Spartan-6 FPGA Electrical Characteristics
Spartan®-6 LX and LXT FPGAs are available in various speed grades, with -3 having the highest performance. The DC and
AC electrical parameters of the Automotive XA Spartan-6 FPGAs and Defense-grade Spartan-6Q FPGAs devices are
equivalent to the commercial specifications except where noted. The timing characteristics of the commercial (XC) -2 speed
grade industrial device are the same as for a -2 speed grade commercial device. The -2Q and -3Q speed grades are
exclusively for the expanded (Q) temperature range. The timing characteristics are equivalent to those shown for the -2 and
-3 speed grades for the Automotive and Defense-grade devices.
Spartan-6 FPGA DC and AC characteristics are specified for commercial (C), industrial (I), and expanded (Q) temperature
ranges. Only selected speed grades and/or devices might be available in the industrial or expanded temperature ranges for
Automotive and Defense-grade devices. References to device names refer to all available variations of that part number (for
example, LX75 could denote XC6SLX75, XA6SLX75, or XQ6SLX75). The Spartan-6 FPGA -3N speed grade designates
devices that do not support MCB functionality.
All supply voltage and junction temperature specifications are representative of worst-case conditions. The parameters
included are common to popular designs and typical applications.
