SAN JOSE, CA -- Xilinx, Inc. has added streamlined dual-core members to the Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC family of devices. The new dual-core "CG" family members expand the Zynq MPSoC portfolio scalability, to include dual application and real-time processor combinations. These dual-core devices add processing scalability at a lower cost entry point to the current Zynq UltraScale+ family, which offers quad ARM® Cortex®-A53s, dual Cortex-R5s, a graphics processing unit, and a video codec unit. Designers can choose from three device types within the scalable processing portfolio to address processing requirements across a breadth of markets, including motor control, sensor fusion, medical endoscopy, and handheld radios.
The dual-core CG devices will be supported on the industry-leading Vivado® Design Suite, version 2016.3 in Q4 2016. Customers can start designing today using existing Zynq UltraScale+ devices and migrate their designs when the dual-core CG devices are available in 1H2017.
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 multiple user programmable processors including a dual or quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU, a 32-bit dual-core ARM Cortex-R5 real-time processor and an ARM Mali™-400 GPU. 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 software defined and hardware optimized.
