100G Development Kit, Stratix® V GX Edition enables a thorough evaluation of 100G designs by allowing you to:

  • Support 10G/40G and 100G line interfaces through optical modules.
  • Support applications requiring external memory interfaces, through 6x32-bit DDR3 and 1x36- and 1x18-bit QDRII BL2 memory banks.
  • Use system-side interfaces via two pairs of FCI AirMax connectors
  • Complete line-side (optical modules) to system-side (AirMax connector) datapath analysis.
  • Evaluate transceiver performance up to 12.5 Gbps.
  • Verify physical medium attachment (PMA) compliance to 10G/40G/100G Ethernet, Interlaken, CEI-6G/11G, and other major standards.
  • Validate interoperability between optical modules, such as SFP, SFP+, QSFP, and CFP.
