Configuration PROM - Can I order industrial grade PROMs that cover temperature ranges up to 100 C even though only commercial grade is shown on the data sheet?


Keywords: commercial, industrial, PROM, 18v, platform, flash

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
The 18V00 and platform flash PROM data sheets indicate that only commercial grade parts are available. Can I order industrial grade PROM parts?


The current commercial temperature range for PROMs is 0 C to +70 C. Xilinx is extending the commercial range to cover -40 C to +85 C, which is the industrial temperature range. This change is described in PDN2003-05: "Discontinue XC18V256 and I-Grade Ordering Codes for the XC18V00 Product Family." To access this document, go to the following location and select "Configuration PROMs" under Configuration Solutions:

To ensure that I-grade parts are ordered, please order the PROM parts with SCD 0901.

If a higher temperature cover range is needed (-55C ~ +125C), then use the Hi-REL 18V00 PROM parts. For more information, refer to the "QPro XQ/XQR18V04 QML Programmable Configuration PROMs" data sheet at:
