An example of a defense-grade application for the Xilinx 7 series FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs for secure communications solutions is a device with Single-chip cryptography (SCC) capability with Security Monitor 3.0 IP core for physical design security. SCC combines the functionality of multiple FPGAs into a single device, enabling A&D product developers to reduce SWaP-C of systems through higher levels of integration. Additionally, the inherent reprogrammability of these devices overcome the limitations of traditional long lead- time ASIC and ASSP approaches by allowing multiple capabilities that have the same hardware configuration. These devices specifically address the demands of modern portable wireless A&D systems that must run on battery power while being absolutely secure.
All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs and Tools
System designers are empowered to maximize system performance, lower power, preserve design flexibility, provide superior programmable systems integration and reduce BOM costs with Xilinx's All Programmable, production available defense-grade FPGAs and SoCs including Virtex®, Kintex™ and Artix™ FPGA families and the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs.
Delivering unchallenged industry leadership in logic, memory, and DSP capacity, 7 series FPGAs with DSP capabilities combine massive DSP processing bandwidth and low power with easy-to-use design flows to insure designs are delivered on-time and on-spec, while providing peak performance, the highest performance DSP at any price to price-optimized performance for volume applications at the right price. And with FPGA co-processing, traditional DSP device acceleration is given an unparalleled performance boost.System designers can realize a major breakthrough in SoC-level integration with the All Programmable Zynq-7000 devices and gain ASIC levels of performance and power consumption with the flexibility of an FPGA and ease of programming of a microprocessor. With the Vivado™ Design Suite, Vivado High-Level Synthesis (HLS) accelerates design implementation by enabling C, C++ and SystemC specifications to be directly targeted into Xilinx All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs and 3D ICs without the need to manually create RTL. Advanced algorithms used today in A&D applications, as well as a wide variety of other market applications, are more sophisticated than ever before. Vivado HLS provides system and design architects with a faster and more robust way of delivering quality designs. Availability The Xilinx All Programmable families of defense-grade FPGAs and SoCs are available in I-temperature (-40 degrees to +100 degrees C), Q-temperature (-40 degrees to +125 degrees C) and M-temperature (-55 degrees to +125 degrees C). The devices will be in production Q1 of 2013. For more information, visit: http://www.xilinx.com/applications/aerospace-and-defense/index.htm.
