Stratix-10 series FPGAs 2.75M equivalent logic elements (LEs), up to 229 Mb of embedded memory, high-performance, variable-precision digital signal processing (DSP) blocks with up to 11,520 18x19 high-performance multipliers, and flexible I/Os for most popular interface standards. Families include SX, GX, TX, MX, with a wide variety of feature set and performance options to align best solutions to next generation needs. Stratix-10MX family feature integrated 3.25GB to 16GB of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM), providing up to 512GB/s throughput while significantly reducing overall solution size and providing added reliability through industry leading integration. Stratix-10SX devices contain an integrated 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 APU complex and complete software support and software (GPOS and RTOS) development acceleration tools.
Built on the award-winning Stratix architecture, Stratix-10 series devices include the embedded memory and LE resources needed for input and output pin processing functions, such as signal synchronization and timing analysis. The Intel Stratix device series integrates up to 60 58Gbps transceivers (or 120 NRZ transceivers) with up to an additional 24 28.3Gbps and 17.4Gbps transceivers, with the signal integrity required for serial protocols such as PCIe Gen3. (Please email or call for the latest peripheral device interconnect solutions including PCI Express* Gen4 x16, and Intel PSG solutions roadmap for next generation Gigabit Transceivers, High End FEC solutions, and massive TeraFLOPS DSP solutions). Stratix-10 devices also include 100 Gigabit Ethernet MAC and a variety of FEC solutions.
Intel Arria-10® FPGA series include unique innovations such as an embedded dual-core ARM* Cortex*-A9 MPCore* processor. This hard processor system (HPS) includes a rich set of hardened peripherals, and high-performance and secure subsystem. Arria-10 family provides up to 78 full-duplex transceivers with data rates up to 25.78 Gbps chip-to-chip, 12.5 Gbps backplane and up to 1,150K equivalent logic elements (LEs), hardened memory interfaces, and a power-optimized core architecture that comprises redesigned adaptive logic modules (ALMs), variable-precision DSP blocks, distributed memory blocks, and fractional clock synthesis phase-locked loops (PLLs).
Intel offers a variety of IP cores that can be utilized in tester equipment. Chip-to-chip interfaces and memory interfaces such as DDR3, DDR4 and RLDRAM III can be downloaded from Intel FPGA IP Portfolio website.
For applications requiring a lower price per pin, the Intel Cyclone FPGA series of high-density, low-cost devices are a precise fit. Cyclone devices can be used in conjunction with Intel IP cores, such as the Nios® II embedded processor, to implement control functions that significantly shorten design time. This embedded IP function can shorten development cycles, lower costs, and yield faster time to market. The integration of various peripherals into a single Intel Cyclone series device reduces the number of discrete components on boards, along with related design costs and time, leading to significant cost savings. With a highly efficient device architecture, Intel Cyclone series devices meet the performance and integration needs of ATE products.
