Intel Agilex 7 FPGAs with F-Tile to support 5G networks

Intel announced the launch of Intel Agilex 7 FPGAs with F-Tile, equipped with the fastest field-programmable gate array (FPGA) transceivers.
Intel technology for 5GAgilex 7 enables Intel to strengthen its presence in optical networking, data centers, broadcast studios, medical testing facilities and 5G networks.

Intel’s F-Tile-enabled Agilex 7 FPGAs deliver flexible hardware solutions will deliver up to 116 gigabits per second (Gbps) and hardened 400 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) intellectual property (IP) to help customers address challenges across bandwidth-intensive areas, including data centers and high-speed networks.

“Intel’s Agilex 7 with F-Tile is loaded with transceivers that deliver more flexibility, bandwidth and data rate performance than any other FPGA on the market today,” said Shannon Poulin, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of the Programmable Solutions Group.

Agilex 7 with F-Tile supports networking, cloud or embedded applications, bandwidth-intensive applications like IPUs (infrastructure processing units) and compute-intensive applications. It doubles the bandwidth per channel compared to previous-generation Intel FPGAs and enables new products that deliver increased data traffic while reducing power and maintaining strict form-factor limitations.

Built on Intel’s 10 nanometer SuperFin process technology, Agilex 7 with F-Tile offers versatility to enable 400 Gbps to 1.6 Tbps optical networking applications as well as applications such as 25/50G passive optical network for high-speed broadband applications or broadcast standards like HDMI and SDI.
