Altera achieves production rollout of all 28nm FPGA families
Michael McManus, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Tuesday 23 October 2012]

Altera recently announced it is shipping in production all three of its 28-nm FPGA families, including Stratix V, Arria V and Cyclone V devices, with the latest shipment of the largest Cyclone V FPGA in its low-cost, low-power product family.

The Cyclone V family was developed on TSMC's 28nm Low Power (28LP) process and targets both low power and low cost for use in high-volume, cost-sensitive applications. The family also includes variants with an integrated dual-core ARM-based hard processor system (HPS) that deliver 40% lower total power compared with the previous generation.

Other features of Cyclone V include what Altera claims are the industry's lowest-power serial transceivers, with 88-mW power consumption per channel; 800Mbps DDR3 with integrated hard memory controllers; and PCI Express (PCIe) Gen2 hard intellectual property (IP) blocks with multifunction support enabling over 4,000 MIPS processing performance at under 1.8W.
