Xilinx, Inc. today announced that its Spartan-7 family of FPGAs is now available for order and shipping to standard lead times. As a key member of Xilinx’s Cost-Optimized Portfolio, this device family is designed to meet the needs of cost-sensitive markets by delivering low cost and low power entry points that are I/O optimized for connectivity with industry leading performance-per-watt.
Available in small form factor packaging, Spartan-7 FPGAs offer expanded temperature ranges of –40 to +125°C in commercial devices. The Spartan-7 family also offers enhanced processor scalability at lower cost entry points, with 50% higher embedded performance than previous generations using Xilinx 32-bit MicroBlaze soft processor IP. Spartan-7 devices also offer a layered security solution with AES-256 bitstream decryption, SHA-256 bitstream authentication, and on-chip eFUSE key storage.
Now for the first time, Spartan FPGA-based designs can take advantage of the Vivado Design Suite, giving users even more productivity advantages. All Spartan-7 FPGAs are supported by the no-cost Vivado HL WebPACK Edition, as well as the Vivado HL Design and System Editions.
