Low cost I/O and DSP-optimized Devices for Automotive Electronics
Xilinx, Inc. introduced the XA Spartan-3A and Spartan-3A DSP FPGAs for use in automotive applications. XA Spartan-3A devices are I/O-optimized for low cost per I/O in the PLD industry with up to 1.4 million system gates and 502 I/Os. They are compliant with 26 popular single-ended and differential signaling standards, and support market-specific networking standards, such as CAN, MOST and FlexRay. These devices use source-synchronous interfacing technology cost-optimized to ensure optimal design margins. XA Spartan-3A DSP devices deliver over 30 GMACS and 2200 Gbps memory bandwidth, closing the bandwidth gap automotive designers face with current serial DSP designs. The cost-optimized XtremeDSP DSP48A slice enables designers to implement many independent arithmetic functions. Multiple slices can be connected together without the use of general logic fabric, reducing power consumption while delivering high performance and efficient silicon utilization.
