Altera 28nm FPGA and ASIC Device Portfolio

Altera introduced their portfolio of 28nm devices (Cyclone V, Arria V and FPGA families, and HardCopy V ASIC family). With the 28nm portfolio, Altera leverages transceiver technology, product architecture, intellectual property (IP) integration, and process technology to optimize solutions that address diverse design challenges. Altera’s 28nm device portfolio will be supported by their Quartus II development software. The Quartus II software’s new Qsys system-level integration tool simplifies IP integration.
