Xilinx Broadens the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC Family with Streamlined Dual-Core Devices

New devices expand processing scalability within the Zynq UltraScale+ family

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 15, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced it has added streamlined dual-core members to the Zynq® UltraScale+ MPSoC family of devices. The new dual-core "CG" family members expand the Zynq MPSoC portfolio scalability, to include dual application and real-time processor combinations. These dual-core devices add processing scalability at a lower cost entry point to the current Zynq UltraScale+ family, which offers quad ARM® Cortex®-A53s, dual Cortex-R5s, a graphics processing unit, and a video codec unit. Designers can choose from three device types within the scalable processing portfolio to address processing requirements across a breadth of markets, including motor control, sensor fusion, medical endoscopy, and handheld radios.

"The new members of the portfolio address our customers' need for a scalable, common hardware platform, giving them flexibility with dual-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor solutions," said Sumit Shah, senior SoC product line manager at Xilinx. "They address an even broader range of markets and applications, offer lower cost entry points, and are pin migration compatible across our entire Zynq UltraScale+ portfolio."

"The embedded market consists of a diverse set of applications, with customers seeking efficient and scalable technologies that can be deployed across a range of platforms and markets," said Ian Ferguson, vice president for worldwide marketing and strategic alliances at ARM. "The Zynq product portfolio is now broader than ever before and offering a range of ARM processors will significantly improve customer's time to market as code and IP can be reused for any application."

The dual-core CG devices will be supported on the industry-leading Vivado® Design Suite, version 2016.3 in Q4 2016. Customers can start designing today using existing Zynq UltraScale+ devices and migrate their designs when the dual-core CG devices are available in 1H2017.
