New AEC-Q100 qualified Artix FPGAs deliver best-in-class system performance per watt for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, In-Vehicle Infotainment, and Driver Information

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced the expansion of its Artix®-7 Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) family for automotive applications. The new XA Artix-7 portfolio extends the market leading Xilinx® Automotive (XA) family of AEC-Q100 qualified FPGAs, providing best-in-class system performance per watt in applications like advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), and driver information (DI). In addition to performance, system designers benefit from significant power advantages over previous technologies and small footprint packaging for space-challenged automotive electronic control unit (ECU) designs.

"Xilinx XA Artix-7 devices satisfy the stringent quality and reliability standards of the automotive market and provides a scalable solution with advantages in power and system integration for optimum system-level architectural flexibility and cost," said Nick DiFiore, director of Xilinx's automotive segment. "The XA family is well suited for automotive applications requiring advanced video processing, complex DSP operations, or bridging to the latest interface or networking standards."

The XA Artix-7 family consists of four devices - XA7A35T, XA7A50T, XA7A75T and XA7A100T - providing from 30k to 101k logic cells, and industry leading I/O to package size ratio with up to 285 I/Os and packages as small as 10mm x 10mm.  Rich integrated DSP capabilities provide up to 264 GMACs of signal processing performance, which is especially useful for image data processing in ADAS applications. Integrated Gigabit transceivers, capable of data rates up to 6.25 Gbit/s, enable customers to implement fully integrated connectivity solutions like PCI Express Gen 2. Advanced features like dynamic partial reconfiguration (DPR), AES encryption, and an integrated Analog Mixed Signal (AMS) block made up of 12-bit 17-channel 1Msps Analog to Digital Converters (ADC) with internal temperature and supply voltage sensors, enable overall ECU BOM cost optimization.

The XA Artix-7 FPGAs complement the automotive qualified XA Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC family. Both device families are produced using TSMC's High-Performance, Low-Power (HPL) 28nm process, enabling a reduction of up to 50% in total power compared to previous generations or competing solutions.

Customers using the XA Artix-7 family are given a wide variety of device/package combinations allowing them to up- or downscale the design according to changing project requirements. The device architecture also enables a smooth migration of IP or complete designs from or to XA-Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs.

Availability
Fully AEC-Q100 qualified Artix-7 XA7A100T FPGAs are available today for mass production. XA7A35T, XA7A50T and XA7A75T will be available in Q4 of CY2014, though developers can begin their Artix-7 designs using available Xilinx design tools and associated commercial grade devices which are available now.
