Xilinx’s Spartan 7 FPGA now in Production

xilinx spartan 7

Xilinx’s Spartan 7 FPGA are now available for ordering and shipping under standard lead times.

The Spartan 7 FPGA family is a low-end FPGA used to meet the needs of cost-sensitive applications, by delivering low cost and low power entry points. Xilinx is using these two points to advertise and promote the new FPGA family.

Spartan 7 FPGA are built on 28nm technology, and the devices are suited for industrial, consumer, and automotive applications, including any-to-any connectivity, sensor fusion, and embedded vision.

One of the biggest advantages of the new Spartan 7 line is that it is enabled by Xilinx’s Vivado HLx Design Suite WebPack, meaning that developers will have a much easier time programming the chips.

Other advantages include:

  • The new chip uses half of the total power of the previous Spartan family.
  • At 8mm, it is the industry’s smallest form factor package for a 28nm FPGA. This means up to 70 percent lower static power.
  • RoHS Compliant
  • Faster embedded processing with the MicroBlaze soft processor.
