Xilinx Virtex-5Q Family

Virtex-5Q Family

    The Defense-grade Virtex®-5Q family provides the newest, most capable features in the aerospace and defense industry from the reprogrammable FPGA market leader. The Virtex-5Q family delivers on Size, Weight, and Power - Cost (SWAP-C) reduction requirements while increasing performance and density for higher integration. Based on the proven commercial Virtex-5 FPGAs, the Virtex-5Q family offers greater operational temperature ranges off the shelf to fit the needs of the aerospace and defense customer base as well as ruggedized packaging for protection against tin-whiskering and harsh manufacturing processes. Mask-set control and long-term product availability are also standard. Using the second generation Advanced Silicon Modular Block (ASMBL™) column-based architecture, the Virtex-5Q family contains four distinct sub-families, the most offered by any FPGA vendor.

Each sub-family contains a different ratio of features to address the needs of a wide variety of advanced designs. In addition to the most advanced, high-performance logic fabric, Virtex-5Q FPGAs contain many dedicated system-level blocks, including powerful 36 Kbit block RAM/FIFOs, second generation 25 x 18 DSP slices, SelectIO™ technology with built-in digitally-controlled impedance, ChipSync™ technology source-synchronous interface blocks, system monitor functionality, enhanced clock management tiles (CMTs) with integrated digital clock managers (DCM) and phaselocked-loop (PLL) clock generators, and advanced configuration options. Additional device-dependent features include power-optimized, high-speed serial transceiver blocks for enhanced serial connectivity, PCI Express® compliant integrated Endpoint blocks, tri-mode Ethernet Media Access Controllers (Ethernet MACs), and high-performance PowerPC® 440 microprocessor embedded blocks. 

These features allow advanced logic designers to build the highest levels of performance and functionality into their FPGA-based systems. The Virtex-5Q LX, LXT, SXT, and FXT FPGAs also include advanced high-speed serial connectivity and link/transaction layer capability. Virtex-5Q FPGAs offer the best solution for addressing the needs of aerospace and defense logic, DSP, and embedded systems designers for a host of applications including imaging, secure applications, electronic warfare, packet processing, and more.
