Xilinx and Samsung have been working together to develop and deploy multiple 5G Massive Multiple-input, Multiple-output (mMIMO) and millimeter wave (mmWave) systems using the Xilinx® UltraScale+™ platform. Additionally, Samsung is collaborating with Xilinx on its forthcoming Versal® adaptable compute acceleration platform (ACAP) products to deliver state-of-the-art 5G systems. The goal is to address a multi-fold increase in compute density requirements in next-generation 5G mMIMO systems while enabling the use of machine learning algorithms to maximize the benefits of beamforming gains to further boost capacity and performance.
“Through a joint initiative from close collaboration with a trusted partner, Xilinx, Samsung was able to successfully supply the state-of-the-art products that were essential in 5G commercialization,” said Jaeho Jeon, executive vice president and head of R&D, networks business, Samsung Electronics. “Taking full advantage of our resources and gearing up with our 5G solutions, Samsung will take a leap forward in providing immersive user experiences and enriching the life of next-generation technologies.”
At Mobile World Congress 2019 , Xilinx will be showcasing updates to its UltraScale+ platform portfolio along with other adaptable, intelligent 5G infrastructure demonstrations, while Samsung will be demonstrating 5G NR platforms.
