Altera Corporation operates as a semiconductor company. The company serves approximately 12,100 customers within the telecom and wireless, industrial automation, military and automotive, networking, computer and storage, and other vertical markets. The other vertical market includes sub-markets of broadcast, consumer, medical and test. The company designs, manufactures, and markets various products: programmable logic devices (PLDs), which consist of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), including those that incorporate embedded processors, and complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs), are standard semiconductor integrated circuits, or chips, that its customers program to perform desired logic functions in their electronic systems. Highly integrated power devices, known as power system-on-chip devices (PowerSoCs), which simplify and drive the miniaturization of power circuitry typically found in the electronic systems of its PLD customers. Pre-defined design building blocks, known as intellectual property (IP) cores, which can be licensed by customers to add standard functions to their PLD desigs. Proprietary development software, which operates on personal computers and engineering workstations, is used by customers to develop, compile, and verify their designs, and then program their designs into its PLDs. Products The company’s products consist primarily of devices, IP cores and proprietary development tools. Devices The company’s devices fall into the following four categories: FPGAs, including those that incorporate hard embedded processors; CPLDs; HardCopy ASICs; and configuration devices that store the programming code for its FPGAs. Stratix Series High-End, System-Level FPGAs The company’s Stratix product families are built using advanced CMOS process technology and address a range of applications requiring system integration across all its markets. Programmable Power Technology in Stratix FPGAs helps provide high performance and low total power consumption. Embedded HardCopy blocks within its Stratix V FPGA architecture enable Altera to create application-targeted devices by hardening of standard or logic-intensive functions, providing further improvements in speed and lower power consumption while offering flexible embedded system functionality. Additionally, its Stratix V GX and Stratix V GT FPGAs offer advanced transceiver capabilities for applications that require multi-gigabit serial data transfer rates of up to 28 Gbps. The company’s Stratix V GS FPGAs are optimized for applications requiring high performance, variable precision DSP. Arria Series Mid-Range, Transceiver- and Embedded Processor-Equipped FPGAs The company’s Arria product families are built using advanced CMOS process technology and enable a simplified transceiver-based design for applications requiring high-performance data transfer protocols. Arria V GX FPGAs offer signal integrity with data transfer rates of up to 12.5 Gbps, providing designers a solution for next-generation high-bandwidth systems across all its markets. In addition, its Arria V SoC FPGAs integrate an ARM-based hard processor system consisting of processor, peripherals, and memory interfaces with the FPGA fabric using a high-bandwidth interconnect backbone. Cyclone Series Low-Cost, Transceiver- and Embedded Processor-Equipped FPGAs The company’s Cyclone product families are built using advanced CMOS process technology and bring programmable flexibility to cost-sensitive applications in all its markets. The company’s Cyclone IV and Cyclone V FPGAs use low-power process technology to meet market requirements for low power consumption. Additionally, its Cyclone V GX FPGAs incorporate up to 12 integrated transceivers with data rates up to 5 Gbps. The company’s Cyclone V SoC FPGAs integrate an ARM-based hard processor system consisting of processor, peripherals, and memory interfaces with the FPGA fabric using a high-bandwidth interconnect backbone. MAX Series CPLDs The company’s MAX families are instant-on, non-volatile CPLDs that are used in general purpose and portable designs for a range of electronics equipment. Enpirion
