 Starter Kits enable fast programmable logic development
DT Electronics is now stocking Xilinx Spartan-3E Starter Kits. Each kit is a complete development board including power supply, evaluation software, resource CD containing comprehensive technical data, and a USB cable. The kits support the Xilinx Spartan-3E and CoolRunner-II families of devices. They have an on-board 50MHz crystal clock oscillator, 128Mb parallel flash, 16Mb SPI flash and 64MB of DDR SRAM.
Each board features a comprehensive range of connectors and interfaces for maximum application flexibility. These include Ethernet 10/100 PHY, JTAG USB download, two RS-232 9-pin series ports, a PS/2 style mouse/keyboard port, a rotary encoder with push button, four slide switches, eight individual LED outputs, four momentary-contact push buttons, a 100-pin expansion connection port and three 6-pin expansion connectors.

Spartan-3E FPGAs fulfil industry demands for high-volume, gate-optimised programmable logic and offer the lowest cost-per-logic and lowest configuration device cost in the market. Manufactured using an advanced 90nm process, they offer up to 1.6 million system gates and 376 I/Os. PCI33/66, PCI-X, mini-LVDS and RSDS are amongst the I/O standards supported and hundreds of pre-optimised IP cores and reference designs are available. The devices enable efficient integration of many chips into a single FPGA.

Spartan-3E Starter Kits are available from stock at $149 each (ex-VAT).
