FPGAs break bandwidth barrier, lowering system power, cost
ALTERA Next-generation 28nm Stratix V FPGA family provides up to 1.6 Tbps of serial switching capability, while leveraging several technologies to reduce the cost and power of high-bandwidth apps. Manufactured on TSMC’s 28-nm High-Performance (HP) process, device provides up to 1.1 million logic elements (LEs), 53-Mbits embedded memory, 3,680 18×18 multipliers and integrated transceivers operating up to an industry-leading 28Gbps. Devices incorporate high level of application-targeted hard intellectual property (IP) for increased system integration and performance without the cost and power penalty. Product family includes four variants that address a broad range of applications in the wireless/wireline communications, military, broadcast, computer and storage, test and medical markets.
