XA3S500E-4FT256C FPGAs Overview
The Xilinx Automotive (XA) Spartan-3 family 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
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
The XA Spartan-3 family 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, Spartan-3 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 Spartan-3 family 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
