The Expanding Xilinx Ecosystem This issue of Xcell Journal brings you news of a radical expansion in the ecosystem of companies supporting systems development based on Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 SoCs and Zynq UltraScale+™ MPSoCs. Xilinx announced this expansion at the end of February at the Embedded World conference, held in Nuremberg, Germany. The Xilinx booth at the show offered demos of many applications created by Xilinx as well as by Xilinx ecosystem member companies and Xilinx customers, including:

Chances are good that your next design will resemble one or more of these demonstrations, which means that the Xilinx and ecosystem IP used in the demos could easily apply to your design too. This issue’s cover story, “Xilinx Extends Ecosystem to Reshape the Future of Embedded Vision, IIoT System Design,” by Aaron Behman and Dan Isaacs, starting on page 8, gives you a lot more detail about this important ecosystem expansion.
