Xilinx Virtex-7 Field Programmable Gate Arrays are devices enabled by stacked silicon interconnect (SSI) technology to address system requirements for applications. FPGAs are semiconductor devices that are based around a matrix of configurable logic blocks (CLBs) connected via programmable interconnects. Virtex 7 is used in applications such as 10G to 100G networking, portable radar, and ASIC Prototyping. Virtex-7 is among four FPGA families (Spartan-7, Artix-7, and Kintex-7 are the others). Virtex 7 devices also address system requirements ranging from small form factor, cost-sensitive, high-volume applications to ultra high-end connectivity bandwidth, logic capacity, and signal processing capability. Virtex-7 FPGAs are optimized for system performance and integration at 28nm with up to 96 advanced serial transceivers.
