Altera FPGA-Based Storage Reference Design Doubles Life of NAND Flash

Altera has developed a storage reference design, based on its Arria® 10 SoCs, that doubles the life of NAND flash and can increase the number of program-erase cycles by up to 7X compared to current NAND flash implementations. The reference design includes an Arria 10 SoC with an integrated dual-core ARM® Cortex®A9 processor, in an optimized, cost-effective, single-chip solution, leveraging a solid-state disk (SSD) controller from Mobiveil and NAND optimization software from NVMdurance. This reference design provides improved performance and flexibility in NAND utilization while reducing the cost of the NAND array by increasing the lifetime of data center equipment. (more)

Altera Arria 10 FPGAs Chosen to Support Real-Time High-Speed Airborne Ethernet Interconnection Technology in Demanding Environments

Altera today announced that its Arria® 10 FPGAs have been chosen by Silkan, a provider of real-time data transmission, for its new deterministic real-time high-speed Ethernet interconnection technology. The Silkan CETRAC switch is a plug-and-play solution, using an Ethernet cable to connect critical systems in aerospace and defense (A&D) and instrumentations and controls (I&C) markets. It was developed to provide safe connectivity, low latency, and rapid delivery of information between these onboard systems, without any data corruption. The solution also supports avionics applications that must meet the requirements for Design Level Assurance (DAL) A and B, two of the highest safety levels in avionics. Silkan will demonstrate the new offering at the Paris Air Show June 15 to June 21, in Hall 4C #83. (more)
