Stocks in this article: XLNX

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced its fourth generation secure architecture with Information Assurance and Anti-Tamper IP core support for defense-grade 7 series FPGAs and Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoCs. These unique high reliability, defense-grade devices reduce the risk and cost of deploying the latest Aerospace and Defense (A&D) systems by utilizing off-the-shelf reprogrammable Xilinx® FPGAs and SoCs. Manufactured with state-of-the-art 28nm process technology, all devices are optimized for high performance and the lowest total power. Xilinx defense-grade products are fully pin-compatible to commercial-grade equivalents for low cost prototyping and are offered off-the-shelf.

Xilinx's more than 20-year legacy working with both government and major defense contractors, combined with Xilinx's fourth generation secure silicon, Information Assurance methodology and DoD 5000 Series compliant Anti-Tamper Security Monitor IP core (SECMON), forms the basis for Xilinx's 'fail safe heritage'. This fail safe heritage removes any single point of failure in systems that may compromise a mission, a key attribute in assuring secure applications functionality.

"Xilinx is the only major FPGA vendor offering a distinct defense-grade product line with fail safe heritage," said Yousef Khalilollahi, senior director, Aerospace and Defense at Xilinx. "In addition to the secure capabilities, the defense-grade 7 series FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs offer mask set control, ruggedized packaging with fully-leaded (Pb) content for harsh environmental operation, full extended temperature range testing, long term availability and anti-counterfeiting features."

Extensive testing and experience from previous generations of devices has resulted in Xilinx's latest defense-grade offering to provide the lowest cost, lowest power and most flexible solution to developers who need to meet the demanding requirements of a variety of applications in military communications, avionics, electronic warfare (EW), Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance (ISR) systems and missiles and munitions.
