aerospace, defense, and industrial markets.

  Mr. Mike Muller, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of ARM, said, “The two major factors of continuously shortening the time to market and rising product development costs have prompted the industry to develop integrated processor-centric design methods and open systems commonly used in system-on-chip design. A new product that integrates standards and has the flexibility of programmable logic. Combining ARM's leadership in low-power, high-performance processors and physical IP technology and its Connected Community™ ecosystem strength, plus Xilinx With the company’s leading FPGA technology, we can help software developers and hardware designers to accelerate their development of various applications."

  Nick Tredennick, a technical analyst at Gilder Publishing, pointed out that “Xilinx uses ARM processor technology to provide a promising blueprint for the development of FPGA architecture. The cooperation and joint definition of the next-generation AMBA interconnection standard between the two parties will provide the necessary The optimal design of these new products makes these new products have ideal system performance, integration, reuse and scalability. This also provides a common technical foundation for the development, testing, exchange and sharing of IP and system solutions. This model It will have a profound impact on the programmable logic industry in the future."

  In order to help build a better ecosystem serving Xilinx FPGA and ARM IP technologies, the two companies have long been cooperating with many IP providers and EDA vendors, including Cadence, CAST, Denali, Mentor Graphics, Northwest Logic , Omiino, Sarance, Synopsys and Xylon, etc. to support the advanced version of the AMBA standard. The AMBA standard is an industry standard for on-chip fabric communication and maintains close contact with the ARM processor. This new interconnection not only uses the world's leading 32-bit processor IP to simplify and extend the functions of the next-generation programmable platform, but also the definition of the standard is consistent with the "pluggable IP" of Xilinx's target design platform strategy. . Because the ability to reuse IP is an essential part of reducing system development costs and time schedules, this innovative plug-and-play method means that the IP developed by Xilinx and its ecosystem does not require users to support the supplier. With a huge investment, it can be easily used.

  "Using Xilinx's open, standards-based solutions, we will help customers use their own IP while reusing the mature solutions of internal and/or ecosystem vendors to put more energy on their core solutions In terms of solutions and differentiation." Mr. Vin Ratford, senior vice president of global marketing and business development at Xilinx, said, "We also believe that this approach will foster a very dynamic and thriving ecosystem. The ecosystem will continue to grow and provide standard and emerging IP solutions, and these IP solutions can be applied to a wide range of industrial fields."

  AMBA and Xilinx Target Design Platform

  The AMBA protocol is an industry standard for on-chip organization and communication, and specifies detailed implementation strategies for the interconnection and management of the functional modules that make up a system-on-chip (SoC). This new cooperation with Xilinx has optimized the FPGA implementation of this protocol and proposed a new model that uses a processor or does not require a processor to be used alone. The cooperation with ARM is consistent with the Xilinx target design platform strategy announced by Xilinx earlier this year. At that time, Xilinx, a leader in the programmable logic industry, drew a blueprint for the industry based on industry-leading FPGA technology, development boards and standard IP through the release of a target design platform strategy. A key component of the target design platform is the participation of the ecosystem, so that mutual customers of both parties can easily test their product designs on a stable architecture. The adoption of AMBA and AXI™ technology provides software and hardware designers with the stability of proven and widely adopted standards for the interconnection of IP modules and the construction of embedded systems.
