Xilinx Announces the Spartan-7 FPGA Family

Flexible, I/O-Intensive Devices for Cost-Sensitive Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 19, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced the Spartan®-7 FPGA family that will deliver I/O intensive devices for cost-sensitive applications. The new family will address connectivity requirements across a breadth of markets including automotive, consumer, industrial IoT, data center, wired and wireless communications, and portable medical solutions. All new Spartan-7 FPGAs will be supported on the no-cost Vivado® Design Suite WebPACK Edition, as well as the Vivado Design and System Editions, to enable fastest time to integration and implementation. 

The Spartan-7 FPGA family will deliver high I/O ratios in small form factor packages, critical for cost-sensitive markets. The family will provide up to 4X price-performance-per-watt improvement over previous generations for flexible connectivity, interface bridging, and companion chip functionality.

"Xilinx has a long history of providing cost optimized solutions with our Spartan class of products," says Kirk Saban, Senior Director of FPGA & SoC Product Management and Marketing at Xilinx. "The introduction of the Spartan-7 FPGA family re-affirms our continued commitment to that heritage and extends our multi-generational leadership in I/O density, small form factor packaging, and power efficiency."

The new family will be co-optimized with the industry-leading Vivado Design Suite to deliver an IP-centric and system-centric development environment to address short development cycle requirements and aggressive time-to-market pressures common in cost-conscious markets. The Spartan-7 FPGA family will extend the existing Xilinx 7 Series portfolio, implemented in TSMC's 28nm HPL process.
