Xilinx ISE WebPACK 5.1i Supports New Devices and Tools to Improve User Productivity

10/2/2002 - Xilinx, the leader in programmable logic IC and software solutions, announced availability of ISE WebPACK 5.1i; the industry's most comprehensive, easy-to-use downloadable design environment for designers of CPLDs and FPGAs. This new version of ISE WebPACK delivers an average of 15 percent higher circuit performance than the previous version, making it possible to reduce system cost through the use of lower speed grade, less expensive devices.

New additions to ISE WebPACK 5.1i include many of the features first made available in ISE 5.1i, which began shipping in August. ISE WebPACK 5.1i allows designers to finish faster with less risk using key new features, such as:

ISE WebPACK 5.1i also employs a unique installation method directly from the Xilinx web site that optimizes the number of files transferred and allows for recovery in the case of interruption.

ISE WebPACK 5.1i is available for download now. ISE WebPACK supports all Xilinx leading-edge PLD families, including CoolRunner-II CPLDs, Spartan-IIE FPGAs, Virtex-II platform FPGAs and now, the Virtex-II ProTM XC2VP2TM FPGA. Visit the Xilinx web site at www.xilinx.com/ise/webpack5 for complete information on the free ISE WebPACK and other WebPOWERED products.

About Xilinx ISE version 5.1i software environment
With ISE 5.1i, Xilinx is delivering "ASIC-strength" design tools to exploit the power of Virtex-II Pro silicon, ranging in device densities from 40,000 to more than eight million system gates. Designers are benefiting from a 2X improvement in compile times (an increase from 100,000 to 200,000 gate/min) and a 40 percent gain in device speeds over last year's software release. With an installed base of more than 150,000 design seats, and more than 50 percent market share in the PLD industry, Xilinx ISE is widely regarded as the de facto standard methodology for programmable logic design.
