Stratix 10 GX FPGA Development Kit


Intel’s Stratix® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit delivers a complete design environment that includes all hardware and software you need to start taking advantage of the performance and capabilities available in Stratix 10 GX FPGAs for your design needs.



You can use this development kit to:

  • Develop and test PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0 designs using the PCI-SIG®-compliant development board.
  • Develop and test memory subsystems consisting of DDR4, DDR3, QDR IV, and RLDRAM III memories.
  • Develop modular and scalable designs by using the FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) connectors to interface to a FMC mezzanine card provided by Altera partners and supporting protocols, such as JESD204B,  Serial RapidIO®, 10 Gbps Ethernet (10GbE), SONET, Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI),OBSAI, and many others.
