The Altera® Stratix® IV GX FPGA Development Kit deliver a complete system-level design environment that includes both the hardware and software needed to immediately begin developing FPGA designs. With a PCI-SIG® -compliant board and a 1-year license for Quartus® II design software, you can:
- Develop and test PCI Express® 2.0 (up to x8 lane) endpoint and root port designs
- Develop and test memory subsystems consisting of DDR3 and QDR II+ memory
- Build designs capable of migrating to Altera's low-cost HardCopy® IV ASICs
- Add other Stratix IV GX FPGA-supported protocol interfaces such as 10-Gbps Ethernet, CPRI, OBSAI, SAS/SATA, Serial RapidIO® , and many others by taking advantage of the modular capability of these boards through the high-speed mezzanine connectors and over 30 different high-speed mezzanine cards (HSMCs) available.
