Altera's Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs deliver 2x core performance with HyperFlex architecture built on the Intel 14 nm Tri-Gate process. Stratix 10 devices offer the highest performance, bandwidth and system integration with the lowest power compared to previous generation high-performance devices. Stratix 10 devices bring the capabilities of 56 Gbps transceivers, 28 Gbps over backplane, floating-point digital signal processing (DSP) performance (>10 TFLOPs) with hardened IEEE 754 single-precision floating point, greater than four million logic elements (LEs) in a single monolithic die, and enables multi-die 3D solutions including SRAM, DRAM and ASICs. Stratix 10 SoCs are the first high-end SoC family on the Intel 14 nm Tri-Gate transistor technology that features the next-generation hard processor system (HPS) optimized for maximum performance per watt.
Stratix V FPGAs provide the highest bandwidth, highest levels of system integration, and ultimate flexibility of any 28 nm FPGA. The device family includes variants with backplane-compatible, chip-to-chip- and chip-to-module-capable 14.1 Gbps (GS and GX) and chip-to-chip and chip-to-module 28G (GT) transceivers, more than one million LEs and up to 4,096 variable-precision DSP blocks.
Stratix IV FPGAs provide the highest density, highest performance and lowest power of any 40 nm FPGA. With enhanced (E) and enhanced with transceivers (GX and GT) variants, Stratix IV FPGAs address many markets and applications, such as wireless and wireline communications, military and broadcast. This high-performance 40 nm FPGA family includes the best-in-class 11.3 Gbps transceivers.
Stratix III FPGAs are the industry's lowest power high-performance 65 nm FPGAs. Logic rich (L) and enhanced for memory and DSP (E) variants allow you to balance your resource requirements to your design without having to design in a device any bigger than is absolutely necessary—saving board real estate, compilation time and money. Stratix III FPGAs target high-end core system processing designs in many applications.
Stratix II FPGAs and the Stratix II GX variant introduced the adaptive logic module (ALM) architecture, which uses a high-performance, 8-input fracturable look-up table (LUT) in place of a 4-input LUT. You'll find this innovative ALM logic structure used in Altera's newest high-end FPGAs. Stratix II and Stratix II GX FPGAs are available in volume and are still highly recommended for new designs.
Stratix FPGAs and the Stratix GX variants are the original members of the Altera® Stratix FPGA family. This high-performance FPGA family introduced DSP hard intellectual property (IP) blocks along with Altera's ubiquitous TriMatrix on-chip memory and flexible I/O structures.
