Altera Corporation unveiled the Quartus II beta software and early access documentation for MAX 10 FPGAs, Altera's latest addition to its Generation 10 portfolio of FPGAs and SoCs. Using TSMC's 55nm embedded flash process technology, MAX 10 FPGAs deliver advanced processing capabilities in a small-form-factor, low-cost, instant-on programmable logic device.

Altera recently completed tape-out of the first MAX 10 FPGA and is working with TSMC to begin delivering the non-volatile FPGA family to customers in Q3 2014. Comprehensive details on MAX 10 FPGAs will be publicly unveiled once silicon and development kits are available.

Qualified customers enrolled in the MAX 10 FPGA early access programme are able to get a jumpstart on their designs by running design compilation and timing analysis using Quartus II software. Offering early access software allows customers to accelerate their path to market for high-volume applications that require advanced processing capabilities with low system costs and power.

MAX 10 FPGAs are designed to lower total system costs and minimise board complexity. The low-cost device family features several advanced capabilities, including digital signal processing, analogue functionality, Nios II embedded processing and external memory interfaces. The MAX 10 FPGA's small form factor, single-chip integration is even more compelling to board designers when used alongside Altera's Enpirion power solutions. These capabilities make MAX 10 FPGAs suitable for automotive, industrial, and communication applications.
