Altera - FPGA CPLD Structured ASIC
Altera develops many features that are geared towards system-on-a-programmable-chip (SOPC) capability. Some of the more recent examples include embedded memory, embedded processors, and high-speed transceivers.
MAX 10 FPGAs are built on TSMC’s 55 nm embedded NOR flash technology, enabling instant-on functionality. Integrated features include analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and dual configuration flash allowing you to store and dynamically switch between two images on a single chip.
Analog blocks—Integrated analog blocks with ADCs and temperature sensor provide lower latency and reduced board space with more flexible sample-sequencing.
DSP blocks—As the first non-volatile FPGA with DSP, MAX 10 FPGAs are ideal for high-performance, high-precision applications using integrated 18x18 multipliers.
Altera 10M08 Evaluation kit provides easy access to the FPGA's I/O and ADC block and interfaces to potentiometer, LEDs, push-buttons, switches and several different connectors for expansion.

Xilinx - Programmable SoC and FPGA
Developer and fabless manufacturer of a class of reconfigurable hardware chips known as field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). It was founded by Ross Freeman (FPGA inventor), Bernie Vonderschmitt (fabless pioneer), and Jim Barnett in 1984 and was based in Silicon Valley.
Product Line include Programmable FPGA, 3D IC, SoC, CPLD and Configuration Memory solutions. Embedded Processing, DSP and Connectivity Solutions. An extensive catalog of base-level cores is available to address the general needs of all designers.
Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC ZC702 Evaluation Kit
The Evaluation Kit includes all the basic components of hardware, design tools, IP, and pre-verified reference designs including a targeted design, enabling a complete embedded processing platform. The included pre-verified reference designs and industry-standard FPGA Mezzanine Connectors (FMC) allow scaling and customization with daughter cards.

Jonathan Rose, Professor in The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto.
This paper provides a tutorial survey of architectures of commercially available high-capacity ﬁeld-programmable devices (FPDs). We ﬁrst deﬁne the relevant terminology in the ﬁeld and then describe the recent evolution of FPDs. The three main categories of FPDs are delineated: Simple PLDs (SPLDs), Complex PLDs (CPLDs) and Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). We then give details of the architectures of all of the most important commercially available chips, and give examples of applications of each type of device.
The Publications page and the FPGA CAD Software are of interest for Digital Design Community.
