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.
Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs are the most advanced, highest-performance 20 nm FPGAs available today. The devices integrate several industry-leading features that make Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs well suited to meet the requirements of high-end, high-performance systems.
The Quartus II software Arria 10 edition v14.0 is available now for download. The software is available as a subscription edition and includes a free 30-day trial. The annual software subscription is $2,995 for a node-locked PC license. Engineering samples of Arria 10 FPGAs are shipping today.
