Altera Announces High-Efficiency Power Conversion Solution for High-Performance FPGAs

Altera Corporation today announced the availability of a new power conversion solution that makes it easy for board developers to design point-of-load power solutions and achieve the highest FPGA performance at the lowest system power. The new power conversion solution, a monolithic 40A driver plus synchronous MOSFET powertrain, is optimized to meet the core requirements of Altera’s high-performance Stratix® V, Arria® 10, and Stratix® 10 FPGAs and SoCs. It offers systems designers the high-density, high-efficiency power conversion they require when integrating high-performance FPGAs into their system. (more)

Harmonic Chooses Altera Solution for H.265 4Kp60 Video Encoding

Altera Corporation today announced that Harmonic, the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, has chosen Altera’s new 4Kp60-capable H.265 enhanced motion estimation engine (EME), a server co-processing solution based on the company’s Stratix® V FPGAs to dramatically improve efficiency and performance of Harmonic’s PURE Compression Engine for the delivery of 4Kp60 content. Altera’s Stratix V FPGAs, optimized with IP from Altera and its partners, enable Harmonic’s market-leading encoding technology to deliver 4Kp60 real-time performance, while requiring substantially less power, rack space and CPU processing power than other solutions prevalent in the industry today. Altera’s EME saves precious CPU cycles by offloading Server-class CPUs, reserving more processing power to deliver industry-leading efficiency and video quality today, with spare capacity for even more improvements tomorrow.   (more)

Altera Introduces OTN Solutions for 400G and Beyond at OFC 2014

Altera Corporation today announced two new SoftSilicon® FPGA platforms that provide optical equipment manufacturers with standards-based OTN solutions beyond 100 Gigabit/s (B100G). The platforms feature an FPGA in combination with a fully integrated IP solution that reduces design time, integration processes and test phases, allowing customers to focus more on value-add technology differentiation. The new products are the Altera SoftSilicon 400G Transponder/Muxponder (TPO516) and the Altera SoftSilicon single-chip 20-channel any-rate mapper with segmentation and reassembly (SAR) (TPOC226), which can be applied in advanced ODU cross-connect systems for OTN-based transport networks. The products, which are the industry’s first fully-integrated 200G and 400G OTN solutions, will enable equipment manufacturers to streamline their development efforts as they move towards high-capacity transport.
