Xilinx Transceiver Breakthrough Brings Greater Cost Efficiency to Data Center Interconnects

SAN JOSE, CA -- Xilinx, Inc. announces a transceiver technology breakthrough, bringing greater cost efficiency to data center interconnects. Xilinx's Virtex® UltraScale™ devices have achieved compliance to the 25GE, 50GE and 100GE copper cable and backplane IEEE and related specifications which supports up to five meters of copper cabling in the data center and up to one meter of backplane interconnect. These specifications include the IEEE 802.3bj 100GBASE-CR4/KR4, IEEE 802.3by 25GBASE-CR/CR-S/KR/KR-S, and 25 Gigabit Ethernet Consortium 50GBASE-CR2/KR2. Data center customers can now leverage nx25G lanes of copper cabling versus optics for more cost and power-optimized solutions to connect servers to top-of-rack switches using any off-the-shelf, specification-compliant vendor.

Xilinx transceiver technology delivers unmatched signal quality and auto-adaptive equalization to ensure the highest signal integrity and fastest serial link implementation. Along with integrated 100G Ethernet MAC IP, soft error-correction (RS-FEC) IP, and ASIC-class logic fabric, Virtex UltraScale FPGAs provide a complete, high performance and low-latency Ethernet solution for data center workload acceleration.
