Intel recently launched the Intel Cyclone 10 family of FPGAs. Well suited for IoT applications, the new FPGAs are designed to deliver fast and power-efficient processing. They can collect and send data, and make real-time decisions based on the input from IoT devices. You can program the FPGAs to deliver the specific level of computing and functions required by different IoT applications.
Cyclone 10 GX supports 10G transceivers and hard floating point digital signal processing (DSP). Furthermore, it offers 2× the performance of the previous Cyclone generation. The architectural innovation in the implementation of IEEE 754 single-precision hardened floating-point DSP blocks can enable processing rates up to 134 giga floating-point operations per second (GFLOPs) for applications such as motion or motor control systems.
The Intel Cyclone 10 LP is the perfect solution for applications where cost and power are key factors in the design decision. These systems typically use FPGA densities that are sub 75K LE and chip-to-chip bridging functions between electronic components or I/O expansion for micro-processors. Cyclone 10 LP can also be used for automotive video processing used in rear-view cameras and in sensor fusion, where data gathered while the car is on the road is combined from multiple sensors in the car to provide a more complete view of what is happening.
The Cyclone 10 FPGA family will be available in the second half of 2017, along with evaluation kits, boards, and the latest version of Intel’s Quartus FPGA programming software.
