Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGA XilinxProviding system designers with improved methodologies for creating FPGA-based system-on-chip solutions, the Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGA families from Xilinx can deliver twice the capacity at half the power consumption compared to previous families. With a logic density of up to 760 K and more than 38 Mbit of BlockRAM and 2,000 DSP slices, these new Xilinx devices set new benchmarks in on-chip performance.  In addition, the new families offer up to 64 GTH transceivers that run up to 11.2 Gbps, enabling support for OTU specifications for the optical transport market, PCI Express-compliant hard blocks supporting root port functionality, and dedicated DDR3 memory controllers. System designers can also take advantage of more than 100 IP cores and reference designs across Xilinx FPGA families and development platforms.
