FPGA with Field Programmable Gate Array technology by EP4CE30F23C8N

EP4CE30F23C8N General Description

The EP4CE30F23C8N is a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) manufactured by Intel (formerly Altera). It belongs to the Cyclone IV E series and features 30,000 logic elements (LEs), which are basic building blocks for implementing digital circuits. The "F23" designation indicates its speed grade, with performance characteristics specified by Intel. The "C8" suggests it comes in a ceramic package, while the "N" signifies a RoHS-compliant package.This FPGA supports various configurable features like digital signal processing (DSP) blocks, memory blocks, and embedded processors, making it suitable for a wide range of applications including telecommunications, industrial automation, and automotive systems. With its embedded hard intellectual property (IP) cores, developers can integrate functions such as memory controllers and PCIe interfaces, reducing design complexity and time to market. Its versatility, low power consumption, and cost-effectiveness make it a popular choice for designers seeking flexibility in their electronic systems
