SAN JOSE, CA -- Xilinx, Inc. announces first customer shipment of the Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA, the industry's first high-end FinFET FPGA built using TSMC's 16FF+ process. Xilinx is actively engaged with more than one hundred customers on the UltraScale+ portfolio with design tools, and has already shipped devices and/or boards to over sixty of these customers.
The Virtex UltraScale+ devices join the Zynq® UltraScale+ MPSoCs and Kintex® UltraScale+ FPGAs showcasing the availability of all three families of the Xilinx® 16nm portfolio. Virtex UltraScale+ devices build on the success of the Virtex UltraScale family, the industry's only 20nm high-end FPGAs. With industry leading capabilities like 32G transceivers, PCIe® Gen 4 integrated cores, and UltraRAM on-chip memory technology, the new devices provide the required performance and integration needed for next generation Data Center, 400G and Terabit Wired Communications, Test and Measurement, and Aerospace and Defense markets.
Virtex UltraScale+ devices are now shipping. The UltraScale+ portfolio is supported in the current release of the Vivado® Design Suite 2015.4 with over 100 customers actively in development.
