Altera Corporation’s (San Jose, CA) new 28-nm Stratix® V FPGAs are the semiconductor industry's first devices to feature 3.9 billion transistors, the most ever packed onto an integrated circuit. Stratix V FPGAs are the only FPGAs to leverage TSMC's 28-nm high-performance (28HP) process for maximum performance and bandwidth. The 28HP process, combined with optimizations made in the FPGA design, enable Altera to dramatically increase the capabilities of its high-end device family. Features such as 28-Gbps transceivers, variable precision DSP blocks and embedded HardCopy® blocks enable Stratix V FPGAs to be leveraged in the highest performance, highest-bandwidth applications such as 100G optical transport network (OTN) multiplexing transponders, 100-GbE line cards and advanced military radar applications.
