1. Intel® Stratix® 10 TX Device Overview

Intel® Stratix® 10 TX FPGAs feature power-efficient, dual-mode transceivers, capable of both 57.8 Gbps PAM4 (Pulse Amplitude Modulation) and 28.9 Gbps NRZ (Non Return to Zero) operation. Supported by hardened PCI Express Gen 3 and 10/25/100 Gbps Ethernet MAC IP blocks, these devices can deliver over 8 Tbps of aggregate bandwidth, meeting the demanding transceiver bandwidth and power budget specifications of next generation designs.

In addition to the 57.8 Gbps PAM4 / 28.9 Gbps NRZ dual-mode transceivers, Intel® Stratix® 10 TX devices feature several other breakthrough innovations. These include all new HyperFlex® core architecture, hardened floating point DSP blocks, hardened external memory controllers and advanced packaging technology based on Intel® 's Embedded Multi-die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB).

With an embedded quad-core 64-bit Arm* Cortex* -A53 hard processor system (HPS) available in select devices, Intel® Stratix® 10 TX FPGAs deliver power efficient, application-class processing, and allow designers to extend hardware virtualization into the FPGA fabric.

Intel® Stratix® 10 TX FPGAs integrate a monolithic 14 nm FPGA fabric die with multiple high-speed transceiver tiles, all inside a single flip-chip BGA package. This implementation, combined with the unmatched transceiver bandwidth and core fabric performance, demonstrates Intel® 's commitment to deliver high-performance programmable solutions to your most challenging system design problems.
