The Dini Group selected the Stratix® III EP3SL340 FPGA from Altera Corporation (NASDAQ:ALTR) for their DN7020K10, which is the industry’s largest single-board FPGA-based prototyping engine. The DN7020K10 supports 20 EP3SL340 FPGAs in 1,760-pin packages providing 1,104 user I/Os per device and a capacity of more than 50 million equivalent ASIC gates. Customers designing custom ASICs, such as those used in wireless communications, networking and graphics-processing applications, can use this ultra-high-capacity prototyping board to verify their logic designs and run them at near real-time clock speeds.
Designers of large ASICs can now run their designs at speeds approaching final silicon. The DN7020K10 includes all the features required to make prototyping easy.
- Global clock networks that reach every FPGA
- Six DDR2 SODIMM memory sockets
- Wide range of daughtercards (ARM core tile, A/D-D/A, PCIe, etc.)
- USB and flash configuration
Altera’s Stratix III family of high-end FPGAs delivers the industry’s lowest power consumption, highest performance and highest density 65-nm device. The Stratix III EP3SL340 features 340K LEs, supports DDR3 memory with interface speeds in excess of 1067 Mbps, and features Altera’s innovative Programmable Power Technology. The device’s density combined with 17 Mbits of embedded memory and 575 18×18 multipliers give designers an unparalleled level of functionality.
