Aimed at spurring innovation and growth in the 40- and 100-Gigabit Ethernet (GE) market, Xilinx has added the Virtex-5 TXT platform to its family of 65nm FPGAs.

Although the new Ethernet standards will impact every segment of the network from long-haul to interconnect, initial demand is expected to come from servers, which will account for just over 40% of the 40/100Gbps Ethernet market by 2016. Even with 40Gbps Ethernet, there will still be a need for 100Gbps, especially for switch connections, which will be 50% of the 100GE market.
