Altera Corporation and Escape Communications Announce High-Capacity Turn-Key Modem Solution for E- and V-Band Microwave Radios

Altera Corporation and Escape Communications announced the availability of a high-performance, cost-effective and scalable microwave modem solution that enables rapid system development and accelerates production shipments for microwave backhaul and fronthaul applications. The turn-key platform includes an Arria V FPGA, host processor, Ethernet PHY, and Texas Instruments (TI) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs). The platform includes both copper and SFP Ethernet ports and supports CPRI over SFP up to 3 Gbps. For E- and V-band applications, the solution supports up to 256 QAM and RF channel bandwidths to 500 MHz providing data rates greater than 3 Gbps. The modem board interfaces with various millimeter wave OEM RF modules, allowing customers flexibility to support multiple, millimeter-wave bands; it also features adaptive coding and modulation (ACM), IEEE 1588v2, and SyncE support. For licensed band applications, the platform supports up to 4096 QAM in 112 MHz and 1024-QAM in 224 MHz channels and is offered as IP or board solution. Seamless Integration with Analog and RF Partners, TI and Infineon The Escape platform (ESM-5008) integrates TI's 12-bit, 800-MSPS ADC (ADS5402) and 16-bit, 1.25 GSPS DAC (DAC5682Z) on a compact 159-mm x 159-mm board and is provided with link management software. The ESM-5008 platform operates with multiple microwave and millimeter-wave modules enabling support for traditional and emerging millimeter applications. Altera and Escape are demonstrating full compatibility with the Infineon RF E-band millimeter-wave module (BGT70_80 SMB1) at Mobile World Congress 2015 on March 2 to March 5.

Altera Corporation Enters into Collaboration with Mentor Graphics Provide Embedded Software Developers Access to Vista Virtual Platforms

Altera Corporation has announced its collaboration with Mentor Graphics Corporation to provide embedded software developers access to Vista virtual platforms that support Altera's entire SoC FPGA portfolio, including its third-generation 14nm Stratix 10 SoCs with a 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor. These advanced SoC virtual platforms accelerate embedded software development across the entire product life cycle for significant time to market advantage and reduced cost. The Mentor Graphics Vista SoC virtual platforms are pre-built, fully functional simulation models of the ARM processor subsystems featured in each of Altera's 28nm, 20nm, and 14nm SoC FPGA families. Software developers can use the Stratix 10 SoC virtual platform to start embedded software development and debug for the integrated 64-bit ARMv8-based processor subsystem well before first silicon availability. Additionally, SoC virtual platforms simplify embedded software development and reduce the need for expensive hardware by enabling large development teams to perform application development and software regression testing in a virtual environment that models an Altera SoC FPGA.
