Xilinx Inc. has announced a Data Centre Ecosystem Investment Programme to be administered through its corporate venture arm, Xilinx Technology Ventures. Investments made through the initiative will emphasise technologies that expand Xilinx's data centre products and offerings and ignite industry innovation, time to market advantage, and lower overall cost of ownership.

The programme targets solutions for emerging workload applications such as machine learning, image and video processing, data analytics, storage data base acceleration and network acceleration.

As part of this programme, Xilinx recently completed its first data centre ecosystem investment in TeraDeep Inc., a company specialising in convolutional neural networks-based machine learning. TeraDeep is recognised for its modern deep learning expertise and acceleration technology that runs on Xilinx FPGAs. Through this investment, TeraDeep will continue to work closely with Xilinx to further optimise its solutions on Xilinx-based FPGA boards.

Xilinx has revealed what it says is a transceiver technology breakthrough to deliver greater cost efficiency to data centre interconnects. It promises to deliver remarkable signal quality and auto-adaptive equalisation to ensure the highest signal integrity and fastest serial link implementation.

"Our customers are broadly deploying Xilinx FPGAs for application acceleration. We recognise the need for vibrant ecosystems that will spark innovation and support the full breadth and depth of solutions our markets require," said Hemant Dhulla, VP of data centre and wired communications business at Xilinx. "I am pleased that we are increasing our investment activity with promising young companies that will drive ingenuity and contribute to ecosystem growth and TeraDeep is the perfect example of a company doing just that."
