Power consumption in FPGAs has become a primary factor for FPGA selection. Whether the concern is absolute power consumption, usable performance, battery life, thermal challenges, or reliability, power consumption is at the center of it all. Xilinx has been committed to power reduction for several generations of FPGAs and continues to study and implement many different power reduction strategies which span process changes and improvements, architecture changes, voltage scalable products, and software power optimization. Innovations in these areas yield dramatic results in the 7 Series FPGAs with a measured 50% power reduction compared to the previous generation.

Webcast Attendees Will Learn:

  • How to utilize the low power features, tools, and device options in 7 Series FPGAs to reduce overall power consumption.
  • The 7 Series process strategy and its effect on power in an FPGA design.
  • Details on Xilinx’s power optimization software, and how it can save power in your design.

Who Should Attend:

  • Hardware system designers
  • System architects
  • Project managers
  • PCB designers
