Xilinx Unveils Industry's Largest Industrial Grade FPGAs

2/4/2004 - Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX), the world’s leading programmable logic supplier, announced the addition of the Virtex-II ProTM XC2VP100 to its industrial-grade series of FPGAs. The Virtex-II Pro XC2VP100 and industrial-grade Virtex-IITM XC2V8000 introduced in 2002 are the largest industrial-grade devices in the industry with up to 47 percent more logic capacity than competing devices. Based on their leading capacity, performance, and cost-effectiveness, Xilinx® Virtex FPGAs are the number one choice of designers worldwide.

Xilinx is the only logic supplier to offer industrial grade devices with embedded PowerPC technology and high-speed serial I/O capability supporting performance levels from 622 Mbps to 3.125 Gbps. These multiple PowerPC CPUs, multi-gigabit serial transceivers, and high-speed signal processing blocks are offered at no additional charge, providing unequaled capability and value for today's system design requirements.

Xilinx is the number one PLD provider to the industrial, scientific and medical markets and is poised to continue its lead in this growing market. Providing a broad range of temperature-tolerant low-cost CPLDs and FPGAs, the company’s reprogrammable temperature and radiation-tolerant devices enable today’s latest next-generation designs, including the successful landing of the Mars Rover Spirit and Opportunity.

About Xilinx Virtex-II and Virtex-II Pro FPGAs
Xilinx Virtex-II series Platform FPGAs deliver the highest performance and highest density of any programmable logic solution available today. Benchmarks show a 38 percent system performance advantage over the closest competitor. Virtex-II and Virtex-II Pro Platform FPGAs have been broadly adopted in sophisticated, high-performance applications historically dominated by application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). Xilinx customers worldwide are taking full advantage of the unique combination of price, performance, density, and flexibility of the Virtex-II series. ASIC alternatives simply cannot offer the reprogrammability of an FPGA, even after deployment to the field.
