Beyond 5G infrastructure challenges, IDT and Xilinx technologies together solve problems in high-performance computing, hyperscale cloud data centers, mobile edge computing and mission-critical embedded systems.
"Our All Programmable technology has been in 3G and 4G network deployments globally, and we have led many of the 5G pre-product research initiatives, covering remote radio units, baseband processing, and C-RAN deployments," said Farhad Shafai, vice president of communications business at Xilinx. "Now, working closely with IDT, we can provide even more value to our joint customers for the global rollout of 5G."
"IDT's strategy in 5G is focused on tackling the largest obstacles--capacity, latency and time synchronization--with silicon-level and software solutions that dramatically change the end-user experience," said Sailesh Chittipeddi, IDT's chief technology officer and vice president of global operations. "Our innovations have been in advance of network deployments, allowing for enhancement of user experience with key products for 4G Advanced, LTE-Pro and 5G developments."
"With this announcement IDT and Xilinx bring innovation that is essential to the deployment of 5G networks," said Jag Bolaria, principal analyst at the Linley Group, "Given the high cost of developing these technologies internally, system OEMs benefit from the solutions resulting from this industry collaboration, which builds upon multiple generations of R&D and proven deployments by the two companies."
The IDT technology is available now. IDT compression IP running at 3:1 ratios in a Xilinx Zynq XC7Z045 FPGA was demonstrated by NAT Europe and Fraunhofer at this year's Mobile World Congress. IDT and Xilinx recently completed interoperability testing between IDT's RXS family of RapidIO switches with Xilinx FPGAs at 10.3125 Gbaud per lane. These FPGAs also support transceivers up to 32 Gbaud, providing a path to scale to higher bandwidth connectivity.
