Xilinx said it has achieved the customer shipment of the industry’s first 16nm multiprocessor SoC (MPSoC) a quarter ahead of schedule.
“TSMC's ongoing collaboration with Xilinx has resulted in the early shipment of a world class 16nm FinFET multiprocessing SoC," said Dr. BJ Woo, TSMC vice president of Business Development. “Xilinx and TSMC have clearly demonstrated and delivered industry-leading silicon performance with the lowest power consumption, and highest level of systems integration and intelligence among all programmable logic products to date.”
“The early delivery of our Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC 16nm device extends our outstanding track record for total execution and absolute quality. We call this a “Three-Peat” – being first to market with leadership products at 28nm, 20nm, and now at 16nm,” said Victor Peng, executive vice president and general manager of the Programmable Products Group at Xilinx.
Initial All Programmable Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC devices are shipping now. General sampling begins in Q1, 2016.
