Xilinx Delivers 65nm Virtex-5 LX330 - Industry's Largest FPGA

Delivery of LX330 device completes on-time rollout of Virtex-5 LX family - first platform in world's first 65nm FPGA family

SAN JOSE, Calif.
Dec 28, 2006

Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), today announced it has shipped the industry's largest FPGA. Developed using an advanced power-saving 65nm process technology, the Virtex™-5 LX330 FPGA delivers 65 percent more logic than the largest 90nm FPGAs. Xilinx fab partners UMC and Toshiba have ramped production on their 65nm processes quickly and with excellent yields, allowing Xilinx to deliver the complete 65nm Virtex-5 LX platform on time and over one year ahead of its competition. Xilinx also announced the shipment of the LX220, which completes the rollout of the Virtex-5 LX family.

Xilinx Virtex-5 LX devices feature a new advanced architecture enabling up to 30 percent higher design performance with the industry's lowest power consumption for high-performance FPGAs at equivalent logic density levels. The LX platform consists of six devices offering up to 330,000 logic cells, 1200 user I/Os, 10-Mbits of 36-Kbit block RAM, and 3.4-Mbits of distributed RAM, plus an abundance of hardened intellectual property (IP) blocks.

Pricing and Availability

Virtex-5 LX330 engineering samples are shipping now. At customer production timeframes in 2008, the LX330 device will list for $2395 in 1,000 piece quantities. All other members of the Virtex-5 LX platform are shipping as well, including the LX30, LX50, LX85, LX110, and LX220.
