Additional information about the EP4CE40F29C7N: Altera’s new Cyclone IV FPGA device family extends the Cyclone FPGA series
leadership in providing the market’s lowest-cost, lowest-power FPGAs, now with a
transceiver variant. Cyclone IV devices are targeted to high-volume, cost-sensitive
applications, enabling system designers to meet increasing bandwidth requirements
while lowering costs.
Built on an optimized low-power process, the Cyclone IV device family offers the
following two variants:
■ Cyclone IV E—lowest power, high functionality with the lowest cost；
■ Cyclone IV GX—lowest power and lowest cost FPGAs with 3.125 Gbps transceivers.Providing power and cost savings without sacrificing performance, along with a
low-cost integrated transceiver option, Cyclone IV devices are ideal for low-cost,
small-form-factor applications in the wireless, wireline, broadcast, industrial,
consumer, and communications industries.
