Xilinx Spartan-3E FPGA

Spartan-3E FPGA

Xilinx's Spartan-3E series FPGAs are designed for high-volume and cost-sensitive consumer electronics applications. This series includes five varieties with capacities ranging from 100,000 to 1.6 million system gates. This series of products is based on the earlier Spartan-3 series products, increasing the number of logic for each I/O port and significantly reducing the cost of each logic unit. New features improve system performance and reduce configuration costs. Spartan-3E FPGA combines advanced 90nm process technology with improved performance, making every dollar exchange for richer functions and wider bandwidth, establishing a new standard in the programmable logic industry.
