Intel® Arria® 10 FPGAs & SoCs

Highest Performance FPGA and SoC at 20 nm1

Intel® Arria® 10 FPGAs deliver more than a speed grade faster core performance and up to a 20% fMAX advantage compared to the competition, using publicly-available OpenCore designs.1 Intel® Arria® 10 FPGAs and SoCs are up to 40 percent lower power than previous generation FPGAs and SoCs and feature the industry’s only hard floating-point digital signal processing (DSP) blocks with speeds up to 1.5 tera floating-point operations per second (TFLOPS).1

The 20 nm ARM*-based Intel® Arria® 10 SoC delivers optimal performance, power efficiency, small form factor, and low cost for midrange applications. The Intel Arria 10 SoC, based on TSMC’s 20 nm process technology, combines a dual-core ARM Cortex*-A9 MPCore* Hard Processor System (HPS) with industry-leading programmable logic technology that includes hardened floating-point digital signal processing (DSP) blocks. The Intel Arria 10 SoC offers a processor with a rich feature set of embedded peripherals, hardened floating-point variable-precision DSP blocks, embedded high-speed transceivers, hard memory controllers, and protocol intellectual property (IP) controllers - all in a single highly integrated package.
