Powering and configuring Spartan-3 Generation FPGAs in compliant PCI applications

The PCI Local Bus Specification, Revision 3.0 (the PCI specification) defines a number of power and reset requirements. These requirements, when considered in an FPGA implementation, create several challenges that must be addressed for long-term reliability and broad interoperability.

The information presented in this application note applies to compliant PCI applications using Spartan-3 Generation FPGAs. For embedded systems where compliance is not required, this information helps designers make appropriate design decisions to ensure their systems are operable and reliable. This information is also relevant to other Xilinx FPGA families, as well as other PCI-SIG technologies, such as the PCI-X and PCIe technologies.
