The folks at Altera have announced that Accverinos Co., Ltd. is using their Stratix III FPGAs in its latest family of ASIC prototyping boards.
The All-in-One Baseboard B-11, Stratix III Edition, which features an Altera EP3SL340 FPGA, is said to offer design engineers a verification platform rich with logic, memory and digital signal processing (DSP). Designers developing high-performance video and imaging, communications, and industrial applications can use Stratix III devices as ASIC prototypes that run at or near system speeds.
The Stratix III FPGA featured in the All-in-One Baseboard B-11 offers DDR2 interface speeds up to 667 Mbps and up to 340,000 logic elements. The B-11 board implements the connector and PHY for Gigabit Ethernet, which are tested by the Altera Triple-Speed Ethernet MAC intellectual property (IP) core. Users can simply integrate Ethernet connection by using the Altera IP core. The B-11 board integrates DVI input and output with USB 2.0 and SD card interfaces, allowing its broad use in various consumer and industrial applications. The All-in-One Baseboard B-11 can connect to other boards through HSMC and Samtec 120-pin connectors, expanding its connectivity, logic capacity and system features.
The All-in-One Baseboard B-11, Stratix III FPGA edition, is available now from Accverinos. Customers interested in learning more about these ASIC prototyping boards should visit the Accverinos Website. More information about Altera's Stratix III FPGAs can be found at www.altera.com/pr/stratix3.
