Xilinx, specialists in adaptive and intelligent computing, have announced the expansion of their Virtex Ultrascale+ family to include the VU19P: with 35 billion transistors and nine million system logic cells, the VU19P offers a high logic density and I/O count, furthering the emulation and prototyping of developing ASIC and SoC technologies within sectors such as test & measurement, networking and aerospace. 

“The VU19P enables developers to accelerate hardware validation and begin software integration before their ASIC or SoC is available,” said Sumit Shah, senior director, product line marketing and management, Xilinx: “This is our third generation of world-record FPGAs. First was the Virtex-7 2000T, followed by the Virtex UltraScale VU440, and now the Virtex UltraScale+ VU19P. But this is more than silicon technology; we’re providing robust and proven tool flows and IP to support it.”

“Arm relies on Xilinx devices as part of our process for validating our next-generation processor IP and SoC technology,” said Tran Nguyen, director of design services, Arm: “The new VU19P will further enable Arm, and many others in our ecosystem, to accelerate the design, development and validation of our most ambitious roadmap technologies.”
