Xilinx has adopted Micron’s Xcella flash memory for its Versal adaptive compute acceleration platform (ACAP). Xccella’s JEDEC xSPI-compliant bus interface delivers an 8x boot and configuration performance improvement over quad SPI NOR flash in Xilinx Versal ACAP platforms. Xcella flash technology also consumes 30 percent less energy per bit over quad SPI NOR flash while providing 400 MBps bandwidth in double-data rate mode,
Xcella flash is built on a 45 nm NOR flash process, and meets AEC-Q100 requirements. The 256 MB to 2 GB devices are available in -40ºC to +125ºC operating temperature ranges.
Heterogeneous, programmable ACAP patforms are leveraging the Micron Octal SPI flash to help AI, automotive, and other safety-critical data processing architectures meet near-instant-on design requirements.
