Breaking The Three Laws


Xilinx UltraScale VU440 FPGA Production Devices Finally Available

It’s been about a year that I have been blogging on the new Xilinx UltraScale VU440 FPGA devices and Xilinx is finally shipping production devices. I say finally not because they are late, they are actually shipping exactly as communicated, but finally due to the pent up demand for systems utilizing these large prototyping capable devices is bursting at the seams. Synopsys is shipping hundreds of systems to deliver on our backlog.

While at the Synopsys Corporate offices this week I was able to visit the lab and snap off a couple of pictures of the newly built HAPS-80 production systems utilizing the production Xilinx UltraScale VU440 devices and running the production images generated by HAPS ProtoCompiler. I’m biased of course but I think this is a pretty great looking setup. What do you think?

And to celebrate I even created a new one slide version of the HAPS-80 with HAPS ProtoCompiler benefits… enjoy.. but I doubt you will see this version in any “official” Synopsys slide deck 🙂

Don't expect to see this in the official Synopsys presentation slide deck
