Altera Achieves Industry Milestone: Demonstrates FPGA Technology Based On Intel 14 Nm Tri-Gate Process

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) today announced the demonstration of its FPGA technology based on Intel's 14 nm Tri-Gate process. The 14 nm-based FPGA test chips incorporate key intellectual property (IP) components – transceivers, mixed-signal IP and digital logic – used in Stratix® 10 FPGAs and SoCs. Altera and Intel collaborated on the development of the industry's first FPGA-based devices leveraging Intel's world-class process technology and Altera's industry-leading programmable logic technology.

Altera(R) programmable solutions enable designers of electronic systems to rapidly and cost effectively innovate, differentiate and win in their markets. Altera offers FPGAs, SoCs, CPLDs, ASICs and complementary technologies, such as power management, to provide high-value solutions to customers worldwide.

"Today's news marks a significant milestone for Altera and for our customers," said Brad Howe, senior vice president of research and development at Altera. "Testing vital elements of our FPGAs in 14 nm Tri-Gate silicon allows us to validate device performance early in the design process and significantly accelerate the availability of our 14 nm-based products."

Altera leverages a comprehensive test chip program to de-risk the rollout of all its next-generation products by validating how Altera IP performs using innovative process improvements and circuit design techniques prior to final product tape out. Through the use of multiple 14-nm devices, Altera continues to see very positive results in the high-speed transceiver circuitry, digital logic and hard-IP blocks that will be used in Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs.
