With the migration to low process nodes, Stratix® IV 40-nm FPGAs utilize the latest architecture innovations and process techniques to deliver the lowest power and the highest performance of any high-end FPGA.
Stratix IV FPGAs deliver 50 percent lower power (see Figure 1) and 35 percent higher performance than the nearest competing device.
Figure 1. Stratix IV FPGAs Consume Less Power
These power savings are achieved through the following solutions:
- Programmable Power Technology
- DDR3 and Dynamic On-Chip Termination
- Process and Circuit Technologies
- Quartus® II PowerPlay Power Analysis and Optimization Tool
