Spartan/Spartan 6 Family of Chips

Field-programmable gate arrays, or FPGAs, are integrated circuits designed for after-market configuration by a designer or customer. Based on a matrix of configurable logic blocks (CLBs) connected by programmable interconnects, FPGAs can be reprogrammed to highly specific applications or functionality requirements, making them a more customizable and adaptable alternative to Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs).

DEX is proud to test, source, and deliver components from the Spartan 6 family of FPGAs as part of our global supply network capabilities. Leveraging a global database of suppliers, DEX sources the FPGAs you need when you need it, often in as little as 8-12 weeks.*

*DEX can source, test, and deliver many electronic components in as little as 8-12 weeks of a Purchase Order.

Source Your Spartan 6 Semiconductors with DEX

The Spartan/Spartan 6 family of FPGAs are among the most cost-optimized in the industry for applications that demand the lowest possible cost. Available as LX or LXT models, Spartan-6 FPGAs boast expanded densities (from 3,840 to 147,443 logic cells, one of the highest I/O per logic cells) and half the power consumption of previous iterations (with core voltage options of 1.2V or 1.0V and zero power with hibernate power-down mode), as well as:

  • Increased system performance (up to 8 low power 3.2Gb/s serial transceivers and 800 Mb/s DDR3 with integrated memory controllers)
  • 4.8Mb memory
  • Faster, more comprehensive connectivity
  • Programmable system integration, including over 40 I/O standards for a simplified system design and PCI Express with an integrated endpoint block
  • Accelerated design productivity, including a fast design closure using integrated wizards and a no-cost front-to-back FPGA design solution for Linus and Windows

Don’t trust your Spartan 6 semiconductor needs to unreliable supply chains or unexpected obstacles with OEMs. For more than four decades, DEX has been delivering the semiconductors and electronic components businesses need to keep moving, including those that are hard to find or out of production, all backed by best-in-class testing and exceptional customer support. Our rigorous testing procedures and international database of manufacturers and suppliers ensure you receive exactly the part you ordered, verified for authenticity, performance, and functionality.
