Xilinx Ships Virtex-6 LX760 FPGA Devices

Initial Xilinx Virtex-6 LX760 FPGA samples are now shipping. Virtex-6 LX760 devices enable engineers who need raw logic density and I/O performance to get started on their projects today using the Xilinx ISE Design Suite 11.4. According to Xilinx, Virtex-6 LX760 is the largest FPGA available for delivery with immediate design tool support. The Virtex-6 LX760 device offers more than two and a half times the density of the largest Virtex-5 device.

The Virtex-6 LX760 device leads the industry in its I/O count and embedded memory with 1,200 SelectIO pins and 25,920Kbits Block RAM to meet system partitioning as well as data buffering requirements. In order to serve the needs of applications requiring the highest logic and embedded memory requirements, the LX760 device is optimized to tradeoff high-speed serial transceivers for higher I/O, logic, and embedded memory capacity.

The Virtex-6 LX760 device is ideal for any application that requires intensive computational performance and high logic density. For example, the new large-capacity device enables designers to use a single-FPGA to prototype or emulate a greater range of ASIC designs than ever before. In addition to high logic capacity, the LX760 device offers a higher I/O count than competing FPGAs to simplify the challenge of partitioning a large ASIC netlist across multiple FPGAs. In addition, ISE Design Suite version 11.4 reduces compile time by 30% to enable large, complex and highly utilized Virtex-6 designs as well as increased productivity through more design turns per day.
