Season 4 - Episode #7 - Xilinx launch Versal HBM platform
The Versal HBM series enables the convergence of fast memory, secure connectivity, and adaptable compute in a single platform. Versal HBM ACAPs integrate advanced HBM2e DRAM, providing 820GB/s of throughput and 32GB of capacity for 8X more memory bandwidth and 63% lower power than DDR5 implementations. The Versal HBM series is architected to keep up with the higher memory needs of the most compute intensive, memory bound applications for data center, wired networking, test and measurement, and aerospace and defence.
To discuss the Versal HBM in more detail we’ll be speaking to Mike Thompson, a Senior Product Line Manager – Versal HBM & Premium and Virtex UltraScale+ at Xilinx, managing high-end devices including the Virtex UltraScale+ portfolio.
Prior to joining Xilinx, Mike spent eight years at Altera as an FAE and account manager covering many markets for top tier customers, as well as managing channel sales teams. He specialised in communications, storage, broadcast, and test and measurement markets, as well as emerging account development. Before his field work, he spent 14 years in engineering working on architectures, systems engineering, and designing ASICs and FPGAs for networking, video and astronomical applications.
