Product Description

The Spartan®-3E Starter Board provides a powerful and highly advanced self-contained development platform for designs targeting the Spartan-3E FPGA from Xilinx®. It features a 500K gate Spartan-3E FPGA with a 32-bit RISC processor and DDR interfaces. 

The board also features a Xilinx Platform Flash, USB, and JTAG parallel programming interfaces with numerous FPGA configuration options via the onboard Intel® StrataFlash and STMicroelectronics® Serial Flash. The board 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 Starter board is also compatible with the MicroBlaze™ Embedded Development Kit (EDK) and PicoBlaze™ from Xilinx.
