Altera Ships Stratix II GX FPGAs for Multi-Gigabit-Interconnected Systems

Altera began shipping its production-qualified Stratix II GX FPGAs, which provide up to 20 low-power transceivers operating between 600 Mbps and 6.375 Gbps with an 127 Gbps of aggregate serial link connectivity.

Alter said its customers are now using the new FPGAs to design and manufacture multi-gigabit-interconnected systems. Many of these customer systems are now transitioning to production, including high-speed backplane and cabling interfaces, chip-to-chip interconnects, and protocol-bridging applications, including, but not limited to, such protocols as PCI Express, CEI-6G, serial digital interface (SDI), Gigabit Ethernet, Serial RapidIO (SRIO), XAUI, SerialLite II, Fibre Channel and SONET/SDH. http://www.altera.com/stratix2gx
