Achronix shipping fpgas made on Intel’s 22nm Tri-Gate process

Achronix is shipping the Speedster22i HD1000 fpga to customers. The device, built on Intel's 22nm 3d Tri-Gate process, is said to consume half the power and to be half the cost of competitive high end fpgas aimed at high bandwidth applications.

"Speedster22i fpgas address the high bandwidth and low latency requirements of high performance wireline, test and high performance computing applications," said Robert Blake, Achronix' president and ceo. "The embedded hard IP blocks not only simplify design of high bandwidth applications, but also reduce dramatically the power and cost of the end solution."

The HD1000, the first member of the Speedster22i family, features more than 1million effective look up tables (LUTs), consisting of 700,000 programmable LUTs and 300,000 LUTs catering for fixed function hardened IP. The device also integrates 86Mbit of ram, 960 programmable I/O and 64 lanes of 12.75Gbit/s serdes.

"We are very excited to have Achronix as our first custom foundry customer," said Sunit Rikhi, vice president of Intel's Technology and Manufacturing Group. "The delivery of the first Speedster 22i fpgas is an important milestone in a multiyear strategic relationship with Achronix."

Engineering samples of the Speedster22i HD1000 are now available and a development kit is also available. According to Achronix, the next device in the family – the HD680P – is supported by the development kit and will be available in Q2 2013.
