I had spoke with Charley Pryor at Altera a few months back and had asked about running a 16-bit data bus into a Stratix II and what sort of speeds we could expext to run it at. He had made the statement that they had designs running in the 1GHz range and that they had some in-house designs running at 2GHz. Looking at the data sheets from Jan.
- they show the LVDS only being rated to 840 Mbps. Interesting enough I am having a hard time finding any designs where people have used the Altera parts at these speeds.
I am curious if any of you have run any wide busses into a Stratix II near the rated speed and what results you had. Did you use the Altera synthisis tool? Was there any hidden problems to get the design to work? Any information would be helpful. Thanks
