Altera Cyclone V GT FPGA Is Industry's First Low-Power FPGA To Achieve Compliance For PCIe Gen2 At 5 Gbps

Stocks in this article: ALTR

Cyclone V FPGAs and Cyclone V SoCs have an innovative multifunction support feature that allows up to eight PCIe end points to be combined into a single end point while still being supported by standard device drivers. This convenient feature benefits applications such as I/O expansion by reducing software driver development time. The Cyclone V FPGA and Cyclone V SoC are also equipped with Altera's innovative Configuration via Protocol using PCIe, which allows the hard PCIe core in the devices to operate without the FPGA fabric being loaded. This ensures the PCIe end point is ready for enumeration under the PCIe protocol's required 100ms specification regardless of the configuration method being used.

Altera offers a full spectrum of PCI-SIG-compliant solutions across its entire product portfolio that are optimized to meet key application requirements. These solutions include configurable PCIe intellectual property (IP) cores and development boards for endpoint, bridge, switch and root port functionalities. Altera's latest Cyclone V GT FPGA Development Kit enables simple and fast PCIe Gen2 protocol implementation while reducing design risk and shortening development times. The development kit provides a quick and simple approach to develop low-cost and low-power FPGA system-level designs to achieve rapid results.

Availability

Cyclone V GT FPGAs are currently in production. Altera offers the broadest portfolio of 28 nm low-power, low-cost FPGAs in the industry, with densities ranging from 25K logic elements (LEs) to 300K LEs and the smallest form factor packaging options that are tailored to customer's needs.
