With up to sixteen 28.05 Gb/s and seventy-two 13.1 Gb/s transceivers, the Virtex-7 HT devices have 4x the bandwidth of competing FPGAs and higher levels of integration compared to ASSPs. These devices deliver superior signal integrity with high logic capacity designed to meet the demands of Nx100 and 400G applications in the wired communications market.
Virtex-7 HT FPGAs are designed to work with the latest CFP2 and future CFP4 optical modules using 4x25 Gb/s links. These utilize half the area, consume half the power and reduce the cost per bit compared to CFPs. Virtex-7 HT FPGAs can interface to more than four ASICs/NPUs and interface to as many as four CFP2 modules.
Noise coupling reduction is required to enable high signal integrity 25-28.05 Gb/s transceivers. Xilinx’s industry-leading 3D SSI technology is used to isolate the digital logic fabric from the analog transceiver circuits in Virtex-7 HT devices.
Xilinx’s Stacked Silicon Interconnect (SSI) technology delivers superior system integration and ultra-high capacity in an unprecedented number of 28 Gb/s and 13.1 Gb/s capable transceivers while enabling lower levels of system complexity and reduced BOM costs.
