SAN JOSE, CA -- Xilinx, Inc. announces immediate availability of the inaugural issue of Xcell Software Journal – a quarterly magazine for application and embedded software developers creating smarter, connected, and differentiated systems across fast-growing markets such as 5G Wireless, SDN/NFV, Video/Vision, ADAS, Industrial IoT, and Cloud Computing. The magazine targets developers programming in high-level languages like C/C++ and OpenCL to harness significant performance-per-watt and "any-to-any" connectivity advantages of Xilinx® All Programmable devices over traditional software programmable devices.
The cover story of this first issue of the magazine delivers an overview of these new C/C++ and OpenCL development environments and software development resources from Xilinx and its Alliance members. The issue includes a rich set of feature stories detailing how software developers can use Xilinx's SDAccel development environment for data center application acceleration, and how embedded developers can easily accelerate their system performance and lower system power by programming C/C++ in Xilinx's new SDSoC development environment. One feature article spotlights a popular high-level methodology for system optimization from the MathWorks.
Xcell Software Journal is available as a one-click PDF download or can be read online in iPad/iPod-compatible ISSUU electronic magazine format.
