Xilinx FPGA to Support 25G per Lane Copper Cabling at Five Meters

Xilinx announced that its Virtex UltraScale FPGAs 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.

"With Virtex UltraScale FPGAs in volume production, and as the industry's only FPGA supplier compliant to the 25Gb per lane copper cable and backplane specifications, we are committed to helping our customers utilize the lowest risk and most cost effective solutions for their data centers," said Kirk Saban, senior director of FPGA and SoC product management and marketing.
