Xilinx introduced their fourth generation secure architecture with Information Assurance and Anti-Tamper IP core support for defense-grade 7 series FPGA devices and Zynq-7000 All Programmable system-on-chips. In addition to the secure capabilities, the defense-grade 7 series FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs offer mask set control, ruggedized packaging with fully-leaded (Pb) content for harsh environmental operation, full extended temperature range testing, long term availability and anti-counterfeiting features.
The basis for Xilinx’s fail safe heritage is the combination of Xilinx’s fourth generation secure silicon, Information Assurance methodology and DoD 5000 Series compliant Anti-Tamper Security Monitor IP core (SECMON). The fail safe heritage removes any single point of failure in systems that may compromise a mission, which is a key attribute in assuring secure applications functionality.
The high reliability, defense-grade devices reduce the risk and cost of deploying the latest Aerospace and Defense (A&D) systems by utilizing off-the-shelf reprogrammable Xilinx FPGAs and SoCs. All devices are manufactured with 28nm process technology, and are optimized for high performance and the lowest total power. Xilinx defense-grade products are fully pin-compatible to commercial-grade equivalents for low cost prototyping and are offered off-the-shelf.
The Xilinx All Programmable families of defense-grade FPGAs and SoCs are available in I-temperature (-40 degrees to +100 degrees C), Q-temperature (-40 degrees to +125 degrees C) and M-temperature (-55 degrees to +125 degrees C). The devices will be in production in the first quarter of next year.
