The first 15Gb/s Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) interface for All Programmable UltraScale devices marks its entry into the industry through the collaboration between Xilinx Inc. and Pico Computing Inc., both members of the Hybrid Memory Cube Consortium (HMCC.

The Xilinx UltraScale devices support the full HMC bandwidth of four lanes, comprised of 64 transceivers running up to 15Gb/s. Pico Computing's HMC controller IP yields high memory bandwidth and outstanding performance/watt in a small but modular and highly scalable footprint. The combined solution enables engineers to begin 15Gb/s HMC designs for applications in domains such as high performance computing, packet processing, waveform processing, and image and video processing.

HMC is a high performance memory solution that delivers unprecedented levels of bandwidth, power efficiency, and reliability. The HMCC has developed the HMC technology specification and continues to build the ecosystem to enable its widespread adoption.

"Customers can now leverage the industry's only shipping 20nm FPGAs along with a validated IP core to bring their 15Gb/s HMC designs to market today," said Tamara Schmitz, director of technical marketing for power and memory at Xilinx. "UltraScale FPGAs are the only devices currently available that can support all four HMC lanes to enable full memory bandwidth with additional transceivers for datapath and control signals."

Pico Computing's HMC controller is highly parametesized to yield optimised system configurations to meet customers' specific design objectives. The number of HMC links addressed, the number and width of internal ports, clock speeds, power, performance, area, and other parameters can be "dialed in" to yield precisely the performance required.
