Altera First in Industry to Achieve Production Rollout of All 28-nm FPGA Families
“Customers today are looking to get their solutions to volume production as quickly as possible to accelerate adoption and revenue,” said Patrick Dorsey, senior director of component product marketing at Altera. “Altera’s focus on enabling production support across all 28-nm families with tailored process technologies, architecture and transceiver technology enables our customers to move rapidly to production with optimized cost, performance and low power.”
Cyclone V FPGAs
Developed on TSMC’s 28-nm Low Power (28LP) process, the Cyclone V family provides customers the lowest power and lowest cost at optimal performance levels needed for today’s high-volume, cost-sensitive applications. The family also includes variants with an integrated dual-core ARM®-based hard processor system (HPS) that deliver 40 percent lower total power versus the previous generation. Other features of Cyclone V include:
- the industry’s absolute lowest-power serial transceivers, with 88-mW power consumption per channel;
- 800-Mbps DDR3 with integrated hard memory controllers;
- PCI Express® (PCIe®) Gen2 hard intellectual property (IP) blocks with multifunction support enabling over 4,000-MIPS processing performance for under 1.8 W.
