Stratix II FPGA-Based Kit on Display at Code:DSP Seminar in June
San Jose, Calif., June 7, 2005—Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) today announced the availability of a new digital signal processing (DSP) development kit that leverages Stratix® II devices, the industry’s fastest and highest-density FPGAs. The DSP kit’s development board is based on the Stratix II EP2S180 device, the largest FPGA in the industry, offering five percent more logic, 50 percent more memory, four times more DSP resources, and 21 percent more user I/O pins than any other available FPGA. It provides designers the ideal platform for developing high-performance FPGA-based DSP applications as well as ASIC and structured ASIC design prototypes.
“With this new flagship DSP development kit, Altera continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing leading-edge DSP design tools,” said Brian Jentz, Altera’s DSP marketing manager. “In one complete package, designers get the hardware and software tools they need to create world-class DSP systems using the industry’s leading FPGA family.”
The Altera® DSP development kit includes a DSP development board, Quartus® II software version 5.0, the newly-released DSP Builder version 5.0, DSP system reference designs, and an evaluation version of The MathWorks’ latest MATLAB/Simulink software update. Altera’s DSP Builder tool allows engineers to create hardware designs directly from the Simulink model-based design environment.
Designers can see a demonstration of the Altera DSP development kit at Altera’s Code:DSP Video, Image, and Signal Processing Seminar series running this June in five cities in North America and Europe. The full-day seminar brings together top companies and leading-edge products that help designers boost DSP performance and lower overall costs for their next-generation FPGA-based system architectures.
