Xilinx Spartan-3 generation FPGAs were conceived to deliver the lowest total cost for high volume applications. Those companies providing product in the high-volume application market space know that to thrive, they must have the ability to deliver feature-rich, high performance, and low power products while remaining extremely costcompetitive. As a supplier of over 50 million, 90 nm low-cost FPGAs to this market, Xilinx provides the industry’s most widely adopted low-cost FPGAs. We understand that in addition to material costs, companies must also reduce engineering and manufacturing costs. Furthermore, time-to-market is extremely critical as any delay can seriously impact a product’s success in the marketplace.

This white paper highlights the elements that enable Spartan-3 FPGAs to slash total cost by up to 50% compared to competing FPGAs.
