Low Power Serial Transceivers

Intel® Arria® 10 FPGAs and SoCs include lowest power transceivers that deliver high bandwidth, throughput and low latency.

Intel® Arria® 10 devices deliver the industry's lowest power consumption per transceiver channel:

  • 12.5 Gbps transceivers at as low as 242 mW
  • 10 Gbps transceivers at as low as 168 mW
  • 6 Gbps transceivers at as low as 117 mW

Intel® Arria® 10 transceivers support various data rates according to application:

  • Chip-to-chip and chip-to-module applications—from 1 Gbps up to 25.8 Gbps
  • Long reach and backplane applications—from 1 Gbps up to 12.5 with advanced adaptive equalization
  • Critical power sensitive applications—from 1 Gbps up to 11.3 Gbps using lower power modes

The combination of 20 nm process technology and architectural advances provide the following benefits:

  • Significant reduction in die area and power consumption
  • Increase of up to two times in transceiver I/O density compared to previous generation devices while maintaining optimal signal integrity
  • Up to 72 total transceiver channels—you can configure up to 6 of these channels to run as fast as 25.8 Gbps
  • All channels feature continuous data rate support up to the maximum rated speed
