Product Overview

The Xilinx Spartan®-6 FPGA family offers the industry’s most advanced capabilities for system integration at the lowest possible total cost for high-volume applications. It is constructed using 45nm technology and is an excellent choice for advanced bridging applications in consumer and industrial automation and vehicle infotainment. The Spartan®-6 FPGA family consists of two subfamilies tuned for specific domains: LX (logic optimized) and LXT (high-speed serial connectivity).

The XC6SLX16-2CSG324C is designed to perform optimally in applications with the lowest possible cost. They offer support for up to 4.8Mb memory,  147K logic cell density, DSP48A1 slices, and high-performance integrated IP with support for industry standards. The Spartan®-6 LXT family of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) is designed to offer the lowest risk and cost option in the industry for serial communication. LXT devices are extensions of LX devices and can add up to eight more 3.

 Benefits of the Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA

Importantly, the field-programmable gate arrays made by Xilinx called Spartan 6 offer leading connectivity characteristics such as a wide variety of supported I/O protocols, a MicroBlazeTM soft processor, compact packaging, and high logic-to-pin ratios. Additionally, this product is ideal for various applications for advanced bridging, such as those found in consumer electronics, industrial automation, and the infotainment systems of automobiles.

Applications of the Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA

In addition to its use in automotive communication and networking, Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGAs can be seen in high-definition graphics and video.

Industrial Networks

Today’s factories are highly automated, highly efficient, and highly configurable. As a result, this essential piece of technology that can be found at the core of these modern factories is referred to as Industrial Ethernet. In addition, this enables positive communication between the networked devices within the system.

In addition, the high-performance logic of the Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGAs makes it possible for designers to implement low-latency Ethernet switches. This guarantees deterministic communication even as the number of nodes in the network increases.

The programmable logic allows designers to implement interfaces, safety, and motor control for existing communication protocols on a single chip, resulting in the smallest possible hardware footprint. This is made possible by the fact that the form factor can be reduced. As a result, outlined below are some of its advantages when applied to industrial networks:

  • Thanks to programmable logic, running different protocols on a single piece of hardware is possible.
  • It combines high-speed motor control and data transmission on a single integrated circuit.
  • High-performance logic that enables low-latency Ethernet switches.
  • Effective and cheap motor control algorithms can be used to lessen the financial burden of motor and noise filters.
  • Eliminating excess heat from the system.
  • Power consumption is decreased thanks to tighter regulation.

Graphics And Video Of High Resolution

For modern heads-up displays, camera views for driver assistance, and TFT/LCD messaging centers, Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGAs provide the scalability and flexibility to accommodate video and high-resolution graphics systems of varying requirements.

Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGAs are particularly well-suited for the high-resolution graphic and video systems required by modern screens, such as:

  • Features such as a system controller, integrated CPU, video bridging, and others are essential to the properly functioning of any electronic gadget.
  • Hardware for the screen and the video feed is booted separately from the application processor, allowing for a lightning-quick start-up.
  • Any scalable design that allows for managing multiple display kinds and sizes without changing the underlying silicon is also of interest.
  • NRE expenses are less than those associated with semi-custom ASIC/ASSP designs.
  • In addition, whole hardware design platforms and reference designs can be used to cut down on the product’s time to market.

Vehicle connectivity and networking

Xilinx automotive platforms include extensive support for numerous in-vehicle networking standards, including API, CAN, and EAVB, which is crucial since it eliminates the need for intricate, expensive wiring.

In addition, FPGAs can function autonomously like a DSP device, microcontroller, or complete system-on-chip. Furthermore, an application-specific and cost-effective solution is achieved by integrating connections for car networks with video/audio graphics subsystems or processor acceleration on a single Xilinx platform.

  • The capacity to scale up or down to accommodate varying numbers of feature classes across multiple vehicle lines
  • Special intellectual property exists that is also used to perform automotive-specific tasks.
  • In a similar vein, adaptability aids in the upgrade of functionality and features as new networking standards arise.
  • Interface for many processors and reference design

Electrical Characteristics of the Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGAs

Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGAs are available in a variety of clock rates. The -3 grade is the fastest one we provide. Spartan-6Q (Defense-grade) and XA (Automotive) Spartan-6 FPGAs have AC and DC electrical parameters that are generally on par with their respective standards.

In addition, the timing characteristics of -2 speed-grade industrial devices are comparable to those of -2 speed-grade commercial devices.

Speed ratings of -3Q and -2Q are applicable across a wider temperature spectrum. In addition, the timing characteristics shown for defense-grade and automotive devices with speed ratings of -3 and -2 are equivalent.

Additionally, Spartan-6 FPGA AC and DC characteristics for extended (Q), industrial (I), and commercial (C) temperature ranges are provided. In addition, only a subset of defense-grade and automotive-grade speeds may be accessible for the broader or industrial temperature ranges.

The variations for a given part number are also referenced in the devices’ names. Consider LX75 as an illustration. This might be XQ6SLX75, XA6SLX75, or XC6SLX75 as well. Devices in the Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA family with a speed grade of -3N do not support the MCB’s features.

Also, the junction temperature and supply voltage listed in all the details are maximums that could be reached under the worst circumstances. In addition, the parameters are a wonderful addition to often-used applications and designs.
