XC6SLX9-2TQG144C Introduction

High-performance FPGAs from the Spartan-6 LX and LXT families are available in a range of speed ratings, with -3 being the fastest. These FPGAs’ electrical properties vary based on the speed class and temperature range. The three most common temperature ranges are extended (E), industrial (I), and commercial (C) (Q). According to the speed grade they are built for, these FPGAs can be classified as advanced, Preliminary, or Production based on the switching characteristics defined for each speed grade.

Each categorization is based on a certain step in the characterization of silicon, with the Production stage acting as the analysis’s apex and offering the highest level of precision. The specifications’ qualities are intended to be illustrative of the worst-case circumstances that could occur. These values are also characteristic of widely used patterns and programs. The XC6SLX9-2TQG144C Spartan-6 Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) will be thoroughly introduced in this article, along with a breakdown of its technical specifications, an explanation of its functions, and examples of its applications.


  • Architecture: The 6-input Look-Up Table (LUT) design of the XC6SLX9-2TQG144C is based on a 45nm manufacturing technology. 9,152 logic cells that can be set up to carry out various tasks make up the device.
  • Memory: The XC6SLX9-2TQG144C comes with 576KB of block RAM that may be set up as dual-port, single-port, or FIFO. Moreover, 18 specialized 36 Kb blocks of RAM can be used as distributed RAM.
  • A flexible clocking design on the XC6SLX9-2TQG144C enables up to 8 global clock networks, each with up to 4 clock inputs. Moreover, it contains Phase-Locked Loops (PLLs) and Digital Clock Managers (DCMs) for creating high-frequency clocks and lowering jitter.
  • Connectivity: The XC6SLX9-2TQG144C supports various I/O standards, such as LVCMOS, LVTTL, PCI, and SSTL. Moreover, it features two-gigabit transceivers that can handle 2.5 Gbps of data rates.
  • The XC6SLX9-2TQG144C can be set up using either the SelectMAP or JTAG interfaces. It also supports the Xilinx iMPACT and Chipscope Pro tools for programming and debugging.
  • Power: The XC6SLX9-2TQG144C consumes a maximum of 1.1W, with an average power consumption of 600mW. Clock gating and dynamic power management are among the power-saving features it has.
  • Packaging: The 144-pin Thin Quad Flat Pack (TQFP) package of the XC6SLX9-2TQG144C makes it appropriate for use in tiny form-factor designs.

Spartan-6 FPGA Electrical Characteristics

There are many speed classes for FPGAs built using the Spartan®-6 LX and LXT architecture, with grade -3 being the fastest. Unless something else is said, both Spartan-6Q FPGAs are of Military grade, and the Automotive XA Spartan-6 FPGAs adhere to the same DC and AC electrical criteria as the industry standard. Commercial -2 speed grade industrial equipment has timing properties identical to those of a commercial device with the same speed grade. The -2Q and -3Q speed grades only apply to the Q range’s wider temperature range. Devices developed for automotive and defense usage have the same timing characteristics as those displayed for speed classes -2 and -3.

The commercial (C), industrial (I), and extended (Q) temperature ranges of the Spartan-6 FPGA are used to define the DC and AC properties of the device. With automotive and defense-grade equipment, it’s possible that just a select few speeds and/or devices will be usable in the industrial or higher temperature ranges. All variants are identified by their respective device names wherever a component number appears. Devices that don’t support MCB functionality for the Spartan-6 FPGA are identified by the speed grade -3N. The supply voltage requirements and the junction temperature are calculated using the worst-case scenario. In their respective categories, the parameters presented are typical of popular designs and applications.

Switching Characteristics

The -3, -3N, and -2 values used the v1.20 speed specification, while the -1L value used the v1.08 speed specification. All the numbers on this data sheet are based on these specifications. Switching characteristics are given for each speed grade and can be labeled as advanced, Preliminary, or Production, depending on how far along they are in development. The following definitions explain what each designation means:

● Advance

The only thing these standards are based on is the results of computer simulations, which are usually made public soon after the design specifications for a device have been finalized. Even though speed grades with this label are thought to be fairly consistent and conservative, it is still possible that some speeds won’t be reported.

● Preliminary

These specs are based on a thorough analysis of an engineering sample, often called an ES. With this classification, the devices and speed classes are meant to give a clearer picture of the performance that can be expected from making silicon. Compared to Advance data, the chance of not reporting enough delays goes down significantly.

● Production

Once a sufficient amount of production silicon of a single device family member has been characterized to enable full correlation between specifications and devices across several production lots, these specifications will be made public. Under-reporting of delays does not occur, and clients are provided with proper notification of any later adjustments. In most cases, the speed grades that travel the slowest become Produced before the speed grades that travel the fastest.

Every specification considers the most severe possible supply voltage and junction temperature conditions. As a result of the fact that different members of the family are manufactured at various points in time, the transition from one category to another is wholly determined by the current stage of the manufacturing process for each item. The -1L speed grade refers to the Spartan-6 devices with reduced power output. The MCB capability is not supported by the Spartan-6 devices, which are referred to by the speed grade -3N.


In conclusion, the Spartan-6 FPGA is an advanced and highly adaptable device that has become a top choice for engineers and designers in various industries.
