Xilinx has announced what it claims is the world's first single-FPGA solution for telecommunications equipment manufacturers developing Ethernet bridging and switching solutions. Aimed at spurring innovation and growth in the 40- and 100-Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) market, Xilinx has added the Virtex-5 TXT platform to its high-performance family of 65-nm field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
The Virtex-5 TXT platform consists of two devices that deliver a high number of 6,5 Gbps serial transceivers, and are fully supported with application-specific IP, development tools, and reference designs for implementing high-bandwidth protocol bridging.
With its 48 6,5 Gbps GTX transceivers, the new platform is optimised for 100 GbE applications. It is designed to improve signal integrity for reliable operation of 10/100 Gbps links, lower power consumption per channel for better reliability, and provide programmable support for multiple protocols, in order to adapt to evolving standards for the interface between 100 Gbps optical modules and the media access controller (MAC).
