Industry's Most Advanced Design Environment for 20 nm FPGAs and SoCs

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Altera Corporation (Nasdaq: ALTR) today released Quartus® II software Arria® 10 edition v14.0, the industry's most advanced 20 nm FPGA and SoC design environment. Altera's proven Quartus II software delivers the fastest compile times and enables the highest performance for 20 nm FPGA and SoC designs in the industry. Customers can further accelerate their Arria 10 FPGA and SoC design cycles by using the broad portfolio of 20 nm-optimized IP cores included in this latest software release.

Altera's 20 nm design tools feature the most advanced algorithms and deliver the highest quality of results in the industry. The Quartus II software Arria 10 edition v14.0 provides on average 2X faster compile times compared to the nearest competitor's 20 nm design software. This productivity advantage allows customers to shorten design iterations and rapidly close timing on their 20 nm design. The software also enables the highest performance 20 nm designs - providing customers more than a one-speed grade performance advantage over competitive FPGAs.

Included in the latest software release is a full complement of 20 nm-optimized IP cores to enable faster design cycles. The IP portfolio includes standard protocol and memory interfaces, DSP and SoC IP cores. Altera also optimized its popular best-in-class IP cores for Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs, which include 100G Ethernet, 300G Interlaken, Interlaken Look-Aside and PCI Express Gen3 IP. When implemented in Altera's Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs, these best-in-class IP cores deliver the highest performance in the FPGA industry.
