Intel starts shipping Stratix 10 SX FPGA with ARM processor targeting 5G market

Intel technology for 5GIntel has started shipping its Intel Stratix 10 SX FPGA integrated with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor – targeting the 5G wireless communication market.

Intel Stratix 10 SX FPGAs — manufactured on the Intel 14-nanometer process technology — promise densities greater than 1 million logic elements (MLE) to provide the flexibility and low latency benefit of integrating an ARM processor.

Intel Stratix 10 SX FPGAs provide an ideal solution for 5G wireless communication, software defined radios, secure computing for military applications, network function virtualization (NFV) and data center acceleration.

Intel Stratix 10 SX FPGAs can handle the high-speed data path while integrated processors enable the low latency transactions to manage flow tables for control plane processing. Intel Stratix 10 SX FPGAs provide a heterogeneous computing environment to create optimized, low latency accelerators.

Reynette Au, vice president of marketing, Intel Programmable Solutions Group, said that the US-based company provides a wide set of options for customers needing processors and FPGAs, with device offerings across the low-end, mid-range and now, high-end FPGA families.

Customers can implement their designs with the Intel Stratix 10 SX FPGA, using the Intel SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite (Intel SoC FPGA EDS) that has development tools, utility programs, and design examples to start firmware and application software development.

Intel SoC FPGA EDS also enables customers to utilize the ARM Development Studio 5 Intel SoC FPGA Edition to code, build, debug and optimize their applications.
