Lifecycle of AMD Spartan 6 FPGA extended to 2030


AMD’s Spartan™ 6 devices, with high IO-to-logic ratios in small form-factor packaging, continue to be well suited for customers in industrial, medical, vision and automotive markets as well as other markets, like communications, where simple bridging is required.

Customers in these segments require extended product longevity, typically requiring product lifecycles of 15 years, with many products supported much longer.

With that in mind and building on the success of extensions to AMD 7 Series device longevity, AMD is excited to formally announce that support for Spartan 6 FPGAs is being extended through at least 2030. All speed and temperature grades are included.

AMD take their commitment to supporting long product lifecycles very seriously. As we emerge from the recent supply chain challenges across the industry, they have worked hard to normalize lead times to help customers feel confident in the supply chain today as well as making this formal commitment to give them the ultimate confidence in availability into the future.

What this update means for our Trenz Electronic products


Trenz Electronic will not discontinue any of its products as long as critical components are available. This means their modules with Spartan™ 6 devices, such as TE0600 or TE0630, also have a product life cycle until at least 2030.

If you want a smoother transition to a successor, you can opt for the recently released TE0763 series with Artix™ 7 device, which is a functional replacement for the TE0630 series.
