Xilinx Expands its 16nm UltraScale+ Product Roadmap to Include Acceleration Enhanced Technologies for the Data Center

Combines 16nm UltraScale+ programmable logic with HBM memory and new accelerator interconnect technology for heterogeneous computing

May 23, 2016

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX) today announced expansion of its 16nm UltraScale+™ product roadmap with new acceleration enhanced technologies for the Data Center. The resulting products will deliver the powerful combination of Xilinx's industry-leading 16nm FinFET+ FPGAs with integrated High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM), and support for the recently announced Cache Coherent Interconnect for Acceleration technology (CCIX). CCIX is initially driven by a group of seven companies to enable an acceleration framework that works with multiple processor architectures. These acceleration enhanced technologies will enable efficient heterogeneous computing for the most demanding data center workloads. The new products will also be highly leveraged in many other compute intensive applications requiring high memory bandwidth.

Built on the TSMCs proven CoWoS process, Xilinx® HBM-enabled FPGAs will improve acceleration capabilities by offering 10X higher memory bandwidth relative to discrete memory channels. HBM technology enables multi-terabit memory bandwidth integrated in package for the lowest possible latency. To further optimize data center workloads, the new CCIX technology promotes efficient heterogeneous computing by allowing processors with different instruction-set architectures to coherently share data with accelerators such as the Xilinx HBM-enabled FPGAs.

"Having already delivered 19 billion transistors on a chip at 20nm leveraging our second generation 3D IC technology, we are creating a third generation 3D IC breakthrough  for data center acceleration and other compute intensive designs," said Victor Peng, executive vice president and general manager, Programmable Products at Xilinx. "When combined with next generation CCIX acceleration framework and our software defined SDAccel™  development environment, this technology will enable a new breed of high-density, flexible platforms for accelerating compute, storage and networking applications."

Xilinx is already collaborating with leading hyperscale data center customers to create optimized configurations and products.
