Compare Stratix III and Virtex-5 Core Power Consumption


Build up to 96-Port SGMII GigE With Stratix III FPGAs

Altera's proprietary Programmable Power Technology enables the Stratix® III logic fabric to consume less core power than Virtex-5. See a side-by-side comparison and see how this is possible with Stratix III FPGAs. See how Stratix III FPGAs:

  • Allow for the lowest possible power consumption without compromising performance
  • Consume less core power than Virtex-5 when implementing the same design

Get Started on Your Power-Optimized Designs

Stratix III FPGAs support SGMII GigE operation on LVDS I/O pins at 1.25 Gbps. With Stratix III FPGAs, you can build communications systems requiring single or multiple (up to 96) Ethernet links quickly and simply while meeting jitter and tolerance requirements. SGMII GigE operation is:

  • Available on fast, mid-range, and industrial speed grade devices
  • Meets jitter and tolerance requirements with LVDS pins
