Today, Xilinx simultaneously rolled out three families of 16nm UltraScale+ All Programmable devices based on TSMC’s new 16FF+ FinFET process technology. The three new 16nm UltraScale+ families with 24 new devices are:

Each family targets different sets of system-design goals.

Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs and 3D FPGAs are designed to be used in extreme, high-performance applications including 1+ Tbps wired communications, high-performance computing, and waveform processing for radar applications. Virtex UltraScale+ devices deliver as many as four speed grades worth of performance improvement compared to 28nm Xilinx Virtex-7 all programmable devices. Here’s a chart showing all of the devices in the 16nm Virtex UltraScale+ family:

Kintex UltraScale+ FPGAs are designed for advanced systems that require the best price-performance/Watt including wireless multi-antennae, NX100G networking, and DSP-intensive applications. Kintex UltraScale+ FPGAs triple the system-level performance/Watt compared to 28nm Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGAs. Here’s a chart showing all of the devices in the 16nm Kintex UltraScale+ family:

And then there are the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs. The original Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoCs incorporated an embedded, hardened, dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor. Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs bring a lot more hardened processor firepower to bear on your toughest system design problems. Start with a 1.3GHz quad ARM Cortex-A53 MPCore 64-bit application processor complex. Blend in two 600MHz ARM Cortex-R5 real-time processors in a dual-core configuration for tasks requiring deterministic, real-time response. For safety-related and high-reliability tasks, you can put the two ARM Cortex-R5 processors in lock step or you can use them independently. Here’s a chart showing the eleven devices in the 16nm Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family:

There are many, many new features in these UltraScale+ All Programmable devices which I’ll be discussing in several additional Xcell Daily posts this week. Please stay tuned.
