Xilinx Inc. has revealed the first customer shipment of what it boasts as the industry's first high-end FinFET FPGA built using TSMC's 16FF+ process. The Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA devices join the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs and Kintex UltraScale+ FPGAs showcasing the availability of all three families of the Xilinx 16nm portfolio.

Virtex UltraScale+ devices build on the success of the Virtex UltraScale family, the industry's only 20nm high-end FPGAs, stated the company. With industry leading capabilities such as 32G transceivers, PCIe Gen 4 integrated cores, and UltraRAM on-chip memory technology, the devices provide the required performance and integration needed for next generation data centre, 400G and terabit wired communications, test and measurement, and aerospace and defence markets.

Virtex UltraScale+ devices are shipping. The UltraScale+ portfolio is supported in the current release of the Vivado Design Suite 2015.4.
