SmartCORE IP Building Blocks for Smarter Systems
Xilinx® SmartCORE IP – used in conjunction with the company's ARM® processor-based Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoCs, FPGAs, and 3D ICs – provides the technology foundation needed to create an extremely wide range of next-generation applications ranging from data center security appliances and resource-optimizing TOR (top-of-rack) switches to extremely efficient mobile backhaul modems and smarter wired access equipment. SmartCORE IP-based solutions examples include, but are not limited to:
Customers and Services Add 'Secret Sauce'
- "Service-level-aware," packet-based processing solutions with dynamic QoS adjustment for 100G and greater OTN networks.
- Customizable DPD & CFR for Class 1 MC-GSM Power Amplifier Linearization with 60 MHz transmission bandwidth including integrated ARM processor-based control for LTE and LTE Advanced wireless radios.
- 80 Gbps data center NIC solutions with high-granularity traffic management, enabling the provisioning of a high number of traffic flows to accommodate new services and associated service monetization.
Customers can add their differentiating 'secret sauce' comprised of smarter, adaptable algorithms and functions by quickly assembling unique combinations of SmartCORE IP embodied in highly flexible Xilinx All Programmable devices. These differentiating elements can be implemented using programmable hardware and/or ARM processor-based programmable software. Xilinx helps customers optimize their designs during the early architecture design phase with applications specialists, and offers advanced design services for customers who require IP customization or full system design support. In the last two-plus years, while Xilinx was acquiring and developing its smarter solutions and working with its most advanced customers, these offerings displaced more than 200 ASICs and ASSPs in a wide range of applications.
