Broad offering with High Performance Advantages

In addition to offering design engineers 2x more 28nm device options, Altera’s Cyclone V FPGA’s integrate advanced hard memory controllers enabling a 2x bandwidth advantage compared to the competition’s soft memory controller.

2x More Bandwidth

2X More Bandwidth to External Memories - Throughput to external memory is typically a system bottleneck. Altera’s solution for external memory interface provides 2.0x more bandwidth AND lower power. It uses a lower I/O toggle rate, less logic, and a much more efficient memory controller. The solution is easy to design for since the memory controller and multi-port interface is a Hard IP block, pre-built and pre-verified.
