from Altera

The Altera® Stratix® V GX FPGA Development Kit provides a complete design environment that includes all the hardware and software you need to begin developing FPGA designs immediately. The development kit is RoHS compliant. You can use this development kit to do the following:

  • Develop and test PCI Express® (PCIe®) designs at data rates up to Gen3 using the PCIe short card form factor-compliant development board
  • Develop and test memory subsystems for DDR3, QDR II+, or RLDRAM II memories
  • Use the high-speed mezzanine card (HSMC) connectors to interface to one of over 35 different HSMCs provided by Altera partners, supporting protocols, such as Serial RapidIO®, 10 Gbps Ethernet, SONET, CPRI, OBSAI, and others
