We provide customers with the largest range of device offerings in the FPGA industryMAX brand CPLDsA wide range of FPGAs:(low-cost) Cyclone FPGAs(mid-range) Arria FPGAs(high-performance) Stratix FPGAsFPGA configuration devicesEnpirion power regulator modulesFPGA industry’s best design tools and IPQuartus II softwareQsys System Integration tool with System ConsoleDSP BuilderOpenCLARM & Altera’s Nios II 32-bit processor (16 bit version, planned), memory controllers, VIP Suite, etc.We also want to mention superior product lifecycle managementTypical 15 years+ lifecycle (2x longer than our peers)Periodic review of product lifecycles to minimize customer pain from obsoleting parts that are still in useSo, when customers partner with Altera, they are getting a width and breadth of products that no other Programmable supplier can offer.Embedded Soft and Hard ProcessorsDesignSoftwareDevelopmentKitsIntellectual Property (IP)IndustrialComputingEnterprise
3 Low Cost Families – Altera Continues Focus & Investment More performance,features, or densityCyclone VSoCNextGenerationFPGA ProductsCyclone VCyclone IVCyclone IIICyclone IICyclone®MAX 10DeliveringNext Generation ProductsLooking back the past 10 years, Altera has consistently invested in the Low Cost PLD market segment.End applications & customers using Low Cost Products remains an Altera Corp. focus.Since the FPGA market is growing ~ 2x the rate of the CPLD growth, we’ve introduced more Cyclone-class FPGAs over this period of time.The CPLD market is still important to Altera’s strategy & growth.I think we have “demonstrated” our commitment to the Low Cost PLD product segment by introducing more low-cost families than any other PLD supplier.The new MAX 10 FPGAs architecture will have features and densities of both the MAX CPLD and Cyclone FPGA product segments.MAX 10 will complement but not replace existing MAX II, MAX V, Cyclone IV, and Cyclone V families... In some cases, the new family will offer more features, at lower costs.Altera also continues to collect customer feedback for Altera’s next generation low-cost architectures.CPLD ProductsMAX VMAX® II20002013FutureIn DesignProduct Planning333

You can see that MAX 10 FPGAs add a lot of NEW features which customers can take advantage of to lower total system cost and achieve higher reliability.Using the latest fab process technology from TSMC, 55nm embedded flash + SRAM, Altera is able to fit many more features on a single programmable chip.More user logic, more on-chip memory, more, more, more, as compared to prior MAX CPLDsAnd, just to be clear, while both products are branded “MAX”, the MAX 10 device is a non-volatile FPGA…more than a CPLD.Lowering System Cost & Increasing Reliability

It’s got up to 8 I/O banks around the periphery of the die – with multiple banks per side offering more choices for different I/O support per device.The I/O can interface to a variety of different voltage levels and I/O standards.The larger density device members (10M16 – 10M50) support the main-stream external memory interfaces: DDR3, DDR2 and LPDDR2. Interfacing to legacy external memory, such as Single Data Rate SDRAM or SRAM, are available on every product.You can see the analog block (or blocks) in the top left of the die. I’ll describe that in more detail in a few moments.Plus there’s the Configuration Flash Memory and User Flash Memory also in the top left hand side of the die.Internal configuration memory Internal configuration memory has the following customer benefits: faster startup time, less board space, and a smaller bill of materials…compared to devices that require external configuration. Another customer benefit of internal configuration storage, increased security because there are no exposed programming interfaces and therefore no way to intercept a configuration bit stream coming into the FPGA because, well, there isn’t one.And, just for clarification, the on-chip FLASH is NOR type memory which is much more reliable than NAND type memory.Logic Array BlocksExternal Memory InterfacesPLL’S

This would be very useful for Nios CODE storage.Notes:Additional User Flash may be available, depending on configuration options.SDR SDRAM or SRAM only.SDR SDRAM, SRAM, DDR3, DDR2, or LPDDR2.ADC blocks available on die but may not be available in low pin count packages.Preliminary and subject to change without notice.

The “F” and “A” variants will give customers access to additional FUNCTIONS and thus will be priced higher than the “C” variant.Three Feature Set Variants To Order From
