Altera has released its latest FPGA design software called Quartus II software Arria 10 edition supporting 20 nm FPGAs and SoCs.
The software release includes advanced timing models and final pin outs to enable board layout. The Quartus II software Arria 10 edition supports multiple FPGA and SoC devices, including the largest density midrange Arria 10 device, featuring up to 1.15 million logic elements (LEs).
“For the past six months early access customers have successfully used Quartus II software to design Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs, and today we are pleased to make this software support available to all users who want the quickest path to 20 nm devices,” said Premal Buch, vice president of software engineering at Altera. “Quartus II software uses leading-edge algorithms that take advantage of modern multi-core computing technologies. Architecting our software this way enables us to extend Quartus II software support to Altera’s next-generation product families and continue to deliver the industry’s fastest compile times.”
The Quartus II software Arria 10 Edition is available now for download at www.altera.com/quartus-arria10. The software is available as a subscription edition and includes a free 30-day trial. The annual software subscription is $2,995 for a node-locked PC license.
