Overview:
FPGA applications are demanding higher memory bandwidth and greater performance. To meet these requirements, we offer external memory solutions that are faster, better, and easier to use.


In this 20-minute webcast, you'll learn:

  • How we achieved 800-MHz DDR3 interfaces in our 28-nm Stratix® V FPGAs.
  • How we enhanced our memory intellectual property (IP) through extensive verification and more accurate timing models.
  • How you can achieve higher productivity with our memory solutions.
