Xilinx Inc. has rolled out public access support for 16nm UltraScale+ families such as the Vivado Design Suite HLx editions, embedded software development tools, Xilinx Power Estimator, and technical documentation for Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC and Kintex UltraScale+ devices.

According to the company, designers can now validate the UltraScale+ portfolio's 2-5X performance/watt improvement over 28nm offerings for their specific designs. This announcement marks the industry's first publicly available tools for 16nm devices, enabling broad market adoption, indicated the company.

The Vivado Design Suite has been co-optimised to fully exploit the UltraScale+ portfolio's performance/watt advantages and the complete catalog of SmartCORE and LogiCORE IP. This announcement follows previous UltraScale+ portfolio milestones, including first tape out and early access tools in July 2015, and first customer shipment in September 2015.

Zynq UltraScale+ and Kintex UltraScale+ devices are supported in the Vivado Design Suite 2015.4, HLx editions. Also available for download are the Xilinx Software Design Kit, Xilinx Power Estimator and technical documentation for Zynq UltraScale+ and Kintex UltraScale+ families.
