Spartan-6 FPGA Evaluation and Development Kits

Supported FPGA/CPLDs: Spartan-6 FPGA

Xilinx and Avnet provide a comprehensive offering of Spartan®-6 FPGA evaluation and development kits that enable designers to achieve an optimum balance of cost, power and performance.

The SP601 Evaluation Kit is a low-cost, entry-level environment for evaluating the Spartan-6 FPGA family with system design capabilities that include DDR2 memory control, flash, Ethernet, general-purpose I/O, and UART to name a few. The SP605 Evaluation Kit is a highly scalable base platform for developing low-cost applications requiring connectivity with high-speed serial transceivers, DDR3 memory control, DVI, parallel linear flash, and Tri-mode Ethernet.

The Xilinx Spartan-6 LX16 Evaluation Kit, featuring Texas Instruments battery management devices and power regulation circuitry and the Cypress PSoC® 3 Programmable System on Chip with embedded 8051 for an ultra-low-power controller. Avnet also offers the full-featured Xilinx Spartan-6 LX150T Development Kit for designing and verifying applications based on the Spartan-6 LXT FPGA family.

The low-cost Spartan®-6 FPGA LX9 MicroBoard is the perfect solution for designers interested in exploring the MicroBlaze™ soft processor or Spartan-6 FPGAs in general. The kit comes with several pre-built MicroBlaze “systems” allowing users to start software development just like any standard off-the-shelf microprocessor. The included Software Development Kit (SDK) provides a familiar Eclipse-based environment for writing and debugging code.
