Semiconductor company Xilinx and Samsung Electronics announced an expanded collaboration to develop solutions for 5G New Radio (NR) commercial deployment. 

The first deployment is in South Korea and will be followed by additional countries globally in 2019 and beyond.

Xilinx and Samsung have been working together to develop and deploy multiple 5G Massive Multiple-input, Multiple-output (mMIMO) and millimeter wave (mmWave) solutions using the XilinxUltraScale+ platform. Additionally, Samsung is collaborating with Xilinx on its forthcoming Versal adaptable compute acceleration platform (ACAP) products to deliver state-of-the-art 5G solutions. The goal is to address a multi-fold increase in compute density requirements in next-generation 5G mMIMO systems while enabling the use of machine learning algorithms to maximize the benefits of beamforming gains to further boost capacity and performance.

Liam Madden, EVP of Hardware and Systems Product Development, Xilinx
Our strong relationship with Samsung spans many years and we're very proud to be a part of the 5G NR commercial deployment in addition to expanding our relationship with the company on our Versal platform. 

Jaeho Jeon, EVP and Head of R&D, Network Business, Samsung Electronics
Through a joint initiative from close collaboration with a trusted partner, Xilinx, Samsung was able to successfully supply the state-of-the-art products that were essential in 5G commercialization.
