Acquisition enables converged SmartNIC solutions
Xilinx has entered into an agreement to acquire Solarflare Communications, a provider of high-performance, low latency networking solutions.

The acquisition of the privately owned, Irvine, California-based company will allow Xilinx to combine its FPGA, MPSoC and ACAP solutions with Solarflare’s ultra-low latency network interface card (NIC) technology and Onload application acceleration software, to enable new converged SmartNIC solutions.

Xilinx and Solarflare have been collaborating on advanced networking technology for the last two years, with Xilinx becoming a strategic investor in 2017. The two companies recently demonstrated their first joint solution – a single-chip FPGA-based 100G SmartNIC, processing 100 million packets-per-second receive and transmit, all at less than 75 watts.

“Solarflare has been a pioneer in key areas such as high-speed Ethernet, application acceleration, and NVMe-over-fabrics, which are the critical components needed to build the next generation of SmartNICs for cloud and enterprise technologies,” says Salil Raje, executive vice president and general manager, Data Center Group, Xilinx. “Acquiring Solarflare brings Xilinx both market-leading technology and exceptional engineering talent with expertise in networking hardware, software, firmware and drivers.”
