How Fast is the Fastest FPGA? Stratix III Performance Capabilities
Knowing your FPGA's performance is important in understanding the
performance of your system. Stratix III FPGAs deliver the industryÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s
highest performance with a 600-MHz core and high-performance DSP and
internal memory capabilities. Stratix III FPGAs include optimized I/O
interfaces with LVDS at 1.25 Gbps, and they are the only FPGAs that
support DDR3 SDRAM memory interfaces at 400 MHz.
This net seminar discusses the 65-nm Stratix III fabric and I/O architecture, as well as the award-winning QuartusÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â® II
software. Additionally, this net seminar highlights the relative
performance of the competing Virtex-5 FPGAs and the benchmarking
methodology used in obtaining these results.
After viewing this net seminar you will know:
- How fast Stratix III FPGAs are
- How Stratix III FPGAs and Quartus II deliver the industry's highest performance
- Achieve faster timing closure to increase your productivity
- How Stratix III performance compares to Virtex-5
- The expert-endorsed benchmarking methodology used to obtain these results
