UMC Group and Xilinx Inc. announce a joint effort that has produced a 0.18-micron FPGA family. The Virtex-E FPGA family is a 2 million-gate device with 150-million transistors that supports multiple gigabit/second I/O bandwidths and 266 MHz double data rate memory performance. The XCV3200E 3-million-gate FPGA is expected in the first quarter of year 2000. The 2-million-gate XCV2000E supports twice the system-gate density and 200% higher I/O performance of the original Xilinx Virtex FPGAs. The Virtex-E family will consist of 11 members from 50,000 to 3.2-million system gates by next year. The Virtex-E FPGAs are said to deliver the performance and density previously found only with ASICs.
