Designer’s Journey: Navigating the Transition to Versal ACAP

SPONSORED BY:

Ever-increasing data volumes, rising computation demands and real-time performance expectations can no longer be satisfied by traditional solutions. With the introduction of ACAP (Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform) technology, Xilinx has enabled an innovative approach for the next era of specialized computing. This highly dense, next-generation chip solution combines multiple types of processing elements to form a whole new category of dramatically faster devices that step beyond the current CPU/GPU/FPGA paradigm. Utilizing this technology, we can now solve the most advanced radar, cognitive EW and AI challenges. This white paper follows a Mercury design engineering team’s journey toward ACAP development methodologies. By starting simply, our team was able to better understand the tools and technology behind the ACAP architecture before taking on more complex implementations.
