Conclusion 1. Both Xilinx or Altera are suitable from FPGA technology and tool point Conclusion 1. Both Xilinx or Altera are suitable from FPGA technology and tool point of view. 2. 40 nm for lowest power consumption: - Stratix IV EP 4 SGX 230 is available now - Virtex 6 is expected in Q 2 2009 3. 65 nm: Xilinx Virtex 5 are available, but prices for larger FPGA are still high.
