Spartan®-7 FPGAs are available in -2, -1, and -1L speed grades, with -2 having the highest performance. The Spartan-7 FPGAs predominantly operate at a 1.0V core voltage. The -1L devices are screened for lower maximum static power and can operate at lower core voltages for lower dynamic power than the -1 devices. The -1L devices operate only at VCCINT = VCCBRAM = 0.95V and have the same speed specifications as the -1 speed grade.

Spartan-7 FPGA DC and AC characteristics are specified in commercial (C), industrial (I), and expanded (Q) temperature ranges. Except the operating temperature range or unless otherwise noted, all the DC and AC electrical parameters are the same for a particular speed grade (that is, the timing characteristics of a -1Q expanded speed grade device are the same as for a -1C commercial speed grade device). However, only selected speed grades and/or devices are available in each temperature range. For example, the -1L speed grade is only available in the industrial (I) temperature range.

All supply voltage and junction temperature specifications are representative of worst-case conditions. The parameters included are common to popular designs and typical applications.
