This paper describes how Xilinx is multiplying the value of 20nm with the UltraScalefamily of FPGAs and 3D ICs for the next generation of smarter, high performance systems. The architecture’s technological breakthroughs are discussed, including its re-architected FPGA core and thoughtful mix of system-optimized features, enabling massive I/O and memory bandwidth, data flow, and processing performance with a target of 90% device utilization without performance degradation. Key capabilities are outlined for applications related to packet processing, waveform processing, video and imaging processing, and high performance computing.
