Are there any good data rate(~Mbps) RF modules available in market that can be interfaced with Digilent Atlys Spartan®-6 FPGA Development Kit ? Thanks in advance.

I would ask Digilent. Also what interfaces it has would help.

I'd check out Comblocks offerings. We got some of their stuff recently and so far I'm pleased.

Any module working on 2.4GHz ISM, will easily do 1Mbps and for sure 2Mbps.

You have Nordic, TI and some others.

Untrue. Base frequency does not determine bandwidth. –  Chris Stratton Aug 20 '13 at 13:20
    
Can you do 1Mbps on 868MHz? If so, please let me know what modules are available for that. thanks. –  Sérgio Sena Aug 21 '13 at 14:17
    
Of course you can - it's a question of regulatory approval not physical or technical capability. You could, with moderate difficulty, do 1Mbps way down on the HF bands technically, it just isn't allowed. It goes the other way too - plenty of 2.4 GHz ISM devices do not support 1 Mbps data rates, because they weren't designed for applications which need that, and because the signal to noise ratio (transmit power, receive quality, antenna gain) increases with the supported bandwidth, so low data rate devices are more efficient solutions when only a low data rate is needed. –  Chris Stratton Aug 21 '13 at 15:55
