FPGA-Based Prototyping

ASIC prototyping with FPGAs enables fast and accurate SoC system modeling and verification as well as accelerated software and firmware development. Xilinx takes prototyping to the next level with its next generation 20nm solution, the Virtex UltraScale VU440 FPGA, and its 28nm Virtex®-7 2000T FPGA, now in volume production. These multi-million logic cell solutions:

  • Eliminate the need for multi-chip partitioning
  • Mitigate development risks for large ASIC and ASSP designs
  • Reduce board space requirements and complexity
  • Deliver flexible I/O to create a contiguous device
  • Reduce system level power consumption

Virtex UltraScale 440: World’s Largest FPGA

The Virtex UltraScale 440 device is based on 2nd generation Stacked Silicon Interconnect (SSI) technologyand delivers 4x the system capacity of the competition:

  • 4.4M logic cells, 20B transistors
  • Forty-eight 16.3Gb/s serial transceivers
  • 89Mb of BRAM
  • 1,456 I/Os

 

Virtex-7 2000T: Built with ASIC Prototyping in Mind

The Virtex-7 2000T FPGA enabled by Stacked Silicon Interconnect (SSI) is ideally suited for the ASIC prototyping and emulation marketplace:

  • 2M logic cells, 6.8B transistors
  • Thirty-six 12.5Gb/s serial transceivers
  • 46Mb of BRAM
  • 1,200 I/Os
  • Now in volume production

ASIC Emulation in Action

Xilinx has leveraged ASIC prototyping and emulation methodology with the creation of the Zynq®-7000 SoC emulation platform. The original Virtex-5 and Virtex-6 based emulation platform was ported to a Virtex-7 2000T FPGA, enabling a 5X increase in performance and a 6X reduction in devices.
