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
