Spartan®-7 FPGA Family

Spartan-7 devices, Xilinx's addition to their cost-optimized portfolio, offer the best in class performance per watt, along with small form factor packaging to meet the most stringent requirements. These devices feature a MicroBlaze™ soft processor running over 200 DMIPs with 800 Mb/s DDR3 support built on 28 nm technology. Additionally, Spartan-7 devices offer an integrated ADC, dedicated security features, and Q-grade (-40°C to +125°C) on all commercial devices. These devices are ideally suited for industrial, consumer, and automotive applications including any-to-any connectivity, sensor fusion, and embedded vision.

The Arty S7-50 board provides users with a wide variety of I/O and expansion options. Use the dual row Arduino connectors to mount one of the hundreds of compatibly shields, or use the Pmod ports with Digilent’s pre-made Pmod IP blocks.
