Size: 4.5 GB
Renewed professional solution with full support for FPGA (FPGA) 7-Series which provides improved tools with a new team Design Flow to speed up the design at all levels of the project.About Xilinx Inc. The company Xilinx Inc. - American developer and manufacturer of integrated circuit programmable logic (PLD FPGA). Founded in 1984 the company in the 2006/2007 financial year achieved a turnover of 1.84 billion with net income of $ 350 million. Share of Xilinx FPGAs in the world market is according to the company 51%.
The company's Xilinx programmable chips: - CPLD (complex programmable logic device)
Chips differ the most simple structure and significant limitations in designing devices for them but they do have one advantage - they do not need a configuration ROM. Limitations include the "greed" on the triggers and lack of flexibility. However the CPLD are easy to learn and therefore are ideal for getting started with FPGAs in general.
- FPGA (field-programmable gate array)
Chip is much more complicated arranged (some even contain several processor cores PowerPC) requires a configuration ROM (this is explained by the fact that the chips themselves are built on technology Static RAM that is every time I turn them to "load") but they are capable of accommodate a much more complex and larger projects than the CPLD and flexible enough for the designer (in particular removed the restriction on the number of triggers).
- Configuration ROM
Intended to boot SRAM FPGA. Family XC17xx - the oldest is a single programmable chip. XC18xx - EEPROM which means that they can be reprogrammed repeatedly. Platform Flash - a new family configuration chips made by technology Flash ROM.
Varieties FPGA - IC FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) reprogrammable chips with traditional architecture PAL (Complex Programmable Logic Devices or CPLD) - as well as their means of designing and debugging manufactured by Xilinx the device uses digital processing of information - for example in the systems of telecommunications and computing and peripheral testing equipment household appliances. The company manufactures chips in various types of buildings and in several versions including industrial military and radiation-resistant.
About Xilinx ISE Design Suite 13.1
New to the award winning design tool and IP suite are enhancements which improve productivity across SoC design teams and progression towards true plug-and-play IP that targets Spartan (R) -6 Virtex (R) -6 and 7 series FPGAs including the industry-leading 2-million-logic-cell Virtex-7 2000T device. Focusing on decreasing development time and cost ISE Design Suite 13 introduces accelerated verification plug-and-play IP with IP-XACT Support and a new team design methodology that shortens design As Xilinx delivers FPGAs with multi-million system gate capacities such as the Virtex-7 2000T device built using Stacked Silicon Interconnect technology as well as capabilities to combine serial parallel and digital signal processing on a single chip and offer transceiver speeds of up to 28 Gbps the need for productivity is paramount in these highly complex designs.
To stay on the productivity curve however the industry needs to achieve 50 percent cycle time improvement according to the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors.
With over half of the design cycle spent in verification the ISE Design Suite 13 new hardware Co-Simulation capability and AMBA (R) 4 AXI4 (Advanced Extensible Interface) bus functional simulation models provide direct productivity gains for design verification teams.
