Package codes are the same in all part number formats. Immediately following the package code is the pin count. For example, a 780-pin count FineLine BGA package type would be represented by F780.
For the EP4SE, EP4SGX, EP2AGX, and EP4CGX FPGA families, the package code is not followed by the pin count, but by the package dimensions. The translation from the pin count to the package dimension is provided in the 'Package Size and Pin Count' section.
Package Type Codes
5SGX, 5SGS, 5SGT, 5SE, 5CE, EP4SE, EP4SGX, EP2AGX, EP4CE, and EP4CGX devices use package sizes in place of pin counts.
Intel MAX and Classic devices use the speed grade to indicate the delay in nanoseconds (ns) through a macrocell in the device. For example, a MAX device with a -10 speed grade has a delay of 10 ns through a macrocell. Devices with low speed grade numbers run faster than devices with high speed grade numbers.
Intel® Stratix® series, Intel Cyclone® series, MAX® II, MAX IIG, MAX IIZ, FLEX®, ACEX®, APEX™, Mercury™, and Excalibur™ devices use the speed grade to indicate the relative performance of the device. Devices with low speed grade numbers run faster than devices with high speed grade numbers. For example, a Stratix® III FPGA with a three speed grade is the fastest available Stratix III FPGA.
Suffixes are optional letters at the end of a part number that specify certain device features. Not all suffixes are available with all part numbers .
