Low Power and Small Form Factor Portfolio for Automotive Applications

Xilinx® XA Artix®-7 (Automotive) FPGAs are optimized for cost and power with small form-factor packaging for high-volume automotive applications. Designers benefit from 65% lower static and 50% lower power than 45nm generation devices.

The Artix 7 FPGA is used as a co-processor to offload work done in microcontrollers, digital signal processing, or other host processors. It provides flexible interfacing and is optimized to compliment host processors. Available IP and software enables rapid extension of system interfaces, peripherals, or processing with minimal development effort.
