The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC (multiprocessor SoC) from Xilinx delivers 5X system-level performance/watt and any-to-any connectivity with the security and safety required for next-generation systems such as embedded vision, ADAS, I-IoT and more. Based on the Xilinx UltraScale MPSoC architecture, the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs provides a flexible, scalable processing platform with the highest levels of security and safety.
The MPSoC is a SoC which uses multiple processors, usually targeted for embedded applications. It is used by platforms that contain multiple, usually heterogeneous, processing elements with specific functionalities reflecting the need of the expected application domain, a memory hierarchy (often using scratchpad RAM and DMA) and I/O components. All these components are linked to each other by an on-chip interconnect. These architectures meet the performance needs of multimedia applications, telecommunication architectures, network security and other application domains while limiting the power consumption through the use of specialised processing elements and architecture.
According to the press release, “The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC is the industry’s first heterogeneous MPSoC using TSMC’s 16FF+ process that combine seven user programmable processors including a 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 Application Processing Unit, a 32-bit dual-core ARM Cortex-R5 Real Time Processing Unit, and an ARM Mali-400 Graphics Processing Unit. When coupled with the SDSoC development environment, the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family enables systems that are both software defined and hardware optimised.”
“The early delivery of our Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC 16nm device extends our outstanding track record for total execution and absolute quality. We call this a “Three-Peat” – being first to market with leadership products at 28nm, 20nm, and now at 16nm,” said Victor Peng, executive vice president and general manager of the Programmable Products Group at Xilinx.
