Xilinx Inc. announced that reduced power versions of its Spartan-3 FPGAs will be available in the fourth quarter of the year.

According to the company, the advent of low power Spartan-3 FPGAs will significantly expand the FPGA market to power and heat sensitive products such as consumer appliances and rack-mounted equipment.

Extending the scope of the low cost 90nm Spartan-3 family, samples of reduced power Spartan-3 devices will be available by the end of 2004.

"The debut of Spartan-3 FPGAs with up to 66 percent reduction in quiescent power consumption is another example of market-driven innovation from us [Xilinx]," said Clay Johnson, VP and GM of the General Products Division.
