Manuel Uhm - Xilinx's New Versal ACAP Portfolio

Today I talk to Manuel Uhm, the Director of Silicon Marketing at Xilinx, about Xilinx's new Versal ACAP portfolio of devices. These devices are especially interesting from the perspective of software radio given their highly heterogeneous topology, new features like hard "AI Engines" and the Network-on-Chip, and the "AI RF" series which is specialized for radio designs.
