400G High-Speed Crypto Engines

Line Rate Encryption for Secure Networks

The Versal Premium ACAP delivers 1.6Tb/s of line rate encryption throughput, making it an ideal platform for secure networks. It features the world’s only hardened 400G channelized High-Speed Crypto (HSC) Engines in an adaptable platform. The HSC Engine supports the AES-GCM encryption/decryption, MACsec, and IPsec for multi-layered security.


Multirate Ethernet Cores with FEC

Single Platform for 10G to 800G

The dedicated connectivity IP enables secure multi-terabit Ethernet with support for many data rates and protocols. The mix of 100G and 600G Ethernet cores delivers up to 5Tb/s of throughput and allows scalability from the access network to metro to core, all on a single platform.



600G Interlaken with FEC

Scalable Chip-to-Chip Interconnect

Integrated Interlaken cores in the device support up to 600Gb/s with built-in flow control for reliable, high-bandwidth data transmission. With integrated RS-FEC for power-optimized error correction, Versal Premium devices support scalable chip-to-chip interconnect while minimizing the I/O and power overhead for networking systems.


PCIe Gen5 with DMA & CCIX, CXL

Optimal CPU-to-Accelerator Communication

PCIe® Gen5 accelerates server CPU-to-accelerator communication for next-generation compute applications, while the hardened DMA engines with programmable NoC deliver scalable and turn-key virtualization for workload provisioning and deployment. The CCIX/CXL sub-blocks enable (a)symmetric communication for diverse cloud topologies.


Programmable Network on Chip

Guaranteed QoS and Power Efficiency

The programmable network on chip (NoC) provides an optimized multi-terabit interconnect between the different compute engines and integrated IP blocks in the Versal ACAP, simplifying timing closure and saving logic resources. The NoC compiler provides a streamlined programming experience while allowing users to manage latency and QoS for critical datapaths.



Scalar Engines

Three scalar processor types are available for diverse application needs. The application processing unit is ideal for complex applications supported by an OS, and the real-time processing unit is ideal for latency-sensitive applications. A separate platform management controller manages system boot, security, and debug.

Adaptable Engines

Programmable logic enables the development of custom computational blocks for differentiation, future-proofing, and ever-changing algorithms. Loaded with a wide variety of memory elements and tightly coupled with programmable I/O, the Adaptable Engines allow users to create powerful accelerators for any application.

Intelligent Engines

Enhanced DSP Engines provide support for a variety of operations and data types, including single and half-precision floating-point and complex 18x18 operations. With backward compatibility to UltraScale+™ device designs, users can either leverage existing libraries or update their designs for the maximum compute performance.

Data Center Network Acceleration

Metro/Core Transport Networks

Due to fast-growing bandwidth demands for 5G wireless, xHaul, PON, and cable access, there is tremendous pressure on the metro/transport networks to aggregate and intelligently process network traffic. Versal® Premium series provide 112G PAM4 transceivers with dedicated connectivity IP such as 600G channelized multirate Ethernet and integrated 600G Interlaken with FEC to enable thermally efficient designs in complex metro/core transport networks.

With double the compute density of traditional hardware programmable devices, Versal Premium enables hardware differentiation, adaptability to evolving standards, and the ability to infuse AI/ML for tomorrow’s autonomous and intelligent networks.

Data Center Interconnect

As data centers scale, data center interconnect (DCI) technologies must evolve to enable high capacity, scalability, and power efficiency. Versal Premium series allows service providers to deploy flexible transport technology by providing scalable transceivers up to 112G, up to 5Tb/s of ethernet throughput, and 1.6Tb/s of line-rate encryption for fast and secure connectivity between data centers.

Data Center Network Acceleration

Data Center Network Acceleration

Scalable Acceleration in the Data Center

As a heterogeneous platform, Versal Premium features the world’s highest compute density for adaptable cloud acceleration for a breadth of workloads, including genomics, video transcoding, search, and machine learning.

Dynamic function exchange (DFx) allows users to swap compute kernels in milliseconds to provision accelerators for the most efficient use of cloud infrastructure. With massive on-chip memory capacity and bandwidth and double the compute density of currently deployed FPGA accelerators, Versal Premium offers superior compute and streamlined orchestration.

Built from the ground up to seamlessly integrate with cloud infrastructure, Versal Premium features an integrated shell that ensures host server and system memory communication is available at boot, allowing accelerator designers to spend less time on connectivity and more time on differentiation.


Test Equipment

To pioneer network technologies at 800G and beyond, vendors need to leverage bleeding-edge communication test equipment to ensure interoperability and robust network traffic management. Versal Premium series provides 112G PAM4 transceivers with integrated KP4 FEC for emerging protocols as well as interoperability with optics and backplanes. Dedicated channelized multirate Ethernet cores with aggregate throughput of 3.2Tb/s feature individually accessible MAC, PCS, and FEC blocks alongside programmable logic resources for custom error injection and statistical analysis.

Co-optimized with Vivado Design Suite, Versal Premium can implement the most complex test logic for automated test, data-flow control, tracking, and reporting for L2-L3 (800G), SSD, and PCIe protocol test equipment.
