The Terasic DE5-Net Stratix V GX FPGA Development Kit provides the ideal hardware solution for designs that demand high capacity and bandwidth memory interfacing, ultra-low latency communication, and power efficiency. With a full-height, 3/4-length form-factor package, the DE5-Net is designed for the most demanding high-end applications, empowered with the top-of-the-line Altera Stratix V GX, delivering the best system-level integration and flexibility in the industry. The Stratix� V GX FPGA features integrated transceivers that transfer at a maximum of 12.5 Gbps, allowing the DE5-Net to be fully compliant with version 3.0 of the PCI Express standard, as well as allowing an ultra low-latency, straight connections to four external 10G SFP+ modules. Not relying on an external PHY will accelerate mainstream development of network applications enabling customers to deploy designs for a broad range of high-speed connectivity applications. For designs that demand high capacity and high speed for memory and storage, the DE5-Net delivers with two independent banks of DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM, four independent banks of Cypress QDRII+ SRAM or functional compatible SRAMS provided by GSI and ISSI, high-speed parallel flash memory, and four SATA ports. The feature-set of the DE5-Net fully supports all high-intensity applications such as low-latency trading, cloud computing, high-performance computing, data acquisition, network processing, and signal processing.
