The Spartan® 3E-1600 Development Board provides a powerful and highly advanced self-contained development platform for designs targeting the Spartan 3E FPGA from Xilinx. It features a 1600K gate Spartan-3E capable of implementing large complex digital systems including the 32-bit MicroBlaze™ RISC soft processor with DDR interfaces.
The board features JTAG programming via on-board USB2 port, external parallel or USB cables. The FPGA supports configuration via the on-board Xilinx® platform flash, Intel® StrataFlash™, ST Microelectonics Serial Flash and numerous additional options.
It is fully compatible with all versions of the Xilinx ISE® tools including the free WebPACK™. The board ships with a power supply and USB cable for programming so designs can be implemented immediately with no hidden costs. The Spartan 3E-1600 Development Board is also compatible with the Xilinx Embedded Development Kit (EDK) featuring the 32-bit MicroBlaze RISC processor. The PicoBlaze soft processor core is also supported via ISE.
The Spartan 3E-1600 is a legacy product and is no longer supported by Xilinx's newer tool sets. As a result we will no longer be producing the board, and once current stock is depleted there will be no more.
