Altera - FPGA CPLD Structured ASIC

Altera is one of the pioneers of Programmable Logic, following notable early leaders Signetics and MMI in introducing PLDs.

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.

Altera 10M08 Evaluation kit

Highlights -

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.

FPGA and CAD pages of Jonathan Rose

Jonathan Rose, Professor in The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto.

Architecture of FPGAs and CPLDs A Tutorial

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.
