Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR), the first FPGA vendor to offer a PCI-SIG compliant PCI Express solution, will demonstrate a PCI Express to Gigabit Ethernet bridge at the Spring Intel Developer Forum (IDF). Supported by PLD Applications and MorethanIP, Alteras complete and compliant PCI Express solutions feature Stratix® GX FPGAs and offer designers a low-risk methodology for their PCI Express applications.
Altera and Modelware will also demonstrate an Advanced Switching solution for point-to-point high-speed serial communication using Alteras Stratix GX FPGA and Modelwares Advanced Switching IP. Implemented on an Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) backplane, this triple speed demonstration features three different data streams simultaneously operating at three different data rates in an ATCA chassis. Stratix GX FPGAs provide system architects with a fully integrated solution that enables them to implement Advanced Switching today.
