The article reports on the decision of field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) development and manufacturing company Xilinx Inc. to issue a product recall of Spartan-3, Spartan-3E and Spartan-3L FPGA made between early September 2005 and late April 2006. The move was prompted due a defect on the products' wire-bonded plastic bond grid array packages that presents a potential quality and reliability risk.
