Because a fast and robust memory interface is crucial for many designers, Altera provides the fastest, most efficient, and lowest latency memory controllers, which allow designers to work with today’s higher speed memories quickly and easily. Designing with Arria V FPGAs not only helps to make designs successful but also ensures that implementation is fast and easy. This paper describes some of the components involved in an external memory interface. Altera’s portfolio of 28-nm FPGAs provides both the highest overall bandwidth of 921 Gbps and a highly efficient solution that allows a designer to get the most effective bandwidth possible.
