Xilinx Inc. and TSMC have announced to create the "fastest time-to-market" and highest performance FPGAs to be built on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET process (16FinFET) – a programme Xilinx calls ‘FinFast.’

The two companies are providing dedicated resources as part of a ‘one-team’ approach, and will work together to co-optimise the FinFET process with Xilinx’s UltraScale architecture. UltraScale is Xilinx’s new ASIC-class architecture, developed to scale from 20nm planar, through 16nm and beyond FinFET technologies, and from monolithic through 3D ICs.

The programme will deliver 16FinFET test chips later in 2013 and first product in 2014.

"The companies are also engaged in leveraging TSMC’s CoWoS 3D IC manufacturing flow for the highest levels of 3D IC systems integration and system-level performance," said Xilinx.

"Products from this collaboration will be announced at a later date."

“We are committed to working with Xilinx to bring the industry’s highest performance and highest integration programmable devices quickly to market,” said Morris Chang, TSMC chairman and CEO. “Together we will deliver world-class products on TSMC’s 20SoC technology in 2013 and on 16FinFET technology in 2014.”
