So what's a TQGA144 (Xilinx Spartan 7)?

Hi guys,

I'm looking at the Spartan 7 series ( https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/selection-guides/cost-optimized-product-selection-guide.pdf#S7 ), and it mentions the package option TQGA144.

I can't for the life of me find any mention of a TQGA144 package anywhere on the internets. Now their TQG144 package is a TQFP144 ( http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/package_specs/tq144.pdf ). Is it reasonable to assume that the package will be the same? Also, does anyone have any data on availability?

Thanks,

David

There will be no Spartan 7devices in a QFP. 


The word from the Xilinx sales guys is prototype silicon next year and general availability in 2018.    They are essentially low end Artix devices without transceivers.       


The pricing is still TBD (which is very dumb...)

TQGA144 should be TQFP144

TQ = TQFP

G = Lead free

A144 = 144pin (don't really know what dose 'A' stand for, I guess maybe it means 0.5mm pitch)

If the Artix-7 launch is any guide, we're still years out from general availability. No one should be looking at Spartan-7 now unless they've already got contacts within Xilinx.

That's not what their documentation shows... but with prerelease stuff, who knows. Things can change week to week!

I'll be more interested in pricing once they might actually start shipping these things!

The product brief says what the A means:

--- Quote from: Xilinx ---Notes:
1.
Packages with the same last letter and number sequence, e.g., A484, are footprint compatible with all other devices with the same sequence. The footprint compatible devices within this family are outlined.

Thanks guys, explanations appreciated.

Damn, too long. I've been aching for something compatible with their new tools and in a normal package.
