Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGAs

Cutting-Edge 20 nm Technology

The Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA brings ASIC-class performance, clock management, and power management to a highly capable, next-generation 20 nm chip.

This user-programmable, reconfigurable FPGA enables increased system performance from its 8.2 TeraMACs of DSP compute performance, multiple speed grades, and 16G backplane-capable transceivers.

Kintex UltraScale keeps a focus on cost-effective, performance-oriented logic processing with its next-generation stacked silicon interconnect (SSI) technology and high DSP and block RAM-to-logic ratios.

Scalable, Rapid-Transmitting Signaling

Boasting more than half a million LEs, 424,000 logic cells, and almost 2,000 DSP slices, as well as Gen3 PCI Express interfaces, the highly-capable Kintex UltraScale FPGA is able to rapidly receive and transmit signals in even the harshest of environments to ensure signal integrity when it matters most.

X-ES offers an FPGA Development Kit (FDK) for our boards that support the Kintex UltraScale FPGA, which includes an X-ES tested and proven example design that assists developers and allows them to focus on application development and not on hardware integration.
