1. Intel® Stratix® 10 MX (DRAM System-in-Package) Device Overview

Delivering over 10X higher memory bandwidth compared to discrete DRAM solutions, Intel® Stratix® 10 MX DRAM System-in-Package (SiP) devices meet the memory bandwidth requirements of your next-generation designs.

Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices integrate 3D stacked High-Bandwidth DRAM Memory (HBM2) alongside a high-performance monolithic 14 nm FPGA fabric die, and multiple high-speed transceiver tiles, all inside a single flip-chip FBGA package.

This new class of device offers the highest memory bandwidth available in an FPGA, eliminating the memory bandwidth bottlenecks in high-performance systems such as datacenter, broadcast, wireline networking and high-performance computing systems. Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices enable you to achieve the highest memory bandwidth and lowest system power, giving you the best bandwidth per watt metric.

Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices feature several groundbreaking innovations such as the new HyperFlex® core architecture, dual mode 57.8 Gbps PAM4 / 28.9 Gbps Non-Return to Zero (NRZ) transceivers, and advanced packaging technology based on Intel’s Embedded Multi-die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB). These devices demonstrate Intel's leadership in high-performance programmable devices and our commitment to deliver the most advanced solutions to your most challenging system problems.
