Xilinx enters into partnership with Samsung

Spartan-6 FPGA family attains full production qualification on Samsung Foundry's 45nm process

By CBR Staff Writer

Samsung Electronics and Xilinx, a provider of programmable platforms, said that Xilinx’s Spartan-6 FPGA family has attained full production qualification on 45-nanometer(nm) process of Samsung Electronics’ Foundry business (Samsung Foundry).

The process node, coupled with FPGA design, produces an optimal balance of cost efficiency, low power, and high performance, Spartan-6 family of FPGAs to address a wide variety of applications in cost sensitive markets, the companies claim.

The Spartan-6 family is fabricated on a low-power 45nm with dual-oxide process technology. Samsung Foundry’s 45nm LP process technology helped Xilinx to develop energy-efficient chips through a two-fold improvement in transistor density for a smaller chip size.

Samsung Foundry’s 45nm LP process node is in high volume manufacturing utilising the immersion lithography and model based optical proximity correction (OPC) coupled with design for manufacturing (DFM).

Vincent Tong, SVP of new product and worldwide quality at Xilinx, said: Strong collaboration between the engineering teams in Samsung Foundry and Xilinx in conjunction with our diligent New Product Introduction methodology has enabled us to simultaneously attain successful production qualification and a flawless manufacturing ramp.

Samsung Foundry’s manufacturing process coupled with Xilinx innovations in advanced power management technology enabled the new Spartan-6 FPGA family to achieve 65 percent lower power than previous Spartan families.
