Recently I blogged on a change in the way Xilinx reports the capacity of their new UltraScale FPGA devices. At the end of the blog I left with the following questions
Inquisitive minds are asking the following questions:-
- Why has Xilinx changed from Logic Cells to System Logic Cells?
- What exactly is a System Logic Cell?
- Do time machines actually exist?
In reverse, Xilinx does not have a time machine (sad L) and has not auto-magically built more capacity into the Xilinx UltraScale FPGA devices since they launched them. What they have done is changed their technology which requires an update to how they count the capacity of their FPGA’s.
First the challenge
