Stratix V FPGAs

Product Announcement from Altera Corporation

Stratix V FPGAs-Image

Altera's 28-nm Stratix® V FPGAs deliver the industry's highest bandwidth, highest level of system integration, and ultimate flexibility with reduced cost and the lowest total power for high-end applications.

Stratix V FPGA Advantages

  • Attain Breakthrough Bandwidth with Power-Efficient Transceivers
    • Integrated 28-Gbps and 12.5-Gbps transceivers, with up to 50 percent lower transceiver power compared to previous-generation devices
    • Up to 6 x72 DDR3 memory interfaces at 800 MHz
    • 1,755 GMACS of signal processing performance
    • PCI Express® Gen3, Gen2, Gen1 hard intellectual property (IP) support
    • Embedded HardCopy® Blocks and integrated hard IP in the core and transceivers, which harden critical datapath components to eliminate system bottlenecks
  • Achieve Higher Integration on a Single Chip and Reduce Your Costs
    • Double the density without a cost and power penalty, through Embedded HardCopy Blocks, which deliver up to 14.3M ASIC gates or up to 1.19M logic elements. The blocks harden standard or logic-intensive functions including interface protocols like PCI Express Gen3, Gen2, and Gen1, and application-specific functions like 40G/100G/400G.
    • Partial reconfiguration, which enables you to reduce the size of FPGAs, saving board space, cost, and power
    • Fractional phase-locked loops (fPLLs), which provide increased clocking flexibility and replace on-board voltage-controlled crystal oscillators (VCXOs)
    • Integrated electronic dispersion compensation (EDC) capability in transceivers, which eliminates the need for external PHY to interface to optical modules
  • Get Ultimate Flexibility for Your Designs
    • User-friendly fine-grain partial reconfiguration, which allows you to change core functionality on the fly
    • Dynamically reconfigurable transceivers, which let you easily support multiple protocols, data rates, and physical media attachment (PMA) settings
    • Configuration via PCI Express using the existing PCI Express link in your application, which allows for a less complex board design
  • Lower Your System Power
    • Stratix V FPGAs reduce total power by 30 percent compared to previous-generation devices through key technologies:
      • Programmable Power Technology which maximizes core performance while simultaneously reducing power
      • TSMC's 28-nm high-K metal gate high-performance process optimized for lower power
      • 0.85-V core voltage
      • Partial reconfiguration
      • Embedded HardCopy Blocks and integrated core and transceiver hard IP
