Xilinx, Inc. and Open-Silicon, Inc. Announces Hybrid Memory Cube Controller IP for Xilinx Virtex(R)-7 FPGAs

Xilinx, Inc. and Open-Silicon, Inc. announced Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) controller IP for Xilinx Virtex(R)-7 FPGAs. The high-performance nature of Virtex-7 FPGAs enables system developers to take advantage of the ultra-high memory bandwidth of the Hybrid Memory Cube and utilize the host-side IP to decrease time to market while providing over 1 Tb/s of serial bandwidth. Hybrid Memory Cube is a high performance memory solution that delivers unprecedented levels of bandwidth, power efficiency and reliability for networking and computing systems. The availability of new host-side HMC Controller IP furthers the widespread adoption of this revolutionary technology. The Open-Silicon HMC Controller IP offers a seamless interface to HMC. The high-performance controller offers an ultra-low latency core coupled with a flexible user interface. Optimized for Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA implementation, the IP supports HMC links operating at 12.5 Gb/s per lane. The HMC controller has been tested on Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGAs and, along with the accompanying software stack, allows for the quick integration and evaluation of the HMC technology and performance testing of the HMC links.
