Adaptive SoCs Further Push Performance Envelope

22 April 2024

The Versal AI Edge Series Gen 2 and Versal Prime Series Gen 2 adaptive system-on-chip (SoC) devices from AMD deliver treble the TOPS/W of the company's previous generation devices and offer as much as an order of magnitude higher computational capacity.

Using these SoCs allows engineers to simultaneously cover pre-processing, artificial intelligence (AI) inferencing and post-processing work via the same device. Versal AI Edge Series Gen 2 SoCs can deliver up to 100kDMIPs computing power while adhering to ASIL D functional safety requirements. They may be used in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), 3D imaging and various other applications. The Versal Prime Series Gen 2 SoCs offer 200kDMIPS operation by leveraging the 8x Arm Cortex-A78AE processing cores that each features. They can be used in avionics and medical imaging systems, as well as cobots and high-end industrial imaging equipment.  
“The demand for AI-enabled embedded applications is exploding and driving the need for single-chip solutions for the most efficient end-to-end acceleration within the power and area constraints of embedded systems,” says Salil Raje, SVP for Adaptive & Embedded Computing at AMD. “These latest generation Versal devices bring together multiple compute engines on a single architecture offering high compute efficiency and performance with scalability from the low-end to high-end.”
