AMD Unveils Versal Premium VP1902 Adaptive SoC for Streamlined Chip Verification

AMD has announced the AMD Versal Premium VP1902 adaptive system-on-chip (SoC), which holds the distinction of being the world’s largest adaptive SoC. This chipset-based device is specifically designed to simplify the verification process for complex semiconductor designs. With twice the capacity of the previous generation, the VP1902 adaptive SoC empowers designers to confidently innovate and validate application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and SoC designs, accelerating the introduction of next-generation technologies to the market.

AMD unveils the world’s largest FPGA-based adaptive SoC for emulation and prototyping

The growing complexity of AI workloads necessitates advanced solutions in chip development to meet the demands of tomorrow. FPGA-based emulation and prototyping offer unparalleled performance, enabling faster silicon verification and allowing developers to shift their focus to software development well before silicon tape-out. Leveraging its acquisition of Xilinx, AMD brings over 17 years of leadership and six generations of high-capacity emulation devices to the table, with each generation nearly doubling in capacity.

Accelerated Design Iterations with Unmatched Debug Capabilities

Effective debugging is essential during pre-silicon verification and concurrent software development to ensure timely and cost-effective project execution. The VP1902 adaptive SoC leverages the Versal architecture, including the programmable network-on-chip, to deliver up to 8×5 faster debugging compared to the previous VU19P FPGA.

Development Tools and Ecosystem Collaborations

AMD’s Vivado ML design suite provides customers with a comprehensive development platform for rapid design, debugging, and validation of next-generation applications and technologies, reducing time to market. Enhanced features tailored for the VP1902 adaptive SoC include automated design closure assistance, interactive design tuning, remote multi-user real-time debugging, and improved back-end compilation, enabling end users to iterate IC designs more efficiently. AMD closely collaborates with leading EDA vendors such as Cadence, Siemens, and Synopsys to provide designers with a fully-featured and scalable ecosystem of solutions.
