Altera Corporation was a leading American manufacturer of programmable logic devices PLDs, reconfigurable complex digital circuits , from through In between these two device families are Arria series FPGAs, which provide a balance of performance, power, and cost for mid-range applications such as remote radio heads, video conferencing equipment, and wireline access equipment. Since that time, Enpirion has been incorporated into Altera by becoming its own product offering within the Altera portfolio of products.
The Enpirion products are power system-on-a-chip DC-DC converters that enable greater power densities and lower noise performance compared with their discrete equivalent. This design flow reduced design security risks as well as costs for higher volume production. The flow has been benchmarked to deliver systems to market 9 to 12 months faster, on average, than with standard-cell solutions.
Altera's HardCopy Design Center manages test insertion. Altera and its partners offer an array of intellectual property IP cores that serve as building blocks that design engineers can drop into their system designs to perform specific functions. IP cores eliminate some of the time-consuming tasks of creating every block in a design from scratch. It includes a number of tools to foster productivity.
Semiconductors manufactured on a nm process node address many of the industry's key challenges, including power consumption, device performance, and cost.
Altera's devices are manufactured using techniques such as nm immersion lithography and technologies such as extreme low-k dielectrics and strained silicon. These techniques and technologies bring enhancements to device performance and power efficiency.
The devices also feature some unique features. Embedded HardCopy blocks harden standard or logic-intensive applications, increasing integration and delivering twice the density without a cost or power penalty. Altera has developed a user friendly method for partial reconfiguration, so core functionality can be changed easily and on the fly. The next closest competitors are Lattice Semiconductor and Actel now Microsemi , each representing less than 10 percent of the market.
FPGA startup company Achronix is also a competitor but does not have any significant market share. On June 21, , Altera Corp. Altera's CFO resigned after an SEC investigation revealed the decade of misstated earning reports resulted from the company's alleged culture of backdating stock options.
