Altera Corp. has announced the availability of its first development kit for the Arria GX FPGA family, claimed to be the only risk-free low-cost FPGAs with transceivers. The Arria GX Development Kit delivers a robust environment for the development and testing of designs implementing high-speed serial interfaces such as PCIe, Serial RapidIO (SRIO) and Gbe. The kit helps designers achieve significant cost savings and a dramatic reduction in overall design time. The development kit can be used by system designers as a starting point for their own designs.

"As the industry transitions from parallel to serial IO, engineers face new, unfamiliar technical risks in both board and FPGA design." said Luanne Schirrmeister, director of marketing, low-cost products at Altera. "Our Arria GX FPGAs reduce the risk of making the transition and the development kit enables users to quickly verify their system in hardware."

The Arria GX Development Kit targets PCIe x1 and x4, SRIO, and Gigabit Ethernet designs. It includes a PCI Express form factor board featuring an Arria GX FPGA with 60K logic elements, 350 user I/O pins and eight transceiver channels.
