Xilinx’s 7 Series GTH transceiver has successfully completed testing for 10GBASE-KR LogiCORE IP core. The test was conducted at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory. The test validated that the IP fully meets UNH-IOL’s receiver (Rx) and transmitter (Tx) electrical and protocol compliance tests for backplane applications. The 10GBASE-KR LogiCORE IP is currently available in the Vivado Design Suite.
Altera is now shipping Stratix V FPGA devices in volume production. The Altera Stratix V devices are the only FPGAs to feature 14.1 Gbps transceiver bandwidth and are the only FPGAs capable of supporting the latest generation of the Fibre Channel protocol (16GFC). Altera started shipping engineering samples of 28nm FPGAs featuring integrated 14.1 Gbps transceivers over a year ago.
