SAN JOSE, CA -- Xilinx, Inc. expands its 16nm UltraScale+ product roadmap with acceleration enhanced technologies for the Data Center. The resulting products will deliver the powerful combination of Xilinx's industry-leading 16nm FinFET+ FPGAs with integrated High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM), and support for the recently announced Cache Coherent Interconnect for Acceleration technology (CCIX). CCIX is initially driven by a group of seven companies to enable an acceleration framework that works with multiple processor architectures. These acceleration enhanced technologies will enable efficient heterogeneous computing for the most demanding data center workloads. The new products will also be highly leveraged in many other compute intensive applications requiring high memory bandwidth.
Built on the TSMCs proven CoWoS process, Xilinx® HBM-enabled FPGAs will improve acceleration capabilities by offering 10X higher memory bandwidth relative to discrete memory channels. HBM technology enables multi-terabit memory bandwidth integrated in package for the lowest possible latency. To further optimize data center workloads, the new CCIX technology promotes efficient heterogeneous computing by allowing processors with different instruction-set architectures to coherently share data with accelerators such as the Xilinx HBM-enabled FPGAs.
Xilinx is already collaborating with leading hyperscale data center customers to create optimized configurations and products.
