7. Core Clock Network in Intel Agilex® 5 FPGAs and SoCs

Intel Agilex® 5 FPGAs and SoCs use programmable clock tree synthesis for its core clocking function.

Programmable clock tree synthesis uses dedicated clock tree routing and switching circuits. These dedicated circuits enable the Intel® Quartus® Prime software to create the exact clock trees that your design requires.

Advantages of using programmable clock tree synthesis:

  • Minimizes clock tree insertion delay
  • Reduces dynamic power dissipation in the clock tree
  • Allows greater flexibility of clocking in the core
  • Maintains backwards compatibility with legacy global and regional clocking schemes

Features of the core clock network of Intel Agilex® 5 FPGAs and SoCs:

  • Supports the second generation Intel® Hyperflex™ core architecture
  • Supports the hard memory controllers14 for:
    • DDR4—up to 3,200 Mbps
    • DDR5—up to 4,000 Mbps
    • LPDDR4—up to 4,267 Mbps
    • LPDDR5—up to 4,267 Mbps
  • Supported by dedicated clock input pins and integer I/O PLLs
14 Each Intel Agilex® 5 FPGA series has different hard memory controller support. For more information, refer to the related information.
