Drivers and Software
The date the product was first introduced.
Lithography refers to the semiconductor technology used to manufacture an integrated circuit, and is reported in nanometer (nm), indicative of the size of features built on the semiconductor.
Logic Elements (LE)
Logic elements (LEs) are the smallest units of logic in Intel® FPGA architecture. LEs are compact and provide advanced features with efficient logic usage.
Fabric and I/O Phase-Locked Loops (PLLs)
Fabric and IO PLLs are used to simplify the design and implementation of the clock networks in the Intel FPGA fabric, and also the clock networks associated with the IO cells in the device.
Maximum Embedded Memory
The total capacity of all the embedded memory blocks in the programmable fabric of the Intel FPGA device.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Blocks
The digital signal processing (DSP) block is the mathematical building block in supported Intel FPGA devices and contains high-performance multipliers and accumulators to implement a variety of digital signal processing functions.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Format
Depending on the Intel FPGA device family, the DSP block supports different formats such as hard floating point, hard fixed point, multiply and accumulate, and multiply only.
Hard Memory Controllers
Hard memory controllers are used to enable high-performance external memory systems attached to the Intel FPGA. A hard memory controller saves power and FPGA resources compared to the equivalent soft memory controller, and supports higher frequency operation.
External Memory Interfaces (EMIF)
The external memory interface protocols supported by the Intel FPGA device.
Maximum User I/O Count†
The maximum number of general purpose I/O pins in the Intel FPGA device, in the largest available package.
† Actual count could be lower depending on package.
I/O Standards Support
The general purpose I/O interface standards supported by the Intel FPGA device.
FPGA Bitstream Security
Depending on the Intel FPGA device family, various security features are available to prevent copying of the customer bitstream, and detect attempts to tamper with the device during operation.
The analog-to-digital converter is a data-converter resource available in some Intel FPGA device families.
Intel FPGA devices are available in different package sizes, with different IO and transceiver counts, to match customer system requirements.
