Rugged FPGA boards based on Altera Arria 10 introduced by BittWare for SIGINT and communications
CONCORD, N.H., 3 July 2014. BittWare Inc. in Concord, N.H., is introducing the A10 embedded computing family based on the Altera Arria 10 field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and systems on chip (SoCs).
BittWare's A10 board family capitalizes on Arria 10 FPGAs's capabilities in challenging applications such as signals intelligence (SIGINT), network processing and security, compute and storage, instrumentation, test and measurement, broadcast, medical imaging, and wireless infrastructure.
The A10 board family has flexible memory configurations, sophisticated clocking and timing options, QSFP28 cages that support 100 gigabits per second (including 100 Gigabit Ethernet) optical transceivers, FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC), and support for the network-enabled Altera SDK for OpenCL.
Built on 20-nanometer process technology, Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs offer higher densities, higher performance, and a more power-efficient FPGA fabric than previous generations; they also integrate a richer set of embedded peripherals, high-speed transceivers to 28 gigabits per second, hard memory controllers, and protocol controllers.
In addition, Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs integrate hardened floating-point (IEEE 754-compliant) DSP blocks that deliver floating-point performance of to 1.5 teraflops. Arria 10 SoCs also integrate a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore hard processor system (HPS).
BittWare's A10 family consists of 11 board variants, all supported by BittWare's Board Management Controller (BMC), built-in USB Blaster, BittWorks II software suite, and FPGA Development Kit (FDK).
The A10 family comes in half-length PCI Express boards, Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC), 3U VPX, and 6U VPX. For more information contact BittWare online at www.bittware.com.
