Spansion Serial NOR and NAND Qualified as Xilinx Supported Flash for Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC

Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC Designs Can Easily Integrate Spansion Flash for Reliability and Performance

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 9, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — Spansion Inc. (NYSE: CODE), a global leader in Flash memory-based embedded systems solutions, today announced that the Spansion FL-S family of Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) Flash and the Spansion ML-G1 Series SLC NAND have been qualified as Xilinx Supported Flash Devices for the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC family for configuration and data storage.  The Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC is the first All Programmable System-on-Chip and combines a high performance dual core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processing system with the latest FPGA fabric technology from Xilinx. While using the Zynq-7000 SoC, designers can extend the capabilities on the ARM processors by building peripherals and accelerators in the FPGA fabric, offering levels of performance, power and flexibility beyond traditional SoC devices.

"Xilinx Zynq-7000 is the award-winning all programmable System-on-Chip broadly used in wired and wireless communication, automotive, factory automation, medical imaging and broadcast applications," said Naseem Aslam, ecosystem marketing manager, Spansion.  "Earning this qualification means embedded customers can easily incorporate Spansion Flash memory products within their Zynq-7000 SoC designs to bring smarter systems to market faster while leveraging Spansion's industry leading quality, reliability and performance."

Xilinx Supported Flash Devices are verified to work with Xilinx programming tools, the Zynq-7000 device BootROM, and U-Boot.  In addition, Xilinx Supported Flash Devices are backed by Xilinx Technical Support.

"Spansion Flash is an important component of our comprehensive Zynq-7000 SoC solution," said Stephane Monboisset, senior product marketing manager for Zynq at Xilinx.  "Embedded system designers can leverage the high speed throughput of Spansion FL-S Series NOR or depend on the solid reliability of Spansion SLC NAND for their Zynq-7000 SoC-based systems."

Spansion products qualified as Xilinx Supported Flash Devices are the 128Mb Serial NOR Flash and the 4Mb NAND Flash.  In addition, other densities of the same Spansion Serial NOR Flash family, the 256Mb, 512Mb and 1Gb Serial NOR and 1Gb, as well as the 2Gb and 8Gb SLC NAND devices are in testing and targeted for qualification in the next software release.
