Johan started working at Xilinx almost 5 years ago, where he initially built the Video IP solution portfolio for all Xilinx video applications. This spans from video connectivity (HDMI, DP, SDI) to Video Processing (scalers, CSC, Deinterlacers, etc) and Video Over IP solutions. This portfolio which was built up from the ground is now mature and part of Xilinx IP catalogue. In the recent 1.5 years, Johan focused on enabling FPGAs for compute acceleration for video in Data centers/server, by architecting and developing the Video Acceleration solution from conception to production, with focus on Video Transcoding. As part of this, he drove the development of video transcoding in cloud/server & Data Center applications (HEVC, h.264, VP9) and associated compute acceleration. This portfolio is developed in a plug-play manner, where the FPGA is abstracted from the software developer and application. For example by enabling FFMPG plug-ins for codec acceleration. More recently, he is working on enhancing this portfolio with Machine Learning technologies Before Johan joined Xilinx, he worked as System/SoC/Video Architect Fellow for semiconductor companies like NXP and STmicro, and as VP of Architecture at Trident Microsystems where he was responsible for architecting the consumer SoCs for TV and Settopbox markets.
