The Xilinx XA3S500-4FT256Q of Field-Programmable Gate Arrays meets the needs of high-volume, cost-sensitive automotive electronic applications. The five-member family offers densities ranging from 50,000 to 1.5 million system gates.
XA devices are available in both extended-temperature Q-grade (–40°C to +125°C TJ) and I-grade (–40°C to +100°C TJ) and are qualified to the industry-recognized AEC-Q100 standard. The XA3S500-4FT256Q builds on the success of the earlier XA Spartan-IIE family by increasing the amount of logic resources, the capacity of internal RAM, the total number of I/Os, and the overall level of performance as well as by improving clock management functions. These Spartan-3 enhancements, combined with advanced process technology, deliver more functionality and bandwidth per dollar than was previously possible, setting new standards in the programmable logic industry.
Because of their exceptionally low cost, XA3S500-4FT256Q FPGAs are ideally suited to a wide range of advanced automotive electronics modules and systems ranging from the latest driver assistance and infotainment systems to instrument clusters and gateways. The XA3S500-4FT256Q is a flexible alternative to ASICs, ASSPs, and microcontrollers. FPGAs avoid the high initial NREs, the lengthy development cycles, and problems with obsolescence. Also, FPGA programmability permits design upgrades in the field with no hardware replacement necessary.
