Xilinx Ships Industry's First 16nm All Programmable MPSoC Ahead of Schedule

SAN JOSE, CA -- Xilinx, Inc. announces first shipment of the industry's first 16nm multiprocessor SoC (MPSoC) a quarter ahead of schedule. The early release of the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC enables Xilinx customers to begin designing and delivering MPSoC-based systems today. Built using TSMC's 16FF+ process, the Zynq® UltraScale+ MPSoC enables the development of next-generation embedded vision, ADAS, I-IoT and communications systems by providing 5X system-level performance/watt and any-to-any connectivity with the security and safety required for next-generation systems.

"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.

About Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs

The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC is the industry's first heterogeneous multiprocessor SoC (MPSoC) using TSMC's 16FF+ process. The new family enables the development of flexible, standards-based platforms by providing 5X system-level performance/watt and any-to-any connectivity with the security and safety required for next-generation systems. The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs combine seven user programmable processors including a 64-bit quad-core ARM® Cortex™-A53 Application Processing Unit, a 32-bit dual-core ARM® Cortex™-R5 Real Time Processing Unit, and an ARM® Mali™-400 Graphics Processing Unit. The family also includes a host of integrated peripherals, safety and security features, and advanced power management. When coupled with the SDSoC™ development environment, the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family enables systems that are both software defined and hardware optimized.

Availability

Initial All Programmable Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC devices are shipping now. General sampling begins in Q1, 2016.
