Highest Performance &
Integration on FinFET

Virtex UltraScale+ Product Advantage

Virtex® UltraScale+™ devices provide the highest performance and integration capabilities in a FinFET node, including both the highest serial I/O and signal processing bandwidth. They also deliver the highest on-chip memory density and plus up to 8GB of HBM Gen2 integrated in-package, offering 460GB/s memory bandwidth. As the industry’s most capable FPGA family, the devices are ideal for applications ranging from 1+ Tb/s networking, smart NIC, and machine learning, to fully-integrated radar/early-warning systems.

Value Features

  • Up to 8GB of HBM Gen2 integrated in-package
  • Up to 500Mb of on-chip memory integration
  • Integrated 100G Ethernet MAC with RS-FEC and 150G Interlaken cores
  • Integrated blocks for PCI Express Gen 3x16 and Gen 4x8
Increased System Performance
  • Over 2X system-level performance per watt over Virtex-7 FPGAs
  • Up to four speed-grade improvement with high utilization
  • Up to 128-33G transceivers deliver 8.4 Tb of serial bandwidth
  • 460GB/s HBM bandwidth, and 2,666 Mb/s DDR4 in a mid-speed grade
BOM Cost Reduction
  • A 5:1 card reduction for 1 Tb MuxSAR transponder
  • UltraRAM for on-chip memory integration
  • VCXO and fractional PLL integration reduces clocking component cost
Total Power Reduction
  • Up to 60% lower power vs. 7 series FPGAs
  • Voltage scaling options for performance and power
  • Tighter logic cell packing reduces dynamic power
Accelerated Design Productivity
