6/30/2004 - Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX), the world's leading supplier of programmable logic solutions and inventor of the FPGA, announced that it has initiated shipment of Virtex-4 FPGAs to its early access customers. Manufactured using the world's first triple-oxide 90nm CMOS technology with 11-layer metal interconnect, Virtex-4 devices represent a quantum leap in programmable device architecture, technology, and system design capabilities. With over $2.5B in cumulative revenue, Virtex FPGAs are the world's most popular programmable logic brand.
The Virtex-4 FPGA family extends that leadership with a host of innovations that deliver unprecedented design capabilities to system designers worldwide.
"We have been working with a select group of customers since the first of the year through our early access program. As a result, engineering teams are already designing next-generation products that simply were not possible before the introduction of our Virtex-4 FPGAs," said Erich Goetting, vice president and general manager of the Advanced Products Division at Xilinx.
About Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGAs
The initial Virtex-4 family includes three platforms; Virtex-4 LX optimized for logic-intensive designs, Virtex-4 SX optimized for very high performance signal processing and Virtex-4 FX for embedded processing and high-speed serial connectivity. Each platform will offer a range of device options. With up to 200,000 logic cells and up to 500 MHz performance, the Virtex-4 family delivers twice the density and up to twice the performance of any FPGA in the industry currently in production. Initial engineering samples of the Virtex-4 LX Platform FPGAs have already been delivered with general samples and additional platforms to follow shortly.
