Additional Resources

Altera Cyclone V FPGAs provide the market's lowest system cost and lowest power FPGA solution for applications in the industrial, wireless, wireline, broadcast, and consumer markets. The family integrates an abundance of hard intellectual property (IP) blocks to enable you to do more with less overall system cost and design time. The SoC FPGAs in the Cyclone V family offer unique innovations such as a hard processor system (HPS) centered around the dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processor with a rich set of hard peripherals to reduce system power, system cost, and board size. The family comes in six targeted variants:

FPGAs
  • Cyclone V E FPGA with logic only
  • Cyclone V GX FPGA with 3.125-Gbps transceivers
  • Cyclone V GT FPGA with 5-Gbps transceivers
SoC FPGAs
  • Cyclone V SE SoC FPGA with ARM-based HPS and logic
  • Cyclone V SX SoC FPGA with ARM-based HPS and 3.125-Gbps transceivers
  • Cyclone V ST SoC FPGA with ARM-based HPS and 5-Gbps transceivers


Shared Features
  • Industry-Leading Low Power and Low System Cost:
    • Built on TSMC's 28-nm Low-Power (28LP) process
    • 88-mW maximum power consumption per channel at 5 Gbps
    • Over 4,000 MIPS (Dhrystones 2.1 benchmark) processing performance for under 1.8 W (for SoC FPGA)
    • Lower power due to increased use of hard intellectual property (IP) blocks.
SoC FPGA Features
  • Integrated HPS lets you reduce system power, system cost, and board space:
    • Consists of processors, peripherals, and memory controller
  • Performance and ecosystem of an applications-class ARM® processor combined with the flexibility, low cost, and low power consumption of the Cyclone V FPGAs.
