Altera / Intel Arria® V Midrange FPGAs

Altera / Intel® Arria® V Midrange FPGAs consist of a comprehensive offering of mid-range FPGAs ranging from low-power 6Gbps and 10Gbps applications to high mid-range FPGA bandwidth 12.5Gbps transceivers. The Altera / Intel® Arria® V devices are ideal for power-sensitive wireless infrastructure equipment, 20G/40G bridging, switching, and packet processing applications, high-definition video processing and image manipulation, and intensive digital signal processing (DSP) applications.


  • Two variants:
    • Arria® V GT FPGAs offer low power mid-range FPGA for applications that require up to 20 transceivers at 10.3125Gbps and SFF 8431 compliance
    • Arria® V GX FPGAs offer low power mid-range FPGA for applications that require up to 32 backplane-capable 6.5536Gbps transceivers
  • Low static power 
  • Improved logic integration and differentiation capabilities
  • Increased bandwidth capacity
  • Hard-processor system (HPS) with integrated Arm® Cortex®-A9 MPCore processor
  • Internal memory blocks
    • M10K-10Kb memory blocks with soft error correction code (ECC)
    • M20K-20Kb memory blocks with hard ECC (Arria V GZ devices only)
  • Memory logic array block (MLAB)—640-bit distributed LUTRAM where you can use up to 50% of the ALMs as MLAB memory
  • Embedded hard IP blocks
  • Low system cost
  • TSMC's 28nm process technology
  • Thermal composite flip-chip BGA packaging
  • High-performance FPGA fabric
  • Clock networks 
    • Up to 650MHz global clock network
    • Global, quadrant, and peripheral clock networks
    • Clock networks that are not used can be powered down to reduce dynamic power
  • Phase-locked loops (PLLs)
  • FPGA general-purpose I/Os (GPIOs)
  • External memory interface
  • Memory interfaces with low latency (low-power high-speed serial interface)


  • Lowest total power for mid-range applications in:
    • Remote radio units
    • 10G / 40G line cards
    • Broadcast studio equipment
