Additional information about the EP2AGX45DF29I5N: The Arria II device family is designed specifically for ease-of-use. The
cost-optimized, 40-nm device family architecture features a low-power,
programmable logic engine and streamlined transceivers and I/Os. Common
interfaces, such as the Physical Interface for PCI Express (PCIe ), Ethernet, and
DDR3 memory are easily implemented in your design with the Quartus II software,
the SOPC Builder design software, and a broad library of hard and soft intellectual
property (IP) solutions from Altera. The Arria II device family makes designing for
applications requiring transceivers operating at up to 6.375 Gbps fast and easy.
