Xilinx Artix®-7 FPGAs

Xilinx Artix®-7 FPGAs deliver a cost-optimized performance in categories including logic, signal processing, embedded memory, LVDS I/O, memory interfaces, and transceivers. The Artix-7 FPGAs are ideal for cost-sensitive applications that need high-end features.

Optimized for Xilinx FPGAs, the MicroBlaze CPU is a highly configurable 32-bit RISC processor offering fast deployment and presets for Microcontroller, Real-Time Processor, and Application Processor use cases. Artix-7 FPGAs offer other system integration capabilities, such as integrated, advanced analog mixed-signal (AMS) technology. Analog is the next level of integration that is efficiently accomplished with the independent dual 12-bit, 1MSPS, 17-channel analog-to-digital converters in Artix-7 FPGAs.

The Artix-7 FPGAs are part of the All Programmable Cost-Optimized Portfolio that includes Spartan-6 and Spartan-7 FPGAs, which offer I/O optimization, and Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs, which provides system integration and optimization for applications. The Artix-7 FPGAs feature a small, compact footprint and packaging.
