Altera’s Generation 10 FPGAs and SoCs slash power requirements

Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs from Altera Corporation are designed to enable advanced, highest performance applications in the communications, military, broadcast and compute and storage markets, while slashing system power.

Leveraging Intel’s 14 nm Tri-Gate process and an enhanced high-performance architecture, Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs have an operating frequency over one gigahertz, 2X the core performance of current high-end 28 nm FPGAs. For high-performance systems that have the most strict power budgets, Stratix 10 devices allow customers to achieve up to a 70 percent reduction in power consumption at performance levels equivalent to the previous generation.

Features:
More than four million logic elements (LEs) on a single die
56-Gbps transceivers
More than 10-TeraFLOPs single-precision digital signal processing
A third-generation ultra-high-performance processor system
Multi-die 3D solutions capable of integrating SRAM, DRAM and ASICs

The company states that Arria 10 devices offer more features and capabilities than today’s current high-end FPGAs, at 15 percent higher performance. Reflecting the trend toward silicon convergence, Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs offer 1.15 million LEs, integrated hard intellectual property and a second-generation processor system that features a 1.5 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor.

Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs also provide 4X greater bandwidth compared to the current generation, including 28-Gbps transceivers, and 3X higher system performance, including 2666 Mbps DDR4 support and up to 15-Gbps Hybrid Memory Cube support.
