ECP5 / ECP5-5G

Break the rules of power, size and cost in your connectivity and acceleration applications

Why pay more for less? – Costing less than competing FPGAs, ECP5 and ECP5-5G provide connectivity to ASICs and ASSPs with improved routing architecture, dual channel SERDES, and enhanced DSP blocks for up to 4x improved multiplier utilization.

Small packages, twice the functional density – Up to 85K LUTs in 10 x 10 mm, 0.5 mm pitch package with SERDES. Smart ball depopulation simplifies package integration with existing low cost PCB technology.

30% lower power consumption – Low static and dynamic power with single channel SERDES functions below 0.25 W and quad channel SERDES functions below 0.5 W.

Features

  • Up to 3.2 Gbps SERDES rate with ECP5, and up to 5 Gbps with ECP5-5G
  • Up to 4 channels per device in dual channel blocks for higher granularity
  • Enhanced DSP blocks provide 2x resource improvement for symmetrical filters
  • Single event upset (SEU) mitigation support
  • Programmable IO support for LVCMOS 33/25/18/15/12, XGMII, LVTTL, LVDS, Bus-LVDS, 7:1 LVDS, LVPECL and MIPI D-PHY input/output interfaces
