Signal integrity is a critical design requirement for bandwidth-intensive applications such as digital video and 4G wireless. Altera's FPGAs have a strong track record of superior signal integrity, and this new kit allows users to evaluate transceiver performance for jitter, protocol compliance, and equalization at up to 8.5 Gbps through a simple-to-use graphical user interface (GUI).
The Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Kit, Stratix IV GX Edition includes:
"The release of our Stratix IV GX signal integrity kit is another successful milestone in Altera's deployment of the industry's first 40-nm FPGAs," said Luanne Schirrmeister, senior director of component product marketing, Altera. "Over the coming months, Altera will deliver even more 40-nm devices and development kits that will continue to drive the evolution of next-generation markets, such as video over IP, 4G wireless and digital TV."
The Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Kit, Stratix IV GX Edition is currently available and is priced at $2,495 for the 4SGX230N/C3 kit and $2,995 for the 4SGX230N/C2 kit. To learn more about this kit, or to place and order, visit www.altera.com/pr/sikit.
