Customer Bulletin: Xilinx Ships World's Largest FPGA Device

SAN JOSE, Calif.
Dec 9, 2004

Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced the immediate availability and shipment of its Virtex-4™ LX100 device, the world's highest capacity FPGA. Featuring over 110,000 logic cells and a host of embedded functionality -- the LX100 integrates larger designs than any other FPGA available. In addition to its industry-leading capacity and feature set, the Virtex-4 family delivers the highest performance and lowest power consumption of any high density FPGAs.

The LX100 joins the LX25, LX60, and SX35 devices already available in the Virtex-4 family. Xilinx has six times more FPGA devices available at the 90nm- process node than any other vendor and leads the industry in 90nm device options.

With the introduction of the LX100, design engineers now have a flexible, high-performance, low power and cost-effective alternative to ASICs and ASSPs for high complexity designs.

  Each Virtex-4 LX100 Device Includes:
  -- Triple-Oxide 90nm CMOS Process, reducing power consumption by a factor
     of six as compared to competing 90-nm FPGAs
  -- Unique ASMBL architecture, optimized for high-performance logic
  -- 96 500MHz XtremeDSP™ Slices, delivering aggregate DSP performance of
     48 GigaMACs per second at record-setting power-efficiency levels of
  -- 4.3 Mbits of 500MHz SmartRAM™, configurable synchronous dual-port
     Static RAM, featuring integrated FIFO control logic to build fast FIFOs
     without consuming logic cell resources.
  -- 960 I/Os featuring 1 Gbps performance and ChipSync™ source
     synchronous technology with integrated bit and word alignment circuitry
     and SERDES available on every I/O
  -- 500MHz DCM™ Digital Clock Managers, offering sub-30ps timing
     resolution and the world's most advanced clock synthesis and timing
  -- 500MHz high-performance on-chip differential clock networks for highest
     precision control of skew and duty-cycle

  About Xilinx Virtex-4 Platform FPGAs

Enabled by the revolutionary ASMBL™ (Advanced Silicon Modular Block) architecture, Virtex-4 FPGAs deliver more options than any other FPGA family available today. With more than 100 technical innovations, the Virtex-4 family consists of 17 devices and three domain-optimized platforms: Virtex-4 LX FPGAs optimized for logic-intensive designs, Virtex-4 SX FPGAs optimized for high- performance signal processing, and Virtex-4 FX FPGAs optimized for high-speed serial connectivity and embedded processing. A multi-platform approach makes it possible for customers to select the optimal mix of resources for their application to achieve the highest functionality and breakthrough performance at the lowest cost.
