Arria® GX FPGAs are an award-winning, midrange FPGA family. Arria GX FPGAs share the same transceiver technology as the proven Stratix® II GX family. By streamlining the transceivers and creating efficient I/O cells, Arria GX FPGAs provide a cost-effective solution to connect with today's mainstream high-speed protocols.

Table 1 outlines the protocols supported by Arria GX FPGAs.
