Altera Shows 100G Enhanced Forward Error Correction

Altera introduced enhanced forward error correction (EFEC) IP cores optimized for its high performance Stratix IV and Stratix V series FPGAs and specifically designed for 100G applications such as metro and long-haul optical transport networks (OTN).

The ulti-dimensional IP cores were developed by Altera's Newfoundland Technology Centre (formerly Avalon Microelectronics).

"With the combined forecast of the 10G, 40G, and 100G transceiver and transponder market expected to grow to over $2 billion worldwide in 2014, we are well positioned to provide high-performance flexible silicon platforms with customizable IP," said Don Faria, senior vice president, Altera Communication and Broadcast Business Division. "Being the first to deliver an integrated, single source 100G solution allows us to ramp-up quickly to meet market demand for the next-generation optical networks."
