FPGA Configuration Memory
The Atmel AT18F Low Cost configuration Family can be used to configure low Cost SRAM FPGAs as well as higher density high performance FPGAs from Xilinx. The AT18F Family is offered in Densities of 1 Mb up to 8 Mb and can be used to configure both Spartan and Virtex family of FPGAs. This family has true In-System Programmable (ISP) capability and is compliant with IEEE 1532 programming Standard. Atmel's AT18F family is supported with easy to use Configuration programming Software (CPS) and is recommended for new FPGA designs. Atmel's small form factor packages are ROHS compliant and reduce the amount of board Space and at the same time help accelerate time to market by providing a system level drop in solution for popular FPGA based systems.
The Atmel popular AT17LV FPGA Configurator EEPROM Memories can be used with Atmel's FPSLIC™ devices and any SRAM-based FPGA from any supplier, including Atmel's own AT6000 and AT40KxxAL FPGA family, as well as products from Xilinx, Altera and Lattice Semiconductor. They come in densities from 65K to 32 Mb and are reprogrammable at 5V or 3.3V, using an industry-standard 2-wire serial bus. New small footprint 8-pin packages have recently been added to this family of devices.
