Xilinx's Versal units are adaptive compute acceleration platforms (ACAP). An ACAP is a highly integrated, multicore, heterogeneous compute platform that can be changed at both the hardware and software levels to adapt to the needs of a wide range of applications and workloads in data center, automotive, 5G wireless, wired and defense markets. Through a host of tools, software, libraries, IP, middleware, and frameworks, ACAPs enable dynamically customizable accelerated computing solutions through industry-standard design flows. The Versal ACAP is built from the ground up to be software programmable. Xilinx's Versal architecture features a flexible, multi-terabit per-second network-on-chip (NoC). The NoC integrates all engines and key interfaces, making the platform available at boot and easily programmed by software developers, data scientists, and hardware developers alike.
