The system on module is based on the Intel Arria 10 FPGA GX and offers quick prototyping and time to market
The SOM is designed to help developers and OEMs to reduce design cycles and accelerate innovations in applications such as test and measurement equipment, control and intelligence equipment, diagnostic medical imaging equipment, wireless infrastructure equipment, RADAR, automation and military applications.
Range Of Options
At the heart of the Arria 10 FPGA module is the Intel Arria 10 GX FPGA, which features 20 nm technology on an F34 package. The module supports seven GX models — GX270, GX320, GX480, GX570, GX660, GX900 and GX1150 which provide varying levels of FPGA logic elements (LEs) ranging from 270K to 1150K, offering a range of options for customers to select the best fit FPGA that serves their applications.
With 500MHz logic core performance, the GX models support 24 transceiver lanes and run on up to 40 per cent lower power, which guarantees data integrity and high performance in power and resource-constrained applications. Up to 189 user I/Os and 24 multi-gigabit transceivers each offering a data transfer rate of up to 17.4 Gbit/sec is available on two 240 pin high-speed board-to-board connectors.
The module can support interfaces like PCIe Gen3 x8, SATA Gigabit Ethernet, USB3.0, etc providing a range of flexible options that help customers towards various use cases. The module’s up to 4 GByte large DDR4 SDRAM facilitates faster throughput and an ultra-low latency data path for real-time executions.
For quick prototyping and time to market, iWave provides a development platform, which includes a powerful configuration of the Arria 10 FPGA SOM with a custom form factor carrier board. Arria10 FPGA Development board supports a wide range of high-speed interfaces like Dual FMC (HPC) Connectors, M.2 SATA, 10G SFP+, 3G/12G SDI In & Out, USB 3.0 TypeC connector and, one PCIe connector to validate Arria10 FPGA high-speed transceivers and other on-board connectors to validate the Arria10 FPGA I/Os. The LPC/HPC FMC connectors provide expansion options on the carrier board, which is compatible with a wide range of plug-in cards such as ADCs, DACs, motor control cards, RF links, etc.
