Xilinx Inc. has begun shipping what it says is the semiconductor industry's first 20nm product manufactured by TSMC, and the PLD industry's first 20nm All Programmable device. According to the company, the UltraScale devices deliver an ASIC-class advantage with the industry's only ASIC-class programmable architecture coupled with the Vivado ASIC-strength design suite and recently introduced UltraFast design methodology.

The UltraScale devices enable up to twice more realisable system-level performance and integration for customers, equivalent to a generation ahead of the competition, noted Xilinx.

"This announcement underscores our first-to-market leadership commitment of delivering

high-performance FPGAs," said Victor Peng, SVP and GM of products at Xilinx. "The next generation starts now with the shipment of our new UltraScale devices, building upon the tremendous momentum we have established with our 7 series."

Xilinx UltraScale devices enable next generation smarter systems with new high-performance architectural requirements for applications such as 400G OTN, packet processing and traffic management, 4X4 Mixed Mode LTE, WCDMA Radio, 4K2K and 8K displays, Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), and high-performance computing applications for the data centre.

Initial UltraScale device samples are shipping. General sampling begins in 1Q14.
