Achronix demonstrates power saving benefits of embedded 100G Ethernet in 22-nm FPGAs
Speedster22i claims to be the only FPGAs that have hardened IP for communication applications including 100G Ethernet, 100G Interlaken, PCI Express Gen3 x8 and DDR3 memory controllers.
“The hardened IP functions in Speedster22i FPGAs translate directly into power and cost savings for high bandwidth communication applications,” said Steve Mensor, vice president of Marketing at Achronix. “More importantly, the hardened IP functions eliminate the challenges associated with closing timing for these high performance applications.”
Speedster22i FPGAs are built on Intel’s advanced 22 nm, 3-D Tri-Gate transistor technology. Speedster22i HD devices consume half the power and are half the cost of competitive high-end FPGAs for targeted high bandwidth applications. The 100G Ethernet was demonstrated on the HD1000 device, which has 1 million effective programmable look-up-tables (LUTs). The HD680 is the second member of the Speedster22i family and will begin shipping in Q1 2014.
