For over 4 years, Micron and Altera have been collaborating on HMC technologies. This ongoing work led to the industry’s first demonstration of a working HMC controller, announced last September and demonstrated at the Supercomputing ’13 Conference in Denver. The working demonstration board consists of one Micron® HMC short reach (SR) device and four 28nm Altera Stratix V FPGAs, each of which has 40 GB/s of bandwidth for 160 GB/s of total bandwidth. This demonstration of Stratix V and HMC working together will enable customers to leverage their current development with Stratix V FPGAs to provide ultra-high system performance for a variety of applications that are in need of greater bandwidth, including the communications, military, broadcast, and compute markets.
