Artix® UltraScale+™ devices are cost-optimized FPGAs based on an advanced, production-proven 16nm architecture for exceptional performance/watt. Devices are enhanced with packaging innovation for ultra-compact form factor and compute density.
With up to 16Gb/s transceivers for advanced protocols and the highest FPGA DSP performance against competitive FPGA products, Artix UltraScale+ FPGAs match I/O bandwidth to compute to help maximize system performance for cost-sensitive and low-power applications in machine vision, networking, 4K broadcast, and a range of Industrial IoT and edge markets.
Artix UltraScale+ FPGAs are the industry’s only FPGA available in Integrated Fan-Out (InFO) for small form factor packaging (10.5x8.5mm). 70% smaller and 73% thinner than chip-scale packaging, Artix UltraScale+ FPGAs with InFO packaging deliver leading compute density, including serial I/O bandwidth and DSP compute/mm2. InFO packaging also improves thermal and power distribution, flight times, and signal integrity.
Artix UltraScale+ FPGAs offer up to 16Gb/s transceivers for advanced and emerging protocols in networking, video, and vision. Standards support includes PCIe® Gen4, 10GE Vision, CoaXPress 2.1, and 12G-SDI. The production-proven transceiver architecture includes power optimizations over 7 series FPGAs and equalization technology for optimal signal integrity.
Advanced FPGA DSP architecture in a cost-optimized device, Artix UltraScale+ DSP slices are optimized for both fixed- and floating-point computation, supporting diverse forms of compute for image and video processing, real-time control, wireless processing, and AI inference. The family offers 2.3X DSP compute compared to Artix-7 FPGAs and at least 2X DSP compute compared to competing FPGA offerings.
Multi-level security features help Artix UltraScale+ FPGAs maintain cybersecurity and IP protection. The architecture provides RSA-4096 Authentication, NIST-certified AES-CGM Decryption, DPA countermeasures, anti-tamper configuration, security monitor IP to adapt as security threats change across the product’s lifecycle.
A cost-optimized FPGA in the industry that offers up to 2.5Gb/s of MIPI performance, the Artix UltraScale+ family supports advanced camera sensor capture and display. Complete MIPI IP and reference design solutions are also available here. The family’s LVDS performance also enables a range of other protocols including SLVS-EC (for CMOS image sensors).
Production-proven UltraScale architecture built on TSMC’s 16nm low power FinFET process, allows scalability to Kintex® UltraScale+ and Virtex® UltraScale+ families. Developers can leverage the same IP, tool flow, and ecosystem to preserve design investment enabling a reusable platform across a multi-product portfolio.
With high DSP compute density in its class enabled by InFO small form factor packaging, the Artix® UltraScale+™ FPGA offers high-speed image processing and video pre-processing for factory automation. 12Gb/s and 16Gb/s line rates ensure support for the latest connectivity standards, including 10GigE Vision and CoaXPress 2.1 in the camera or at the frame grabber, as well as PCIe® Gen3 and Gen4* for high speed x86 CPU communication. High performance SLVS-EC v2.0, MIPI, and sub-LVDS support the latest sensor technology, beyond 150-megapixel resolution. A MicroBlaze™ processor in FPGA fabric enables system management for a robust embedded vision camera.
Artix UltraScale+ FPGA in InFO packaging (11.5x9.5mm) can efficiently implement broadcast-quality 4K60 UHD video pipelines for space-constrained applications, such as mini-converters, cameras, and KVM. Massively parallel DSP ensures scalable real-time video processing for multiple AV channels in a single device, and high-performance connectivity enables bridging between SDI, HDMI, DisplayPort, and 1Gb/10Gb Ethernet for live 4K AV-over-IP streaming.
Artix UltraScale+ FPGAs are a great fit for cost-optimized Nx10G or 25G systems, enabled by 12Gb/s and 16Gb/s transceivers and optimal transceiver count. A common architecture across mid-range and high-end UltraScale+ families allows developers to scale for 100G and 400G systems. The FPGA family is also ideal for bridging for Nx100G systems. Its programmable I/O and PCIe® Gen3/Gen4 provide flexible connectivity and system control across network processing units, and its multi-level security features–including bitstream encryption and DPA counter-measures–provide IP protection and advanced safeguards against network intrusion and cyber attacks.
