Xilinx Shatters Record with World's Highest Capacity FPGA: Virtex-7 2000T

The Virtex®-7 2000T FPGA is the first device to use 2.5-D IC stacked silicon interconnect technology to deliver "More than Moore" capacity: 2 million logic cells, 6.8 billion transistors - 2x the capacity of the largest competing device.

World’s Highest Capacity FPGA - Now Shipping

The Virtex®-7 2000T FPGA delivers greater than 2X the capacity and bandwidth offered by the largest monolithic devices while delivering the time-to-volume advantages of smaller die. Utilizing innovative 2.5D Stacked Silicon Interconnect (SSI) technology, the Virtex-7 2000T FPGA integrates 2 million logic cells, 6.8 billion transistors and 12.5Gb/s serial transceivers on a single device making it the world’s highest capacity FPGA offering unprecedented system integration in addition to ASIC prototyping and ASIC replacement capabilities.

Industry's Highest System Performance

Virtex-7 FPGAs are optimized for advanced systems requiring the highest performance and highest bandwidth connectivity. The Virtex-7 family is one of three product families built on a common 28nm architecture designed for maximum power efficiency and delivers 2X higher system performance at 50% lower power than previous generation FPGAs.

The Virtex-7 family consists of T, XT and HT devices to meet a wide array of market requirements:

Virtex-7 T devices deliver unprecedented levels of capacity and performance enabling ASIC prototyping, emulation and replacement

  • Up to 2M logic cells, 6.8 billion transistors and 12.5Gb/s serial transceivers on a single device
  • Enables non-linear integration to reduce board space, lower power and increase system performance
  • Delivers highest bandwidth, lowest latency by eliminating multiple chip bottlenecks
  • Enables rapid development and emulation of advance node ASICs

Virtex-7 XT devices offer the highest processing bandwidth with high performance transceivers, DSP and BRAM

  • Integrates up to 96 10G Base KR  backplane capable  serial transceivers
  • 5.3 TMACs of DSP 
  • 67 Mbits of internal memory
  • >1M logic cells

Virtex-7 HT devices with integrated 28Gbps serial transceivers offer an unprecedented 2.8Tb/s of serial bandwidth

  • Up to 16 x 28 Gb/s serial transceivers for ultra-high bandwidth applications
  • Optimized for next-generation 100G, nx100G and 400G line cards with CFP2 optical interfaces
  • Superior jitter performance to exceed CEI 28G specifications

EasyPath™-7 devices offer a conversion-free path to volume production.

Unified Architecture Enables Scalability and Increases Productivity

Fabricated on a high-performance, low-power (HPL) 28nm process, all 7 series FPGAs share a unified architecture. This innovation enables design migration across the Artix™-7, Kintex™-7, and Virtex-7 families. System manufacturers can easily scale successful designs to address adjacent markets requiring reduced cost and power or increased performance and capability. The adoption of AMBA 4, AXI4 specification as part of the interconnect strategy supporting Plug-and-Play FPGA design further improves productivity with IP reuse, portability, and predictability.
