Xilinx Inc. has announced the availability of the Xilinx Crossbar Switch, a programmable parameterizable custom design implementing digital cross-point switching functions on the company's Virtex-II and Virtex-II Pro FPGA devices.

Suitable for use in applications such as digital cross-connects, add-drop multiplexers, video, broadcast, and ATM switches, the design exploits the configurable routing within the FPGA to deliver a solution that is claimed by the company to be smaller and more cost effective than a standard multiplexer-based cross-point solution.

The switch has up to 1,024 I/O ports, up to 200Mbps capacity per channel, and employs the JBits java-based application used for manipulating design bitstreams, to manage partial reconfiguration.
