Xilinx Inc. has added three new devices and small form factor packaging to their 65 nm Virtex-5 LX and LXT FPGA platforms as the adoption of programmable logic in new markets drives new cost and density requirements.

Xilinx says that the addition of the Virtex-5 LX155 device to the logic-optimized LX platform, and the addition of the LX20T and LX155T devices plus a new small footprint 19mm FF323 package to the Virtex-5 LXT platform with low power transceivers will enable new levels of cost-optimization for industrial networking, medical imaging, motor control, defense and high-performance computing applications.

On the low end of the density range, Xilinx is adding the new Virtex-5 LX20T device to enable customers to implement more cost-effectively serial standards into a low-density device. For applications such as motor control, the Virtex-5 LX20T device offers designers a single device solution for integrating microcontroller, waveform generation, networking protocols and other functions in a cost-effective high-performance FPGA with low-logic consumption. The Virtex-5 LX20T is pin compatible with the Virtex-5 LX30T for easy design migration and can take full advantage of the small footprint 19 mm FF323 package.

Xilinx is adding the Virtex-5 LX155 and LX155T devices to address cost and programmable resource requirements in many compute intensive applications such as medical imaging, industrial control and high-performance computing. The devices utilize an innovative package migration capability that enables customers to design in either Virtex-5 LX110 and LX110T devices or LX220 and LX220T devices in a package that is pin compatible with the new LX155 and LX155T devices. The DSP optimized Virtex-5 SX95T device is also pin compatible with the Virtex-5 LX155 and LX155T devices.

Designers can begin their designs for the Virtex-5 LX20T, LX155T, and LX155 devices using ISE 9.2i SP4 development software and supporting documentation. All devices will be available in production by Q2. Pricing for these devices is available now; customers can contact their authorized Xilinx representative to obtain a quote based on volume needs.
