Multicore Association Announces Xilinx’s Participation as a New Board Member to Drive Emerging Multicore and Manycore Standards

The Multicore Association™, a global non-profit organization focused on developing standards that help speed time to market for products that involve multicore implementations, announced today that Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) has joined the consortium as an executive board member.

"Xilinx has been a semiconductor industry leader at the forefront of technology for over 25 years, and we look forward to the contributions they’ll make in the development of our next generation standards,” said Multicore Association President, Markus Levy. “Xilinx’s involvement with the Multicore Association, especially focused on our new Software-Hardware Interface for Multi-Many Core (SHIM) standard and MCAPI standard, will provide very well-rounded guidance and a practical perspective on designing with multicore technology."

“Xilinx strongly supports the Multicore Association and its mission to guide the long-term development of open standards for multicore and manycore solutions,” said Tomas Evensen, Chief Scientist Embedded Software at Xilinx. “Our history is marked by a commitment to innovation and delivering customer value, with dedication to open standards and a broad ecosystem that furthers industry-wide collaboration.”

The Multicore Association is working to enable the widespread adoption of multicore processor-based implementations, such as the Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs, by setting standards for how systems will be utilized and programmed. As a semiconductor design innovator, Xilinx will help the Multicore Association drive standards for deploying multicore solutions in high performance embedded systems.

The Multicore Association provides three levels of membership, with executive board, working group, and university members. The executive board helps determine the overall direction of the organization.

Working group members are eligible to work on any of the working groups. University members may participate in any of the Multicore Association’s ongoing development work.
