Xilinx ships 'world's first' 28nm fpga

Xilinx ships 'world's first' 28nm field programmable gate array

Xilinx has begun shipment of its Kintex-7 K235T fpgas. The company claims it is the fastest product rollout of next generation programmable logic devices built with 28nm technology.

The devices are built to enable fpga development for designs that may migrate to Artix-7 and Virtex-7 fpgas. The Kintex-7 fpgas are offered in conjunction with the Xilinx ISE Design Suite 13, AMBA 4 Advanced Extensible Interface (AXI) bus protocol compliant IP, and targeted reference designs.

All of these targeted design platform components run on the new Kintex-7 fpga KC705 evaluation board so designers can evaluate the power consumption, performance, and capabilities of the K325T devices. Xilinx says it delivered the new devices in less than 90 days from tape out by leveraging TSMC's 28nm High Performance, Low Power (HPL).

The low cost fpga is said to deliver a high number of channels at less than 12W of power for lte wireless radio cards and next generation wireless base stations. It is the first of 28 devices that make up the 7 series fpga that includes the Artix-7 and Virtex-7 families.
