altera corp (ALTR) Key Developments

Altera Corporation Announces the Release of it's Quartus(R) II Software Version 14.0

Altera Corporation released its Quartus(R) II software version 14.0, the FPGA. Altera maintains its software leadership position for FPGA and SoC designs with this new release by delivering 2X faster compile times on average over the close competitor's design tool suite. Quartus II software version 14.0 allows users to be more productive and achieve the fast FPGA and SoC design closure in the industry. The new release includes a rapid recompile feature that reduces compile times by up to 4X when making small design changes and PCI Express (PCIe) IP solution that delivers enterprise-class performance. In addition, this release offers expanded AXI(TM) support in the Qsys system integration tool and a rapid prototyping design flow in the Altera SDK for OpenCL. A re-architected rapid recompile feature allows users to make small changes to their design and recompile in a fraction of the time versus doing a full compile. Using rapid recompile, designers will experience a speed up of up to 3X for pre-synthesis HDL changes and up to 4X for post-fit SignalTap(R) II logic analyzer modifications, while preserving placement and routing for the unchanged portion of the design. Rapid recompile now supports all 28 nm Cyclone(R) V, Arria(R) V and Stratix(R) V FPGAs. Enhancements to the Qsys system integration tool simplify the process of connecting system-level hardware components. Qsys expands its support for the AMBA(R) AXI3 and AXI4 specification to include support for AXI4-Lite, a light-weight version of AXI4, and AXI4-Stream, for point to point connections. These enhancements enable better design reuse by supporting a broader range of custom IP and easing integration with Altera and third-party developed IP. For software programmers targeting FPGAs, Altera also released updates to the Altera SDK for OpenCL version 14.0. This new release includes a rapid prototyping design flow that allows programmers to prototype designs on an FPGA accelerator board in minutes. Several reference platforms that further accelerate the FPGA development process are also included in the new OpenCL release.

Altera and Cavium Deliver Pre-Verified Packet Classification Solution for Networking Appliances

Altera Corporation announced its Interlaken Look-Aside intellectual property (IP) core has been tested and is compatible with Cavium's NEURON Search(TM) Processor. This deployment-ready, pre-verified solution provides networking OEMs a low-latency, high-performance packet interface for use in networking appliances, including routers, switches, firewalls, and security storage. The Interlaken Look-Aside IP core is offered as part of Altera's portfolio of IP cores which are optimized to provide superior performance, latency and area utilization when integrated within Altera's Arria(R) 10 and Stratix(R) V FPGAs. Altera's FPGA-based Interlaken Look-Aside solution enables interoperability between a datapath device and a look-aside coprocessor with transfer rates up to 300 Gbps and delivers more than 500 million packets per second performance. In addition to the superior performance, the Interlaken Look-Aside IP is comprised of soft and hardened logic blocks that offer customers a high degree of user interface, lane and data rate configuration flexibility for optimal integration. Altera and Cavium tested and verified the Interlaken Look-Aside solution using a Stratix V FPGA and a NEURON Search Processor. The low-latency packet interface and scalable storage space provides high performance and high capacity for Access Control List (ACL) and packet classification applications. An interoperability report is available from Altera that describes the testing methods and performance metrics achieved using Altera's Interlaken Look-Aside IP core interfacing with Cavium's NEURON Search Processor.
