Xilinx Ships 16nm Virtex UltraScale+ Devices
Xilinx has shipped its Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA devices fabricated using TSMC’s 16FF+ process to over sixty of its customers. Virtex UltraScale family targets next generation Data Center, 400G and Terabit Wired Communications, Test and Measurement, and Aerospace and Defense markets.
“The successful delivery of our Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA marks the availability of all three UltraScale+ 16nm families, which are already providing more than one hundred customers with the ability to develop next generation designs using cutting edge FinFET-based devices, development boards and tools. Our “Three-Peat” execution – with three consecutive generations of leadership technology at 28nm, 20nm, and now at 16nm – showcases our sustained commitment to being first to market with the most advanced products in our industry,” said Victor Peng, executive vice president and general manager of the Programmable Products Group at Xilinx.
“Large scale data center systems require high-speed data processing, high-bandwidth, and low-latency connections to network and storage systems,” said Jeff Milrod, president and CEO of BittWare. “The early availability of high performance Virtex UltraScale+ devices, will enable us to rapidly meet and deploy leading edge technology addressing the networking, packet processing, storage and acceleration applications required by our customers.”
