Intel refreshed its FPGA line-up with cost-optimized offerings, released its FPGA software stack as open source, and added a new processor design based on the RISC-V architecture.\nThe first of the new products is the Agilex 3 family of power- and cost-optimized FPGAs available in compact form factors. Agilex follows the same product-naming convention as the desktop Core series; 3 is the lowest end of the performance spectrum, followed by 5, 7, and 9 series in ascending order.\nThe Agilex 3 family will come with two branches: the B-Series and C-Series. The B-Series FPGAs have higher I\/O density in smaller form factors at lower power than other Intel FPGAs\u200b. B-Series FPGAs are targeted for board and system management, including server platform management (PFM) applications.\nC-Series FPGAs offer added capabilities for a range of complex programmable logic devices (CPLD) and FPGA applications across vertical markets.\nIntel also announced the Agilex 5 E-Series as part of its early access program, with samples available to early access customers starting in Q4 2023 and broader availability in Q1 2024. These new additions to the Agilex 5 family are intended to deliver better performance per watt than rival FPGAs, thanks to a manufacturing process shrink.\nThe Intel Agilex 7 FPGAs with R-Tile, first announced in May, are now shipping. They feature CXL 2.0 and PCIe 5.0 bandwidth as well as four times higher CXL bandwidth per port when compared to other competitive FPGA products.\nSoftware update and new microcontroller\nOn the software side, Intel is making its Open FPGA Stack (OFS) software available as open source. OFS is intended as a common framework for FPGA development, offering both reference code libraries and upstreamed, open-source kernel drivers for Linux. OFS supports both Agilex and the Stratix 10 line of FPGAs.\nAnother new product is Intel's Nios V processor IP designs, which is based on the open standard RISC-V architecture. The Nios V\/c is a compact microcontroller designed to supplement FPGA implementations. It will also target all devices supported in the Quartus Prime Pro programmable logic device design software, Intel said.\nFinally, Intel has released the first F2000X Infrastructure Processing Unit (IPU) (better known as a SmartNIC). The first publicly available adapters will come from Napatech, a leading provider of SmartNICs and IPUs.
