spartan vs virtex

Spartan and Virtex both FPGA families belonging to XILINX.
Spartan is a family of xilinx FPGA in which there is no built in power PC's although u can program a 32 bit RISC softcore processor called micro blaze which is present in both spartan-3 and spartan3E families.
Virtex has families like virtex 2 pro and Virtex4-FX families which have builtin powerPC's which is hard-core also microblaze can be programed in virtex FPGA's.

Apart from this the process technologies varies from spartan to virtex fpga's and also among the devices of the same family.


Xilinx offers device families for low-cost (Spartan), and high-end (Virtex) applications in addition to supporting devices such as PROMs.

The cases of interest are:

Powering up
Before and during configuration
Normal operation after configuration has been completed.
Losing Vcco
