Intel acquired Altera about 20-months ago in a big $16 billion dollar deal. While they gained their existing product portfolio, it’s taken all this time before they released a fundamentally new FPGA design. The new Cyclone 10 FPGAs are a successor to the Cyclone V series, which was first introduced in 2011 and shipped in 2012.
The Cyclone 10 FPGAs squarely target the burgeoning needs of IoT, across automative, industrial, and vision applications. Intel has two different versions of Cyclone 10, a higher power GX which are meant to handle advanced I/O application, and the lower power LP line, which is designed to combine data from various inputs, but not do much of the actual processing.
Intel will be producing both on TSMC’s 20nmSoC planar process, which looks to be a holdover from Altera’s existing roadmap at the time of acquisition. Test bed units are expected to ship in the second half of 2017.
Intel this week has announced its new portfolio of FPGAs designed for small form-factor and/or low-power Internet-of-Things devices, specifically in the fields of automotive, industrial, audio/visual and vision applications. The Cyclone 10 GX and Cyclone 10 LP FPGAs formally belong to a single family of products, but both have different capabilities and were developed for different needs.
