In the Arria II GX FPGA Development Kit, designers will find hardware and software resources for rapid evaluation of the company’s Arria II GX devices, which are mid-range 40-nm FPGAs. The kit is targeted at implementation of a wide range of high-performance digital functions in communications, broadcast, computer and storage, test and measurement, medical and military applications. The Arria II GX FPGA Development Kit reduces development time by providing a complete system of pre-verified components and supporting hardware reference designs. For example, the development kit offers an entire PCI Express (PCIe) Gen1 end-point design package, featuring a PCI-SIG-compliant Arria II GX FPGA-based development board with an embedded PCIe Gen1 hard IP core. A wide range of development resources are also available on Altera’s website, including free PCIe training as well as PCIe, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), and SDI-based reference designs to help designers get started quickly. There’s also a database of over 20 readily available mezzanine cards to address specific application and market needs. The Arria II GX FPGA Development Kit comes complete with a development board featuring an Arria II GX (EP2AGX125EF35) FPGA with twelve transceivers; a one-year license for Quartus II Design Software, Development Kit Edition; and access to Altera's MegaCore IP library including the Nios II Embedded Design Suite. The Arria II GX FPGA Development Kit is currently available and priced at $1495. ALTERA CORP., San Jose, CA. (408) 544-7000.
