Altera Corp. is now shipping its first production-qualified Arria GX FPGAs, the EP1AGX50 device with 50,000 logic elements (LEs) and EP1AGX60 device with 60,000 LEs. The Arria GX family of low-cost, transceiver-based FPGAs is optimized to support PCIe (x1 and x4), GbE and Serial RapidIO standards at speeds up to 2.5Gbps.

The Arria GX family is comprised of five devices ranging from 21,580 to 90,220 LEs, up to 4.5Mbits of embedded memory and up to 176 multipliers. Built on TSMC's 1.2V, 90nm process technology, the Arria GX family of FPGAs features robust flip-chip packages ensuring optimal signal integrity to meet the most demanding applications.

The Arria GX family of FPGAs is based on Altera's success and expertise in transceiver technology. The family is complemented by a comprehensive protocol support infrastructure including software tools, characterization reports, intellectual property, system models and reference designs to easily meet standards compliance and interoperability requirements. The family addresses the rapidly growing need for FPGAs with transceivers in cost-sensitive, high-volume communications, computer, storage and industrial applications.

Pricing is $62.50 for the EP1AGX50DF780C6N for quantities of 25,000 units. The remaining family members, the EP1AGX20, EP1AGX35 and EP1AGX90, will be shipping this month.
