Encryption is a computationally intensive function, which makes extremely high-performance implementations a serious system design challenge. The Xilinx Virtex-5 LXT platform meets this challenge with performanceoptimized features ideal for 10 Gbps and faster implementations of leadingedge encryption algorithms.

A world-class programmable fabric provides superior logic performance. Integrated GTP serial transceivers, hard PCI Express (PCIe) Endpoint blocks, and highly flexible SelectIO technology enable tremendous I/O bandwidth. And 65-nm device densities provide a family of devices appropriate to almost any system design need.
