Equivalent Kintex 7 FPGA for Spartan 6

Jump to solution

Hi,

We have used Spartan 6 FPGA XC6SLX100T-2FGG484I in our of our products, and now we have planned to replace the existing Spartan 6 with a Kintex 7 FPGA. When doing some comparison, XC7K160T looks like a close match, but the Spartan 6 series mentions 4 Memory Controller Blocks, whereas I don't see anything like that in Kintex 7 Series. Does Kintex 7 series contains Memory controller blocks?.

 

Thanks,

Manoj

Hi

 

Yes spartan6 has hard memory controller block while Kintex7 have no hard blocks.

 

For 7 series you need to use MIG soft cores which are free.

 

Refer below link for more details.
