Integrated blocks for PCI Express enable high-performance applications

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced that its Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGAs are the first 20nm devices to achieve PCI Express® compliance and are now listed on the PCI-SIG® integrator's list. The Kintex UltraScale FPGAs, with integrated Endpoint blocks for PCI Express enabling high performance applications, passed rigorous electrical, protocol, and interoperability tests at the latest PCI-SIG event held on April 3, 2014.

The UltraScale family supports Gen3 (8 Gb/s) speeds with up to x8 links and up to six integrated PCIe® blocks to enable high throughput applications such as wireline and data center  applications requiring SRIOV with expandable physical and virtual functions. Design engineers can meet the high system bandwidth and programmable system integration needed in a variety of applications with no-cost integrated PCIe blocks.

"Xilinx delivers another industry first milestone with our Kintex UltraScale FPGAs achieving PCI-SIG compliance," said Ketan Mehta, PCI Express product marketing manager at Xilinx. "With the industry's most robust tranceivers and Vivado® Design Suite IP Integrator for accelerated integration of hierarchical and third-party blocks, our customers can realize the fastest time to differentiation."

About 20nm UltraScale Family
Xilinx 20nm UltraScale devices deliver an ASIC-class advantage with the industry's only ASIC-class programmable architecture coupled with the Vivado ASIC-strength design suite and UltraFast™ design methodology. The UltraScale product portfolio extends Xilinx's market leading Kintex® and Virtex® FPGA and 3D IC families, based on the UltraScale architecture and TSMC 20nm SoC process. UltraScale devices enable 1.5x to 2x realizable system performance and integration, and consume up to half the power, relative to currently available solutions. These devices deliver next generation routing, ASIC-like clocking, and enhancements to logic and fabric to eliminate interconnect bottlenecks while supporting consistently high device utilization without performance degradation. With footprint compatibility between families, Kintex UltraScale FPGAs provide a clear migration path to Virtex UltraScale devices.
