Xilinx Inc. has developed a new architecture that is expected to improve significantly the deployment of multiple domain-specific FPGA platforms with an optimal blend of features. At the heart of the ASMBL architecture is a modular framework of silicon subsystems, enabling a new FPGA development methodology for rapid and cost-effective deployment of platforms targeted to different application domains.

Xilinx plans to base future Xilinx platform FPGAs on the new architecture. Built on more than 100 new technical innovations, the next generation Virtex Series Platform, slated for first half of 2004, will be the first FPGA family to embody the new architecture. The new domain-specific devices will deliver more than 1B transistors in a single device.

"The ASMBL architecture holds the key to accelerating our broad expansion of platform FPGAs into markets previously served by ASICs and ASSPs," said Erich Goetting, VP and general manager of the Advanced Product Group at Xilinx. "With ASMBL, Xilinx is adopting a highly-efficient FPGA development model for delivering off-the-shelf, flexible solutions ideally suited to different application domains."
