Industry’s first high-end 16nm FinFET FPGAs

Xilinx has announced the first shipment of the Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA, claimed to be the industry’s first high-end FinFET FPGA built using TSMC’s 16FF+ process.

Victor Peng, executive vice president and general manager of the Programmable Products Group at Xilinx, said: “The successful delivery of our Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA marks the availability of all three UltraScale+ 16nm families, which are already providing more than one hundred customers with the ability to develop next generation designs using cutting edge FinFET-based devices, development boards and tools. Our “Three-Peat” execution – with three consecutive generations of leadership technology at 28nm, 20nm, and now at 16nm – showcases our sustained commitment to being first to market with the most advanced products in our industry.”

Virtex UltraScale+ devices are said to build on the Virtex UltraScale family, the industry’s only 20nm high-end FPGAs. With 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 data centres, 400G and Terabit Wired Communications, Test and Measurement, and Aerospace and Defence markets.
