Altera Corporation operates as a semiconductor company. The company serves approximately 12,600 customers within the telecom and wireless, industrial automation, military and automotive, networking, computer and storage, and other vertical markets. The company designs, manufactures, and markets various products: programmable logic devices (PLDs), which consist of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), including those that incorporate embedded processors cores, and complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs), are standard semiconductor integrated circuits, or chips, that its customers program to perform desired logic functions in their electronic systems. Highly integrated power devices, known as power system-on-chip devices (PowerSoCs), which simplify and drive the miniaturization of power circuitry typically found in the electronic systems of its PLD customers. Pre-defined design building blocks, known as intellectual property (IP) cores, which can be licensed by customers to add standard functions to their PLD designs. Proprietary development software, which operates on personal computers and engineering workstations, is used by customers to develop, compile, and verify their designs, and then program their designs into its PLDs. Products The company’s products consist primarily of devices, IP cores and proprietary development tools. Devices The company’s devices fall into four categories, spanning multiple architectures and families with various product options, such as FPGAs, including SoC FPGAs that incorporate hard embedded processors; CPLDs; PowerSoCs; HardCopy ASICs; and configuration devices that store the programming code for its FPGAs. Stratix Series High-End, System-Level FPGAs and SoC FPGAs The company’s Stratix product families are built using advanced CMOS process technology and address a range of applications requiring system integration across all its markets. Stratix FPGAs provide power consumption for the FPGA segment. The company’s Stratix V GX and Stratix V GT FPGAs offer transceiver capabilities for applications that require, multi-gigabit serial data transfer rates of up to 28 Gbps. Its Stratix V GS FPGAs are optimized for applications requiring variable precision DSP. Arria Series Mid-Range FPGAs and SoC FPGAs The company’s Arria product families are built using CMOS process technology and enable a simplified transceiver-based design for applications requiring high-performance data transfer protocols. Its Arria 10 FPGAs and SoC FPGAs are built using advanced 20nm process technology and provide 28 Gbps transceiver capability, 1.5 GHz ARM hard processor system performance, while reducing power consumption by 40% compared to prior generation mid-range FPGAs. Its 28nm-based Arria V GX FPGAs can be used for next-generation high-bandwidth systems across all of its markets, while its Arria V SoC FPGAs integrate a 32 bit dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore and an ARM-based hard processor system consisting of processor, peripherals, and memory interfaces with the FPGA fabric using a high-bandwidth interconnect backbone. Cyclone Series Low-Cost FPGAs and SoC FPGAs The company’s Cyclone product families are built using CMOS process technology. Its Cyclone IV and Cyclone V FPGAs use low-power process technology to meet market requirements for low power consumption. Additionally, its Cyclone V GX FPGAs incorporate up to 12 integrated transceivers with data rates up to 5 Gbps. Its Cyclone V SoC FPGAs integrate a 32 bit dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore and an ARM-based hard processor system consisting of processor, peripherals, and memory interfaces with the FPGA fabric using a high-bandwidth interconnect backbone. MAX Series Devices The company’s MAX families are instant-on, non-volatile devices that are used in general purpose and portable designs for a range of electronics equipment. Its FLASH technology-based MAX 10 FPGAs revolutionize non-volatile integration by delivering advance processing capabilities in a single chip small form factor device. MAX 10 FPGAs also feature capabilities, such as Nios II soft core embedded processor support, DSP blocks, and soft DDR3 mem
