LONDON – Xilinx Inc. has announced it has started to supply 7 Series FPGAs made using 28-nm HPL manufacturing process technology from foundry TSMC. The first device is the Kintex-7 K325T.
The Kintex-7 FPGA family uses the same architecture that will be shared across the 7 series, 28-nm families so Xilinx said its customers can begin FPGA development now for designs that may ultimately migrate to Artix-7 and Virtex-7 FPGAs.
Kintex-7 K325T FPGA initial samples are shipping now, Xilinx said. The Virtex-7 485T FPGA and the 2 million logic cell 2000T will begin initial sampling in August and November of 2011, respectively. Artix-7 FPGA initial samples will ship first quarter of 2012.

Since the marketing idiots who name these things do not link part numbers to attributes, what is a "Kintex-7 K325T"?
Thanks for at least telling us what a Virtex-7 485T (which I assume is derived from 4*85 then shift right three times, logic cells) is.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
