SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) today announced the beginning of the 7 series FPGA rollout with shipment of the first Kintex™-7 K325T Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), marking the industry's fastest product rollout of next generation programmable logic devices built with 28nm technology. Kintex-7 FPGAs are built to provide optimal price performance at the lowest power to meet requirements for key applications. At the same time, the Kintex-7 FPGA family leverages the unified architecture shared across the 7 series, 28nm device families to enable customers to begin FPGA development now for designs that may ultimately migrate to Artix™-7 and Virtex®-7 FPGAs.

The Kintex-7 devices are offered in conjunction with the Xilinx® ISE® Design Suite 13, AMBA® 4 Advanced Extensible Interface (AXI) bus protocol-compliant IP, and targeted reference designs. All of these Targeted Design Platform components run on the new Kintex-7 FPGA KC705 evaluation board currently being demonstrated for customers so that designers can evaluate the power consumption, performance, and capabilities of the new Kintex-7 K325T devices. Xilinx delivered the new devices in less than 90 days from tape-out by leveraging TSMC's 28nm High-Performance, Low-Power (HPL) process that relies on proven design and manufacturing methodologies.
