Xilinx Adds Dual-Core Zynq UltraScale+ FPGAS Devices

15 June 2016

Xilinx, Inc. has introduced dual-core members to its Zynq UltraScale+ multiprocessor SoC (MPSoC) field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for dual application and real-time processor combinations.

The dual-core family members add processing scalability at a lower-cost entry point to the current Zynq family, which offers quad 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53s, dual 32-bit dual-core Cortex-R5s, a graphics processing unit and a video codec unit. The dual-core versions of the Zynq family can be used for applications such as motor control, sensor fusion, medical endoscopy and handheld radios.

The UltraScale+ devices use Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation's (TSMC) 16nm FinFet process technology and promise a 5x system-level performance per watt, Xilinx says. The Zynq MPSoC family includes a host of integrated peripherals, safety and security features, and advanced power management.
