Benefits

Tailored for High-Volume, Cost-Sensitive Applications

With Cyclone® V FPGAs, you can get the power, cost, and performance levels you need for high-volume applications including protocol bridging, motor control drives, broadcast video converter and capture cards, and handheld devices. Learn more about the advantages of Cyclone® V FPGAs in a variety of market segments.

SoC FPGAs – Your Customizable ARM Processor-Based SoC

SoC FPGAs let you reduce system power, system cost, and board space by integrating a HPS – consisting of processors, peripherals, and memory controller – with the FPGA fabric using a high-bandwidth interconnect backbone. The combination of the HPS with Intel's 28 nm low-power FPGA fabric provide the performance and ecosystem of an applications-class ARM processor with the flexibility, low cost, and low power consumption of the Cyclone® V FPGAs.

Reducing Total System Cost Through Integration

Because Cyclone® V FPGAs integrate an abundance of hard intellectual property (IP) blocks, you can differentiate and do more with less overall system cost, power, and design time. Key hard IP blocks include the following:

Industry-Leading Low Power and Low System Cost

  • Up to 40 percent lower total power compared with Cyclone IV GX FPGAs
  • Lowest power serial transceivers with 88 mW maximum power consumption per channel at 5 Gbps
  • Over 4,000 MIPS (Dhrystones 2.1 benchmark) processing performance for under 1.8 W (for SoC FPGA)
  • Lower power due to increased use of hard IP blocks

Also lowering cost – the FPGAs require only two power regulator voltages and come in wire-bond packages with small form factor options.

Development Kits and Boards


Intel provides several development kits that feature Cyclone® FPGAs and SoCs. These kits provide a complete design environment that includes all the hardware and software that you need to develop full FPGA designs and test them within a system environment.

Applications

Cyclone® V FPGAs provide the industry’s lowest system cost, lowest power FPGA solution as well as small form-factor package options (as small as 11x11 mm2). These advantages, along with its performance and logic utilization, result in devices optimized for differentiating your high-volume applications. The abundance of hard intellectual property (IP) blocks in the core FPGA fabric, such as variable precision digital signal processing (DSP) blocks, multiport memory controllers, and PCI Express* Gen2 hardened IP with multifunction enable you to do more with less overall system cost and design time. As ready-to-use functions, these hard IP blocks will ease your development process and consume less power, and in the case of hardened memory controllers, less board space vs. soft logic. They’ll also free up more logic resources that you can devote to unique features that will differentiate your products.
