Cyclone IV FPGA Family Overview

Altera's Cyclone® IV FPGA family extends the Cyclone FPGA series leadership in providing the market's lowest cost, lowest power FPGAs, now with a transceiver option. Consisting of two variants—Cyclone IV GX FPGAs with integrated 3.125 Gbps transceivers and Cyclone IV E FPGAs with a 1.0 V option—the Cyclone IV FPGA family helps you meet increasing bandwidth requirements while lowering costs.
