Xilinx Inc. has unleashed the Spartan-7 FPGA family that the company said will deliver I/O intensive devices for cost-sensitive applications. The devices target connectivity requirements across markets such as automotive, consumer, industrial IoT, data centre, wired and wireless communications, and portable medical solutions.

All 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, noted the company.

The Spartan-7 FPGA family promises to deliver high I/O ratios in small form factor packages. 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 indicated.

The family will be co-optimised with the 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.
