Altera Showcasing Transceiver Innovations that Enable CFP4 Interoperability and 25G Backplane Interfaces at DesignCon 2014

Technology Demonstrations, Panel Discussions and Paper Presentations Provide Further Details into Altera Generation 10 FPGAs and SoCs

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Altera Corporation (Nasdaq: ALTR) will discuss how its innovations in semiconductor design are paving the way for its Generation 10 products to enable the evolution of next-generation networks at DesignCon 2014.  Altera experts in high-speed SERDES, signal integrity, jitter and packaging technology will showcase Altera technologies being developed today and how they will drive future high-speed communications systems, including CFP4 optical module interconnects, 56 Gbps chip-to-chip interconnects, 25+ Gbps backplane and heterogeneous multi-chip integration. Altera participation at DesignCon 2014 includes in-booth silicon demonstrations, panel discussions, paper presentations and tutorials.

The industry-leading transceiver technology Altera offers today forms the backbone of high-end networks and communications infrastructure. Altera's transceiver technology delivers the industry's highest serial bandwidth, enabling the evolution of backplane and high-speed optical networking systems. The innovations Altera has made in transceiver technology over generations of products provide the foundation for future development of transceivers to drive CEI-56G links that will offer the connectivity to drive the next generation of 400G optical networks, 400G line cards and beyond.

At DesignCon 2014, Altera is demonstrating in silicon several key capabilities that will be offered as part of the company's Generation 10 portfolio of products, including a 25G backplane demonstration and an interoperability demonstration between a Stratix® V FPGA and next-generation low-cost, low-power CFP4 modules.

In-booth Demonstrations:

  • In the TE Connectivity booth #607, Altera, Texas Instruments (TI) and TE Connectivity will show a 25G backplane demonstration featuring Stratix V GT FPGAs and TI re-timers. The demonstration shows key interoperability for enabling next-generation backplane ecosystems.
  • In the Yamaichi booth #519, Stratix V GT FPGAs are being used in a CFP4 active copper cable demonstration, showing the interoperability between the FPGA's 28-Gbps transceivers and Yamaichi's CFP4 module and cable assembly components. The technology being demonstrated today will enable future 400G Ethernet systems.

In addition to silicon demonstrations, Altera experts will showcase innovations in transceiver and semiconductor design with DesignCon attendees through papers, panels and tutorials. For a complete schedule of Altera events visit http://www.altera.com/designcon.
