My esteemed colleague, Max Maxfield, reported on October 6, 2016 that Intel’s Stratix 10 FPGAs, SoCs were Sampling. Intel had acquired Altera in 2015.
The good news for 5G is that pre-standard 5G technology testing and field trials are forging ahead of schedule for early commercialization coinciding with the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Also, it was just announced days ago that Intel is seeing fast adoption of its 5G Mobile Trial Platform (MTP) product by major network infrastructure vendors which include some of the big guys like Ericsson and Nokia.
