Altera Corporation Unveils Nine New Altera Enpirion Powersoc Devices

Altera Corporation has unveiled nine new Altera Enpirion power system-on-chip, or PowerSoC, devices. The new Altera Enpirion PowerSoC devices comply with the Automotive Electronics Council qualification standard temperature grade 2, a critical stress test qualification for automotive integrated circuits. The newly qualified Enpirion devices include step-down PowerSoCs from the EP53xx and efficiency-optimized EN63xx families, supporting load currents up to 12 amps. Unlike discrete power products, these turnkey solutions give designers complete power systems that are fully simulated, characterized and production-qualified, streamlining the design-in process and making it much faster. These pre-tested power solutions are ideal for use with Altera's automotive-grade Cyclone FPGAs and SoCs and MAX FPGAs and CPLDs. Altera Enpirion PowerSoCs offer up to 96% peak efficiency and are ideal for the following applications: infotainment and driver information-Head units, display interfaces, instrument clusters, head-up displays, human-machine interface technology, and rear-seat entertainment systems; ADAS-Forward-looking cameras, surround view systems, radar, light detection and ranging, rear-view cameras, e-mirrors and telematics applications; and Electric vehicle and powertrain-Engine control unit, battery management systems, motor control, power conversion and adaptive suspension.

Altera Corporation Expands Automotive-Grade Product Portfolio with Highly Integrated PowerSoC

Altera Corporation announced nine new Altera(R) Enpirion(R) power system-on-chip (PowerSoC) devices that fully comply with the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC-Q100) qualification standard temperature grade 2, a critical stress test qualification for automotive integrated circuits (ICs). The newly qualified Enpirion devices include step-down PowerSoCs from the EP53xx and efficiency-optimized EN63xx families, supporting load currents up to 12 amps. Unlike discrete power products, these turnkey solutions give designers complete power systems that are fully simulated, characterized and production-qualified, streamlining the design-in process and making it much faster. These pre-tested power solutions are ideal for use with Altera's automotive-grade Cyclone(R) FPGAs and SoCs and MAX(R) FPGAs and CPLDs. Altera Enpirion PowerSoCs offer up to 96% peak efficiency and are ideal for the following applications: Infotainment and driver information--Head units, display interfaces, instrument clusters, head-up displays (HUDs), human-machine interface (HMI) technology, and rear-seat entertainment (RSE) systems. ADAS-Forward-looking cameras, surround view systems, radar, light detection and ranging (LIDAR), rear-view cameras, e-mirrors (electronic mirrors) and telematics (V2X) applications. Electric vehicle and powertrain--Engine control unit (ECU), battery management systems, motor control, power conversion (DC/DC, AC/DC) and adaptive suspension.

Altera Corporation and ARM Announce Long-Term Agreement to Expand Their Strategic Partnership for Embedded Software Development Tools for SoC FPGAs

Altera Corporation and ARM announced a long-term agreement to expand their strategic partnership for embedded software development tools for SoC FPGAs. In 2012, Altera and ARM announced the creation of the ARM(R) Development Studio 5 (DS-5(TM)) Altera(R) Edition, which pioneered the invention of FPGA-Adaptive Debugging for SoC FPGAs. Through the expanded agreement announced on Oct. 1, 2014, the ARM DS-5 Altera Edition toolkit is being enlarged to include the following additional tools: ARM Compiler 5 and ARM Compiler 6, providing the only build tool chains specifically designed to optimize software for the Cortex(R)-A9 and Cortex-A53 processors in Altera's SoC portfolio; Debug support for ARM Cortex-A53 quad-core processor in Stratix(R) 10 SoC, including FPGA-Adaptive Debug capabilities for removing the debug barrier between the multi-core subsystem and FPGA fabric. The companies also agreed to a long-term OEM agreement for DS-5 Altera Edition to provide support for all future ARM-based Altera SoC devices, ensuring a consistent, software development platform across Altera's portfolio of SoC FPGAs. ARM Development Studio 5 is ARM's tools solution for embedded software development. ARM DS-5 Altera Edition is a complete tools solution exclusively for Altera SoCs, sold and distributed by Altera, and optimized to remove the debugging barrier between the integrated multi-core CPU subsystem and the FPGA fabric. The new DS-5 Altera Edition provides a substantial productivity gain for product development based on Altera SoC FPGAs. Key features include the following: Debug and trace support for 32-bit dual-core Cortex-A9 CPUs in Cyclone(R) V, Arria(R) V and Arria 10 SoCs and 64-bit quad-core Cortex-A53 in Stratix 10 SoCs; ARM Compiler 5 (ARMv7) and ARM Compiler 6 (ARMv8) tool chains; FPGA-Adaptive Debug support for SoC FPGAs, including software register views of IP programmed into the FPGA and cross-triggering between CPU and FPGA logic domains for hardware/software co-debugging; advanced trace, including time-correlated events in FPGA fabric with software events and processor instruction trace; DS-5 Streamline(TM) performance analyzer for identification and correction of system-level bottlenecks. DS-5 Altera Edition is exclusively available for Altera SoCs. One license is included in every Altera SoC development kit at no extra cost. DS-5 Altera Edition is also included in the Altera SoC Embedded Design Suite, which is available for $995 or as a free 30-day evaluation at http://dl.altera.com/soceds/?edition=subscription. The next release of DS-5 Altera Edition, which will add the ARM Compiler 5, is planned for November 2014. Existing customers under valid maintenance can receive the new release at no cost.
