Stratix® IV FPGA


The Stratix® IV FPGA family includes three device variants:

  • Stratix® IV GT FPGAs with transceivers: Up to 530K logic elements (LEs) and 48 full-duplex clock data recovery (CDR)-based transceivers at up to 11.3 Gbps.
  • Stratix® IV GX FPGAs with transceivers: Up to 530K LEs and 48 full-duplex CDR-based transceivers at up to 8.5 Gbps.
  • Stratix® IV E (enhanced devices) FPGAs: Up to 820K LEs, 23.1-MB RAM, and up to 1,288 18x18 multipliers.

Stratix® IV FPGAs offer vertical migration within each family variant, providing the most flexibility in device selection. In addition, a vertical migration path exists between Stratix® III and Stratix® IV E devices, so you can start designing on a Stratix III device today and move to a higher density Stratix® IV E device without changing your PCB. See AN 557: Stratix® III to Stratix® IV E Cross-Family migration guidelines (PDF). Tables 1 through 3 offer an overview of the devices in the Stratix® IV FPGA family.

With 40 nm Stratix® IV FPGAs you can reach new levels of system-on-a-chip (SoC) integration. Building on the advanced, proven Stratix® III architecture, Stratix® IV FPGAs deliver a high-density, feature-rich, and high-performance core fabric. Combined with flexible I/Os, high-bandwidth transceivers, and memory interfaces, Stratix® IV FPGAs meet the requirements for high-end digital systems in wireless, wireline, military, broadcast, and other market segments.
