Xilinx Unveils Details On 16nm Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs with High Bandwidth Memory and CCIX Technology

SAN JOSE, CA -- Xilinx, Inc. gives details for new 16nm Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs with HBM and CCIX technology. Containing the highest memory bandwidth available, these HBM-enabled FPGAs offer 20X higher memory bandwidth relative to a DDR4 DIMM and 4X less power per bit versus competing memory technologies. The new devices are architected to support the higher memory needs of compute-intensive applications such as machine learning, Ethernet connectivity, 8K video, and radar. They also contain CCIX IP, enabling cache-coherent acceleration to any CCIX-enabled processor to address compute acceleration applications.

Based on the proven 16nm Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA family, which started sampling in 2015, the HBM-optimized Virtex UltraScale+ products offer the lowest-risk approach to HBM integration. The family is built using 3rd generation CoWoS technology—co-developed by TSMC and Xilinx and now the industry standard assembly for HBM integration.
