Intel Stratix 10 TX FPGAs can double the transceiver bandwidth performance by integrating the FPGA with 58G PAM4 technology.
Intel Stratix 10 TX FPGAs are the essential connectivity solution for next-generation use cases: optical transport networks, network function virtualization (NFV), enterprise networking, cloud service providers and 5G networks applications.
Intel Stratix 10 TX FPGAs provide up to 144 transceiver lanes with serial data rates of 1 to 58 Gbps to facilitate the future of networking, NFV and optical transport solutions. This combination delivers a higher aggregate bandwidth than any current FPGA, enabling architects to scale to 100G, 200G and 400G delivery speeds.
New infrastructure can reach 58G data rates by supporting dual-mode modulation — 58G PAM4 and 30G NRZ, while staying backward-compatible with existing network infrastructure.
Reynette Au, vice president of marketing, Intel Programmable Solutions Group, said: “With Stratix 10 TX FPGAs, Intel continues to provide architects with higher transceiver bandwidth and hardened IP to address the insatiable demand for faster and higher-density connectivity.”
