Silicon Architecture

Xilinx SoCs and FPGAs power intelligent and adaptive assets in harsh environments over industrial lifecycles at the lowest total cost of ownership.


Xilinx powers the Industrial IoT through the strong platforming capacity and hardware determinism of its SoCs and FPGAs. Embedded and application software development is rightfully attributed to drive the overwhelming cost of IIoT-enabled systems, therefore the value of a flexible, scalable, futureproof embedded IIoT edge platform to leverage the software investment is high.

The unique capacity to mix programmable software intelligence with programmable hardware determinism in a single chip differentiates Xilinx from other silicon architectures and leads to reduced complexity across industrial product lines, increased capability to adapt to the pace of the Industrial Internet of things, and improved time-to-market. Hardware determinism in Xilinx programmable logic isolates critical control timing and other operational technology (OT) functions from the often unpredictable behaviors of network communication, cybersecurity-related activities and other processing in the information technology (IT) domain.

Xilinx silicon products have typically exceeded published 15 years lifecycle expectations and are designed to support industrial, automotive, and military temperature ranges. With a transparent approach to quality and long-term reliability documentation, Xilinx is the choice for Industrial IoT edge platforms for both customers and ecosystem partners alike.

Furthermore, with programming models that support software and data science programming languages and tools such as C, C++, Python, Labview, Matlab Simulink, and others in addition to traditional HDL languages and approaches, it is no surprise that Xilinx is recognized for dominating the Industrial IoT.*
