Spartan Devices - Reliability information for Spartan devices

Description

Where can I find information on reliability and failures in time (FIT) for Spartan FPGAs?

Solution

The Xilinx Reliability group publishes a quarterly report to monitor reliability data for each device. This report is available at:

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/user_guides/ug116.pdf

The failure rate is typically defined in unit of FIT (Failures In Time). One FIT means one failure per one billion device hours.

NOTE: Reliability measurements are only performed on production material.
