Silicon Devices, Design Tools, Boards and Kits, IP, and Services

An extensive catalog of base-level cores is available to address the general needs of FPGA designers, as well as robust domain- and market-specific cores to address requirements found in DSP, Embedded, and Connectivity designs. Xilinx Intellectual Property are key building blocks of Xilinx Targeted Design Platforms.


Xilinx FPGAs Offer High-Performance, Low-Power, Low-Cost Silicon Devices

As opposed to Application Specific Integrated Circuits where the device is custom built for the particular design, FPGAs can be programmed to the desired application or functionality requirements. Field Programmable Gate Arrays are programmable semiconductor devices that are based around a matrix of configurable logic blocks connected via programmable interconnects.


Configuration Memory

Developed to provide an easy-to-use high-performance programming solution, Xilinx offers a full range of configuration memories optimized for use with Virtex® and Spartan® FPGAs. Separate core and configuration voltages for complete voltage selection capability. Complete configuration solution that provide fast configuration speeds. 40 Mhz for Platform Flash, 50 MHz for Platform Flash XL. Design management storing, updating and controlling.


Xilinx Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform

In addition, the Zynq-7000 EPP family, with over 3000 interconnections between its processing system and the programmable logic, offers levels of performance that two-chip solutions cannot match due to limited IO bandwidth and limited power budgets.


Virtex-7 FPGA Family

Delivering up to 2.8Tb/s serial bandwidth, these devices enable communications equipment manufacturers to increase network capacity with next-generation hardware that operates within existing power and cooling footprints. Create a 300G Interlaken Bridge that enables infrastructure scaling with devices that deliver up to 1.9Tbps bandwidth for bridging between MAC-NPU, NPU-Switch, NPU-TCAM using the Interlaken industry standard.


Xilinx CPLDs offer High Performance and Ultra-low Power Consumption

Macrocells are functional blocks that perform combinatorial or sequential logic, and also have the added flexibility for true or complement, along with varied feedback paths. A CPLD is a combination of a fully programmable AND/OR array and a bank of macrocells. The AND/OR array is reprogrammable and can perform a multitude of logic functions. Lowest Cost, Lowest Power CPLDs.


Power Advantage

Here you will find detailed total power benchmarks representing real application designs across multiple market segments, demonstrating the power-efficiency leadership of Xilinx 7 series FPGAs. Power efficiencies realized through a 28nm high-performance, low power process, coupled with architecture innovations and simple and efficient power estimation tools.
