Altera Demos 20 nm Transceiver at 32 Gbps

Altera is demonstrating the industry's first 20nm programmable device with 32-Gbps transceiver capabilities. The device is based on TSMC's 20SoC process technology.

Altera said its demo validates the performance capabilities of 20 nm silicon.

The transceiver technology will be integrated into Altera's 20 nm FPGA products, fabricated on TSMC's 20SoC process. These devices enable customers to design next-generation serial links with the lowest power consumption, fastest timing closure and the highest quality signal integrity.

Altera is currently shipping 28 nm FPGAs with monolithically integrated low-power transceivers operating at 28 Gbps.
