The Xilinx Virtex®-6 and Spartan®-6 FPGA families are the programmable silicon foundation for Targeted Design Platforms that enable system designers to increase productivity and minimize development costs in applications targeting wireless, wired, audio, video, automotive, security and many other markets. The mix of programmable logic and on-chip configurable hard IP built using the latest process technology enables Xilinx Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGAs families to deliver twice the capacity, reduce system costs by up to 50%, and lower power consumption by as much as 65% compared to previous families.

Xilinx Targeted Design Platforms deliver a comprehensive method for building world-class FPGA solutions that increases productivity and enables differentiation. Each Targeted Design Platform combines intellectual property, reference designs, design services, and boards that have been proven and tested to work together with Xilinx's innovative software design methodologies. Customers leverage the common and market specific components they need and combine them with their core competency to build truly differentiated systems that at the same time enable dramatic increases in productivity.
