Xilinx Inc. has presented the Spartan-6Q and Virtex-6Q families, a new generation of FPGAs qualified for the aerospace and defense markets. The Spartan-6Q family delivers a secure FPGA solution for low-power applications while the Virtex-6Q family targets high-performance, computationally intensive designs
Spartan-6Q family Xilinxs Spartan-6Q family is meant for military communications customers who require a low power, low cost, secure communications platform, while offering missiles and munitions customers a small form factor in a low power secure platform for targeting and data processing in extended temperature ranges. Spartan-6Q FPGAs offer a low power, low cost Information Assurance (IA) and Anti Tamper (AT) platform providing increased secure SWaP-C, and high reliability.
These devices deliver: Third generation IA (Single Chip Crypto Type-1) Third generation AT capabilities (DoD 5000 series) I and Q fully tested temperature range operation Reduced power consumption for extended mission life Reduced form factor for lighter/smaller mobile devices Long term support with mask set control
The Spartan-6Q FPGAs are fabricated on a low-power 45nm, dual-oxide process technology with full support in the Xilinx ISE Design Suite.
Spartan-6Q family target applications: Military Communications (MILCOM) -- Type-1 Crypto hand held radios -- Multi-waveform capable radios Missiles & Munitions (M&M) -- Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) -- Smart Munitions

Virtex-6Q family Xilinxs Virtex-6Q family offers secure SWaP-C benefits while providing AT in a ruggedized solution for applications that need high levels of performance and logic density up to the full military temperature range.
Virtex-6Q devices deliver: High performance, DO-254 enabled solutions with high reliability and low power for avionics High performance DSP solutions with high reliability and low power for Electronic Warfare (EW) and Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) applications 3rd generation AT capabilities (DoD 5000 Series) I and M fully tested temperature range operation Ruggedized packaging Long term support with mask set control
Built using third-generation Xilinx ASMBL architecture, the Virtex-6 FPGA family delivers 50 percent lower power and 20 percent lower cost than the previous generation. The 40nm devices operate on a 1.0v core voltage with an available 0.9v low-power option and are supported by a new generation of development tools delivered by ISE Design Suite and a vast library of IP already available for the market leading 65nm Virtex 5 FPGA family to ensure productive development and design migration.

Availability: The Spartan-6Q Family and Virtex-6Q Family will be available in I-temperature (industrial-temp -40 to + 100°c) as well as Q and M-temperature devices (Q: -40-125C (Spartan-6Q only)), M:-55 TO + 125°C (Virtex-6Q only) in the second quarter 2011.
I am new entry for digital design,
I am developing one High speed DAQ which sampling rate to be 3Gsps, Occurred data to be store in the bulk memory, retrieval by data to be send to VME bus in slow rate for offline analysis.
How would i use Virtex-6Q for above application, Is it possible?. If possible, May you provide the reference design or guideline..
