1. Intel Arria 10 Military Temperature Range Support Technical Brief
Arria® 10 FPGAs in the temperature range of –55°C to 125°C including
device configuration at both temperature extremes to support platform planning for military
applications. This temperature range allows military programs to benefit from the new
technology and economies of scale by using commercially available
Arria® 10 FPGAs.
1.1. Military Temperature Support
The switching characteristic of the military-temperature grade
Arria® 10 devices is the same as the devices with -I3 FPGA
fabric speed grade and transceiver speed grade 4 as indicated in the
Arria® 10 Device
Datasheet, with exceptions described below:
Supported temperature range:
Ambient and junction temperature of –55°C during device
power-up and configuration.
Ambient temperature of –55⁰C for device functionality
support and complies with
performance specifications using timing model corresponding to temperature
junction range from –40°C to 125°C.
Transceiver capable of driving backplane up to 13 decibels (dB)
DDR4 maximum performance at 800 MHz.
For military grade devices, the VCCLSENSE and GNDSENSE to the
voltage regulators must be connected and used.
understand the impact of termination impedance variation,
Intel® recommends that you perform
signal integrity simulation using the IBIS or HSPICE models.
The military-temperature grade
Arria® 10 devices support the following serial interface IPs:
) IP up to Generation 3 x1 and x2 modes
Triple-Speed Ethernet IP in GXB mode
Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC IP in 10G mode

support, submit a Service Request at the My Intel support
Prototyping industrial temperature grade devices may be substituted for
military temperature range devices due to the shorter lead time.
Note: You must use and close
