Synplicity Support for Xilinx Virtex SeriesIn 1999, FPGA technology is moving to even greater levels of density and functionality. New devices contain over a million logic gates and support designs with clock speeds that exceed 100 MHz. Price per gate continue to fall dramatically. The designer can now look to FPGAs not only for prototyping ASICs in the small to medium range of 50K to 200K gates, but also as an alternative to standard-cell ASICs. The fast time to market and the flexibility in development that typifies the FPGA now has the additional benefit of very large capacity and high clock speeds.
