Xilinx 7 series FPGAs highlight industry 100G technology leadership in optical and wired OTN solutions

SAN JOSE, USA: Xilinx Inc. announced participation at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference and Exposition 2012 in Los Angeles, from March 6-8, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Booth #737. At the conference, attendees will see how Xilinx 7 series FPGAs, including the Virtex-7 2000T device, the world's highest capacity FPGA, can reach new levels of IP core integration to improve overall BOM cost while lowering total system power for next-generation OTN architectures.

Xilinx experts will present the advantages of Stacked Silicon Interconnect (SSI) device portfolio with an unprecedented range of logic density and highest OTN-compliant transceiver count. Xilinx booth visitors can also preview the latest information on Virtex-7 HT FPGAs, built with four to sixteen 28 Gbps transceivers specifically designed to interface to next-generation CFP2 optics modules and up to seventy-two 13.1 Gbps transceivers offering up to 2.8 Tbps full duplex throughput.

This extends the Virtex-7 family's total system performance, with 2x the logic capacity, 1.3x greater memory bandwidth, 2x better static power efficiency and now 2.7x higher bandwidth over the nearest competing devices.

Xilinx will highlight their 28nm 7 series FPGAs and wired OTN solutions that provide the design platforms of choice for high bandwidth communications. Working with the wired Targeted Design Platforms (TDPs) and Targeted Reference Designs (TRDs) combined with Xilinx design tools, system designers will realize a faster time to market for their OTN applications.

At OFC, Xilinx will also preview their size optimized, standalone OTN family of IP cores, including the forward error correction (FEC) portfolio and the Scalable Serdes Framer Interface standard (SFI-S) IP core also used as part of the Xilinx advanced OTN solution suite.

"Xilinx's highly specialized portfolio of FPGA solutions for the 10G to 200G+ optical wired communications market enable system designers of next-generation networks with scalable platforms that could reduce development risk and result in a faster time-to-market," said Abhi Dugar, research manager, IDC's Semiconductor Wired Communications Group.

"With the constant changing pace and integration taking place in today's optical networks market, silicon vendors that are delivering proven background technology to system vendors are leading the way. By combining high density FPGAs with 28G transceivers and their ability to further integrate size-performance, optimized OTN framers and forward error correction IP, all on 28nm process technology, Xilinx is becoming a total OTN solutions supplier and is well positioned against ASSP solutions."
