Altera Corporation Releases Quartus II Software Arria 10 Edition v14.0

Altera Corporation released Quartus(R) II software Arria(R) 10 edition v14.0, the industry's most advanced 20 nm FPGA and SoC design environment. Altera's proven Quartus II software delivers the fast compile times and enables the high 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 high 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 high 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 high performance in the FPGA industry.

Altera Enables Customer Design Starts for 14 NM Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs

Altera Corporation released early access design software for Stratix(R) 10 FPGAs and SoCs, the first design software targeting 14-nm FPGAs. Customers can start their Stratix 10 designs and experience firsthand the 2X core performance gains they can achieve as a result of the Stratix 10 HyperFlex(TM) architecture and the Intel 14 nm Tri-Gate process. With this design software, Altera introduced the Hyper-Aware design flow which includes the innovative Fast Forward Compilation capability that allows customers to perform rapid design performance exploration and attain breakthrough levels of performance. With the breakthrough leap in core performance that Stratix 10 FPGAs deliver, users are now able to unlock the performance in their designs by taking advantage of the innovative capabilities of the HyperFlex architecture to reach breakthrough levels of performance not possible in previous generation FPGA architectures. Developed to enable 2X performance in a customer's design, Fast Forward Compilation pinpoints performance bottlenecks and provides detailed, step-by-step performance improvement recommendations that a user can rapidly implement. Users also receive Fmax (maximum operating frequency) estimates of their design that can be achieved by applying the recommendations Fast Forward Compilation provides. With this innovative design flow, Fast Forward Compilation gives customers an opportunity to maximize overall design performance made possible by Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs and achieve rapid timing closure. Previously, in order to achieve high-performance targets, users often needed to undergo multiple, time-consuming design iterations, including trying various design optimizations and re-running full FPGA compiles to determine the effectiveness of design changes. With Fast Forward Compilation, users receive detailed guidance for design optimization and an estimated design Fmax to leverage the HyperFlex architecture. With these insights, customers are better able to make decisions for where to most effectively invest development time to increase their design's performance and throughput, taking the guesswork out of performance exploration. As a result, Stratix 10 FPGA and SoC customers perform fewer design iteration cycles to achieve their performance targets and simplify the path to achieving 2X core performance gains.
