Xilinx Tech Ventures to Invest in Cloud & NFV Start-ups

Xilinx Technology Ventures is launching a Data Center Ecosystem Investment Program that will focus primarily on technologies that expand Xilinx's data center products and offerings and ignite industry innovation, time to market advantage, and lower overall cost of ownership. The new program 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 program, Xilinx recently completed its first data center ecosystem investment in TeraDeep, Inc., a company specializing in convolutional neural networks-based machine learning. TeraDeep is widely recognized for its state-of-the-art deep learning expertise and acceleration technology which runs on Xilinx® FPGAs. Through this investment, TeraDeep will continue to work closely with Xilinx to further optimize its solutions on Xilinx-based FPGA boards.

"Through this investment program, we want to help enable start-ups that create libraries, middleware, and application software to accelerate the broad deployment of Xilinx FPGA solutions in the Data Center," said Greer Person, senior director, Corporate Business Development. "In addition to funding, our portfolio companies often gain access to Xilinx business and technology experts, products, and design environments to help them create more competitive solutions, accelerate time-to-market, and reduce development costs."
