Architectural Description of the Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA Family

The Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA Family is made of five main configurable elements:

  • Input/Output blocks (IOBs) offer the interface that forms between the internal logic and the package pins.
  • Configurable logic blocks (CLBs) offer those functional elements necessary for the construction of most logic.
  • Dedicated block memories (RAM), with each having 4096 bits.
  • The Clock DLLs, which ensures control of the clock domain and compensation for clock-distribution delay.
  • Multi-level versatile interconnect structure

Now, the CLBs make up the main logic structure having an easy access into all the routing and support structures. Furthermore, the location of the input/output blocks is seen around all the memory and logic elements for quick and easy routing of the signals both off and on the chip.

In addition, the values that are stored in the static or stationary memory cells play a vital role in controlling the configurable interconnect resources and logic elements. Furthermore, on power-up, these values also load in the memory cells. Also, they can reload, when it becomes necessary to alter the device’s function.

Now, let us discuss each element in detail.

Input/Output Block (IOBs)

The Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA Family IOB features outputs and inputs, which support different Input/Output signaling standards. Furthermore, these outputs and inputs of high-speed can support different bus interfaces and memory.

Furthermore, the functions of the three registers serve as latches that are level-sensitive or as D-type edge-triggered flip-flops. Also, each input output block features a clock signal, which these three registers share and does not depend on the Clock Enable signals for every register.

Asides from the CE and CLK control signals, all three registers usually share a Set and Reset (SR). Furthermore, for every register, you can configure the signal independently as an asynchronous Reset, a synchronous Set, an asynchronous Clear, or an asynchronous Preset.

One feature that doesn’t reflect in the diagram of the block, but the software controls it is known as polarity control. Also, the buffers of the output and input, as well as all the control signals of the input output blocks have polarity controls that are independent.

Optional pull-down and pull-up resistors as well as an optional circuit (weak-keeper) are usually attached to every user’s input/output pad. Before configuration, those outputs that will play no role in the configuration will have to be forced into a state of high impedance.

Furthermore, the weak-keeper circuits and pull-down resistors are inactive; however, optionally inputs may be pulled up. Pull-up resistors’ activation before configuration is usually controlled globally by the pins for the configuration mode.

Also, if you don’t activate these pull-up resistors, the pins will end up floating. Furthermore, external pull-down or pull-up resistors have to be given on those pins needed to stay at a logic level that is well-defined before configuration.

Furthermore, all the pads get some protection against any damage resulting from any over-voltage transients and electrostatic discharge.

Configurable Logic Block

The logic cell is regarded as the main building block of the Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA Configurable logic block. Furthermore, an LC is made up of a generator with 4-input functions, storage element, and carry logic.

Also, the function generator’s output in every logic cells helps in driving the flip-flop’s D input or the CLB output. Each of the configurable logic blocks of the Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA is made up of four LCs, which are organized in two slices that are similar.

Also, asides from the four main LCs, the CLB of the Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA Family is made up of logic, which combines the function generators in order to deliver functions of either six of five inputs.

Block RAM

The Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA Family integrates several RAM memories with large block. These serve as a complement to the distributed Look-Up Tables, which offer memory structures that are shallow and implemented in Configurable logic blocks.

The organizing of the Block RAM’s memory blocks usually come in columns. Most devices from this family are composed of two types of such a column. Furthermore, the block RAM having four columns can be seen in XC2S400E.

The columns extend the chip’s full height. In addition, each of the memory blocks are four configurable logic blocks (CLBs) high, so also, a device having 16 configurable logic blocks high will have 4 memory blocks for each column, that will be eight blocks in total

Each cell of the block RAM is 100% dual-ported synchronous 4096-bit RAM that has control signals that are independent for each port. Furthermore, you can configure both ports’ data widths independently, offering bus-width in-built conversion.

In addition, the block RAM of the Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA Family includes serious routing to offer an effective interface with CLBs as well as other block RAMs.

Programmable Routing

Programmable routing can be referred to as the longest possible delay path, which restricts any design’s speed. So also, the routing architecture of the Spartan-IIE FPGA, as well as its place-and-route software have been defined jointly in order to reduce delays of long path and deliver the best possible performance of the system.

Also, with joint optimization, the time for design compilation is also reduced because of the software-friendly nature of the architecture. Furthermore, the cycles for design are reduced as a result of shorter time for design iteration.

Clock Distribution

It is known that the Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA family offers low-skew, high-speed clock distribution via the primary resources for global routing.

There will be 4 global buffers. You will find two at the device’s top center, while two will be found at the bottom center. All these help in driving the four main global nets, which also helps in driving all possible clock pins.

You will get four clock pads. Each of these pads are adjacent to every global buffer. Furthermore, the global buffer’s input is chosen either from the purpose of routing signals or from the pads.

Boundary Scan

Operations for boundary-scan work independently of each IOB configuration. Furthermore, no package type affects them. Also, all the input output blocks, which includes those that are unbonded, are handled as 3-state independent bidirectional pins present in one scan chain.

Furthermore, the bidirectional test retention capability once configuration is done helps in facilitating the external interconnections’ testing.

Also, the public instructions of the boundary scan will be available even before configuration. However, this exempts USER2 and USER1. Once configuration is completed, the instructions stay available coupled with other instructions of the USERCODE which were installed when the configuration was in progress.

While the instructions PRELOAD/ SAMPLE and BYPASS are available when configuration is ongoing, one important recommendation is that the operations of the boundary-scan are not carried out when this transitional phase is ongoing. Asides from the test instructions, the circuitry of the boundary-scan is useful in configuring the FPGA. It also helps in reading back the data.

In order to facilitate the scan chains, three outputs are provided by the User Register. These outputs are Shift, Update, and Reset, which represents the states in the internal state boundary-scan machine.

Conclusion

By now, you should understand what the Xilinx Spartan-IIE 1.8V FPGA Family is and what they offer. This family delivers users lots of logic resources, high performance, as well as a rich set of features. All these come at a very low price. Also it has 100 devices and each of them come with its own features. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us here. We will be glad to help you out.
