Greatest Performance and
Integration at 20nm

Virtex UltraScale Product Advantage

Virtex® UltraScale™ devices provide the greatest performance and integration at 20nm, including serial I/O bandwidth and logic capacity. As the industry’s only high-end FPGA at the 20nm process node, this family is ideal for applications ranging from 400G networking to large scale ASIC prototyping and emulation.

Value Deliverables
Programmable System Integration
Increased System Performance
  • Up to two speed-grade improvement with high utilization
  • 30G transceivers for chip-to-chip, chip-to-optics, 28G backplanes
  • 16G backplane capable transceivers at half the power
  • 2400Mb/s DDR4  for robust operation over varying PVT
BOM Cost Reduction
  • Up to 50% lower cost – half the cost per port for Nx100G systems
  • VCXO and fractional PLL integration reduces clocking component cost
  • 2400Mb/s DDR4 in a mid-speed grade
Total Power Reduction
  • Up to 40% lower power vs. previous generation
  • Fine granular clock gating with ASIC-like clocking
  • Enhanced System Logic Cell packing reduces dynamic power
Accelerated Design Productivity
  • Footprint compatibility with Kintex® UltraScale devices for scalability
  • Seamless footprint migration from 20nm planar to 16nm FinFET
  • Co-optimized with Vivado® Design Suite for rapid design closure

All comparisons based upon 28 nm Virtex-7 FPGAs.
