Xilinx has shipped the Virtex-7 H580T FPGA, which is the first 3D heterogeneous all programmable product. The Virtex-7 H580T features eight 28 Gbps transceivers and plenty of logic capacity. The device is the only FPGA that can integrate additional line card functionality so designers can implement a dual 100G OTN transponder on a single chip.
Altera’s upcoming 28nm FPGAs will feature Embedded HardCopy Blocks, 28-Gbps embedded transceivers, and user-friendly partial reconfiguration. Embedded HardCopy Blocks will improve the density and I/O performance of next-generation Altera FPGAs. High-speed transceivers will help designers implement designs such as 400G systems on a single chip without the need for costly external components. Partial reconfiguration enables designers to reconfigure part of the FPGA while other sections remain running.
