the wild already

Look harder? Try CTRL-F ? "o Control structure for the digital portion of the transceiver uses an instantiated microBlaze processor running in a Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA o Component selection for the transceiver Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) &#2013266087; Selected SFP+ module used for the optical interface, and a Spartan 6 FPGA running CPRI IP to handle the framing, mapping, and interleaving functions " What happened to 4 & 5?

it seems that printed version of EE Times has already Virtex-6 Spartan-6 advertizments in it. can not verify as do not have yet a print copy the target url should be www.xilinx.com/6 so we should probably see there something pretty soon as Xilinx can not delay the RP announcement any more long when the print ads are alreayd running Antti

"Everything Changes February 2, 2009 Sign up and be the first to know more about Virtex&#2013266094;-6 and Spartan&#2013266094;-6 FPGA Families." Interesting, the Submit button appears broken, but if you edit "testlinx.com" to "Xilinx.com", the registration may have worked. Not quite ready to go live then... - Brian

its not broken, was working now. well will see, do they really say "the Spartan-6 with ARM core will be available on digikey on <insert date here>" or please have patience.. the ES samples of arm enabled S-6 silicon will be shipping to EA customers in year 201x ? but only a few days ;) to know this Antti

Looks like Xilinx marketing want to 'resync' as the Virtex 6 and Spartan 6 (and hey, it's a number higher than Altera so that's worth something in their world, right ;) Anyone seen package choices for Spartan 6 yet ? Are Xilinx going to push prices, or leave the sub $1 / Low power area to Actel ? -jg
