Altera Stratix V GX FPGA Signal Integrity Development Kit for 28nm

Altera introduced the Stratix V GX FPGA Signal Integrity Development Kit for 28nm FPGA devices. The Altera kit features a Stratix V GX FPGA-based development board, one-year license of Quartus II Software, design examples, access to Altera’s MegaCore IP library, and advanced equalization functions for the device’s high-speed serial transceivers. The Stratix V GX FPGA Signal Integrity Development Kit is available now. It is priced at $4,995.

Stratix V GX FPGA Signal Integrity Development Kit Highlights

  • Evaluate transceiver link performance from 600 Mbps to 12.5 Gbps
  • Generate and check PRBS patterns via a simple to use Graphical User Interface (does not require Quartus)
  • Accessibility to advanced equalization to fine tune link settings for optimal bit error ratio (BER)
  • Perform jitter analysis
  • Verify PMA compliance to 10GbE, 10GBASE-KR, PCI Express (Gen1, Gen 2, Gen3), Serial Rapid IO, Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet XAUI, CEI-6G, CEI-11G, Serial RapidIO, HD-SDI, Interlaken and other major standards
  • Use the built in high speed backplane connectors to evaluate custom backplane performance and evaluate link BER
