A NEW PERFORMANCE STANDARD FOR POWER-LIMITED, COST-SENSITIVE MARKETS
Xilinx® has announced the first customer shipment of the Virtex® UltraScale™ Artix-7 50T FPGA Evaluation Kit. The digital revolution has changed expectations for novice and savvy FPGA designers alike. Competing in cost-sensitive markets such as aerospace and defense, communications infrastructure, medical, industrial, and consumer electronics calls for a strong portfolio of high-performance features. Without sacrificing performance, developers must be able to extend use models for greater portability and application reach while keeping power — a critical resource — to a minimum.
The Xilinx® Artix®-7 family of FPGAs has redefined cost-sensitive solutions by cutting power consumption in half from the previous generation while providing advanced functionality for edge applications. Designers can leverage twice the logic for the same power budget. The newest generation of 7 series devices are built on advanced 28nm process technology to produce the lowest-cost, lowest power FPGA for products like portable medical equipment, military radios, and compact wireless infrastructure. Artix-7 FPGAs meet the needs of size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) sensitive markets like avionics and communications.
