I have a rather high performance design that acts as a high through-put data path with some DSP manipulation on the way through.
I had been rather certain that I was going to move through to production using Stratix/Stratix II parts. However, the other day I sat down with a distributor who was able to point out some very interesting items for comparisons with the V4 chips.
Here are the four main items brought up:1) Faster RAM 2) Potentially Lower power consumption 3) Price-points in the $120-160 range 4) More flexibility on the parallel LVDS inputs to the chip
I'm interested to hear anyone with first hand comparisons between the V4 and other chips.
