Using Suspend Mode in Spartan-3 Generation FPGAs

Posted: 13 Sep 2008 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:Spartan-3 FPGAs? Suspend mode? FPGA power consumption?

While some applications require the lowest possible system cost or highest performance, still other applications require the lowest possible standby power. Spartan-3 Generation FPGAs offer low-power options that balance cost and performance tradeoffs.

The Spartan-3A, Spartan-3AN, and Spartan-3A DSP FPGA families offer an advanced static power management feature called Suspend mode, which reduces FPGA power consumption while retaining the FPGA�s configuration data and maintaining the application state. The device can quickly enter and exit Suspend mode as required in an application.
