Memec Insight, a division of leading global semiconductor distributor Memec, has announced that it has shipped more than 1,500 of its low cost Spartan-3 LC design boards.
In addition to Memecâ€™s LC development kit, the division is now shipping its Spartan-3 MB kit, a full-featured prototype platform. Both development kits leverage the low cost and platform features of Spartan-3 to provide complete, cost-effective solutions for developing designs and applications based on the Xilinx Spartan-3 FPGA family.
With Xilinx delivering the higher density 3S1500 devices, Memec Insightâ€™s Spartan-3 MB kit bundles a full-featured, expandable Spartan-3 based system board with a power supply, user guide and reference designs. Utilizing the 1.5 million-gate Xilinx Spartan-3 device in the 676-pin fine-grid array package, the MB system board includes on-board features that simplify system prototyping and proof of concept projects.
â€śAs an industry leader and expert on FPGA technology, Memec is providing the design solutions, educational resources and deep engineering expertise necessary to help customers realize their time-to-market requirements quickly.â€ť said Tim Barber, director of marketing for Memec Insight.
â€śMemec Insight has demonstrated inherent technical expertise and innovation surrounding the Spartan-3 FPGA family and is a valued Xilinx partner,â€ť said Richard Terrill, senior manager of Spartan solutions for Xilinx.
