Xilinx today announced that its Spartan-7 FPGA family is now available for order entry and shipping to standard lead times. Spartan-7 devices family are designed for cost-sensitive system designs. They are low-cost, low-power FPGAs. Spartan-7 devices are available in packages as small as 8x8mm (with 100 user I/O pins!) for designs where real estate for circuitry is limited—small video cameras for example—while still offering huge I/O capabilities.
Here’s a table showing the key features of Spartan-7 device family members:
Spartan-7 family members deliver 50% better embedded performance than previous generations when using Xilinx 32-bitMicroBlaze soft processor IP. These devices also incorporate layered security features including AES-256 bitstream decryption, SHA-256 bitstream authentication, and on-chip eFUSE key storage.
