AMD Ryzen Gets On Board With Xilinx Versal


Two years after completing its Xilinx acquisition, AMD has released a design combining an AMD-heritage processor with a Xilinx-heritage FPGA. The new AMD Embedded+ is a board, not a chip, however. It targets PC-like systems for industrial, medical, and other embedded applications. Taking over Xilinx, with its broad customer base, should help AMD expand its small embedded-processor business. Because it’s only bundling existing silicon, Embedded+ could’ve been developed before the acquisition. Coming two years after the deal’s close, it’s a welcome—albeit underwhelming—initiative.
