Terasic TR5-Lite, DE5-NET, and TR5-F40W Boards Feature Altera Stratix V GX FPGA

Terasic Technologies TR5-Lite, DE5-NET, and TR5-F40W FPGA Boards

Terasic recently introduced the TR5-Lite, DE5-NET, and TR5-F40W FPGA boards. The TR5-Lite features a small form-factor; the DE5-NET maximizes memory, speed, and bandwidth; and the TR5-F40W offers flexibility and feature expansion. The high-end Altera FPGA boards are ideal for high frequency trading, data acquisition, network and signal processing.

The Terasic TR5-Lite is a half-length low-profile board. It features the Stratix V GX FPGA with almost one million logic elements. The FPGA board includes dual external 10G SFP+ modules, two independent banks of 2GB DDR3 RAM, four independent banks of 32MB QDRII+, high-speed parallel 256MB flash memory, and a SATA port for memory expansion.
