The UltraScale™ MPSoC Architecture is built on TSMC’s 16FinFET+ process technology and enables next-generation Zynq® UltraScale+ MPSoCs. Building on the industry success of the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC family, the new UltraScale MPSoC architecture extends Xilinx SoCs to enable true heterogeneous multi-processing with ‘the right engines for the right tasks’ for smarter systems, including:
The UltraScale MPSoC architecture provides multiple advanced processors that scale from 32 to 64 bits with support for virtualization. Xilinx has partnered with ARM® to provide the most efficient 64-bit ARMv8 application processors with the Cortex®-A53, real-time, power efficient co-processors with the ARM® Cortex®-R5, and an OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0 compliant ARM® Mali™-400MP multicore GPU to leverage ARM’s leadership in embedded processors and its ecosystem. In addition, the Zynq UltraScale MPSoC includes an H.265/H.264 video codec unit to provide native UltraHD compression and dedicated engines for dynamic power management and security configuration.
To effectively harness the power of the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, Xilinx has the SoC-strength tools with Vivado® Design Suite, Xilinx SDK, and PetaLinux, and can further accelerate development using the SDx™ family of environments for design abstraction.
