Highest Performance &
Integration on FinFET

Virtex UltraScale+ Product Advantage

Based on the UltraScale architecture, the latest Virtex® UltraScale+ devices provide the highest performance and integration capabilities in a FinFET node, including the highest signal processing bandwidth at 21.2 TeraMACs of DSP compute performance. They also deliver the highest on-chip memory density with up to 500Mb of total on-chip integrated memory, plus up to 8GB of HBM Gen2 integrated in-package for 460GB/s of memory bandwidth. Virtex UltraScale+ devices deliver significant capabilities with integrated IP for PCI Express, Interlaken, 100G Ethernet with FEC, and Cache Coherent Interconnect for Accelerators (CCIX). Xilinx 3D ICs utilize stacked silicon interconnect (SSI) technology to break through the limitations of Moore’s law and deliver the capabilities to satisfy the most demanding design requirements. Third-generation 3D IC technology provides registered inter-die routing lines enabling >600 MHz operation, with abundant and flexible clocking. As the industry’s most capable FPGA family, the devices are ideal for applications ranging from 1+ Tb/s networking, smart NIC, machine learning, and Data Center Interconnect, to fully-integrated radar/early-warning systems.
