Overview:
Xilinx 7 series FPGAs deliver the highest
aggregate bandwidth in the industry with up to 2.78 Tb/s. Xilinx’s largest FPGA,
with up to 96 13.1 Gb/s transceivers, delivers more bandwidth than any competing
device. In this webcast we walk through the most common design steps, discuss
Xilinx’s complete suite of tools and IP to enable designers to maximize
productivity and reduce time to market barriers and explore how Xilinx’s
scalable serial solutions enable faster design completion with the highest
signal integrity.

 Attendees will learn:

  • Xilinx 7 series FPGA transceiver technology delivers superior jitter
    performance, stronger equalization, higher aggregate bandwidth and the highest
    transceiver counts
  • Key solutions to common serial design challenges with 7 series FPGAs
  • Xilinx offers IBIS AMI models for simulation and IBERT with 2D eye scan for
    on-chip debug
  • Xilinx IP portfolio and Targeted Design Platforms for design acceleration
