Altera Demonstrates Dual-mode 56-Gbps PAM-4 and 30-Gbps NRZ Transceiver Technology for Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs

Altera, now the Programmable Solutions Group (PSG) within Intel Corporation, today unveiled the transceiver technology that will enable Stratix® 10 FPGAs and SoCs to support data rates up to 56 Gbps. Altera is demonstrating today the FPGA industry’s first dual-mode 56-Gbps pulse-amplitude modulation with 4-levels (PAM-4) and 30-Gbps non-return-to-zero (NRZ) transceivers. The transceiver technology doubles the bandwidth available on a single transceiver channel, while providing equipment manufacturers scalability to build future systems. Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs are optimized to support the massive amounts of data that are being transmitted across copper backplanes and optical interconnects used in data center infrastructure and telecommunications equipment. (more)
