6. External Memory Interfaces in Arria® 10 Devices

The efficient architecture of the Arria® 10 external memory interface allows you to fit wide external memory interfaces within the small modular I/O banks structure. This capability enables you to support a high level of system bandwidth.

Compared to previous generation Arria® devices, the new architecture and solution provide the following advantages:

  • Pre-closed timing in the controller and from the controller to the PHY.
  • Easier pin placement.

For maximum performance and flexibility, the architecture offers hard memory controller and hard PHY for key interfaces.
