Xilinx Transceiver Breakthrough Brings Greater Cost Efficiency to Data Center Interconnects

Virtex UltraScale Devices: Industry's First FPGA to Support 25Gb per Lane Copper Cabling at Five Meters

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 2, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced a transceiver technology breakthrough, bringing greater cost efficiency to data center interconnects. Xilinx's Virtex® UltraScale™ devices have achieved compliance to the 25GE, 50GE and 100GE copper cable and backplane IEEE and related specifications which supports up to five meters of copper cabling in the data center and up to one meter of backplane interconnect. These specifications include the IEEE 802.3bj 100GBASE-CR4/KR4, IEEE 802.3by 25GBASE-CR/CR-S/KR/KR-S, and 25 Gigabit Ethernet Consortium 50GBASE-CR2/KR2. Data center customers can now leverage nx25G lanes of copper cabling versus optics for more cost and power-optimized solutions to connect servers to top-of-rack switches using any off-the-shelf, specification-compliant vendor.
