Multiple Domain-Optimized Platforms Spartan-3 Generation

The Spartan®-3 Generation of FPGAs offers a choice of five platforms, each delivering a unique cost-optimized balance of programmable logic, connectivity, and dedicated hard IP for your low-cost applications.

  • Spartan-3A DSP– DSP Optimized
    • For applications where integrated DSP MACs and expanded memory are required
    • Ideal for designs requiring low cost FPGAs for signal processing applications such as military radio, surveillance cameras, medical imaging, etc.
  • Spartan-3AN – Non-volatile
    • For applications where non-volatile, system integration, security, large user flash are required
    • Ideal for space-critical or secure applications as well as low cost embedded controllers
  • Spartan-3A  –  I/O Optimized
    • For applications where I/O count and capabilities matter more than logic density
    • Ideal for bridging, differential signaling and memory interfacing applications, requiring wide or multiple interfaces and modest processing
  • Spartan-3E – Logic Optimized
    • For applications where logic densities matter more than I/O count
    • Ideal for logic integration, DSP co-processing and embedded control, requiring significant processing and narrow or few interfaces
  • Spartan-3 – For Highest Density and Pin-Count Applications 
    • For applications where both high logic density and high I/O count are important
    • Ideal for highly-integrated data-processing applications
