The EP3SL340 FPGA, from Altera Corporation (NASDAQ:ALTR), is the latest member of the 65nm Stratix® III family. The EP3SL340 features an industry-leading 340K logic elements (LEs), supports DDR3 memory with interface speeds in excess of 1067 Mbps, and offers the lowest power consumption of any high-density, high-performance programmable logic device (PLD). Stratix III EP3SL340 FPGAs are shipping now to customers in volume.
The Stratix III EP3SL340 FPGA provides a 25% performance advantage over competing high-density FPGAs and leverages Altera’s Programmable Power Technology, delivering 29 % lower power consumption. The devices also provide greater than 1067-Mbps DDR3 memory interface speeds, a 33% advantage in memory performance over competing FPGA solutions. The combination of 340K LEs, 17 Mbits of embedded memory and 575 18 x 18 multipliers gives designers an unparalleled level of functionality.
