Xilinx Extends its Cost-Optimized Portfolio Targeting a Wide Range of Applications Including Embedded Vision and Industrial IoT

Expanded Spartan, Artix, and Zynq families address next generation any-to-any connectivity, sensor fusion, precision control, image processing, analytics, safety and security

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 27, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced the expansion of its cost-optimized silicon portfolio targeting a wide range of applications including Embedded Vision and Industrial IoT.  Today's Embedded Vision and Industrial IoT applications need to collect, aggregate, and analyze data from a variety of sensors for actionable insights.  Whether scaling a multi-sensor camera's functionality on a factory floor, or developing a smart drone with an innovative guidance system based on sensor fusion, designers can take advantage of the Xilinx® FPGA and SoC offerings across the portfolio for part or all of the system. The expanded Xilinx Spartan®, Artix®, and Zynq® product families address next generation any-to-any connectivity, sensor fusion, precision control, image processing, analytics, and safety and security.

"With these new additions to our cost-optimized portfolio, Xilinx is re-enforcing its commitment to deliver a full range of solutions for cost sensitive applications," said Kirk Saban, senior director of FPGA & SoC Product Management and Marketing at Xilinx. "The portfolio expansion, now including the Spartan-7 family, additional Artix-7 products, and the Zynq-7000 single core devices, offers the most compelling performance-per-watt solutions in the industry and expanded processor scalability all at lower cost entry points."

The new Spartan-7 family offers the industry's only 28nm-based FPGA in an 8x8mm package, enabling the portfolio's most cost-efficient connectivity solution for both legacy and cutting-edge interfaces, while delivering the highest performance-per-watt sensor fusion and precision control in a small form factor. 

The newly added Artix-7 devices extend the family's industry leadership in transceiver and signal processing performance.  These new FPGAs provide best-in-class image processing bandwidth in multi-sensor embedded vision with greater power efficiency at small densities.

New Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC single core devices offer an even lower cost entry-point to a fully scalable, ARM® processor based Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC platform, delivering a cost-optimized single-chip solution for analytic functions and cloud connectivity. Utilized across the portfolio is a multi-layered approach to safety and security, including processor-driven secure boot and the latest generation bitstream encryption and authentication to address the growing concern of cybersecurity in the IoT. These portfolio extensions complement the recently announced dual core CG MPSoC products to provide a continuum of options of single to dual core A9 on 28nm process technology to dual core A53 on 16nm process technology.

The enhanced cost optimized portfolio is enabled in the upcoming 2016.3 release of the Vivado® Design Suite for IP-centric and system-centric design and implementation, as well as Xilinx's SDx™ software defined environments, empowering both hardware and software developers to meet aggressive design schedules typical in cost-conscious markets. The all new Spartan-7 family, as well as new Artix-7 FPGAs, and Zynq-7000S devices, will be supported on the no-cost Vivado Design Suite WebPACK Edition, as well as the Vivado Design and System to enable immediate development.

Spartan-7 device sampling and Zynq-7000S production devices will begin shipping in the first quarter of 2017.
