Xilinx's 10GBASE-KR Solution Passes Full Electrical and Protocol Testing for Backplane Applications

Xilinx Enables Compliant 10G Backplanes for High-Performance Network and Data Center Equipment

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 25, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced that its 7 Series GTH transceiver successfully completed testing for 10GBASE-KR LogiCORE™ IP at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) – a highly respected laboratory that tests data networking technologies – validating that it fully meets UNH-IOL's receiver (Rx) and transmitter (Tx) electrical and protocol compliance tests for backplane applications.  This achievement enables OEMs to develop high-performance network and data center solutions with 10 Gigabit or 40 Gigabit backplanes that conform to the IEEE Std 802.3  using Xilinx's 10GBASE-KR LogiCORE IP and enable 40GBASE-KR4 LogiCORE IP on Virtex®-7 XT and HT devices with GTH transceivers.

"Passing these compliance tests is a significant milestone in the development of our 10GBASE-KR 10-Gigabit serial interface, which is part of our expanding portfolio for addressing the need for service providers to deliver more bandwidth-intensive services intelligently to minimize both capital expenditures and operational expenses," said Raj Seelam, director of solutions marketing at Xilinx.  "We worked closely with UNH-IOL in this effort, providing equipment, boards and experts who worked side-by-side with the UNH-IOL testing teams to achieve this milestone."

"We are pleased that Xilinx has passed 10GBASE-KR conformance testing with its 10GBASE-KR solution as the UNH-IOL collaborates with our members to help them bring compliant designs into the market as fast as possible," said Curtis Donahue, Manager for the UNH-IOL Backplane Ethernet Consortium. "Xilinx's commitment to conformance and interoperability testing is vital to the continued success of the IEEE 802.3 10GBASE-KR standard."

Several devices and boards were used in this extensive compliance testing effort, including the Virtex-7 FPGA VC7215 board featuring the XC7VX690T-3FFG1927E device.
