Altera's Stratix II FPGAs Outperform Xilinx's Virtex-4 in Net Seminar

11/17/2004 - Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) is hosting a net seminar on the innovative architecture of Stratix® II devices, which provide a 39 percent performance advantage on average over the Xilinx Virtex-4 architecture. Featuring a new, proprietary logic structure called adaptive logic module (ALM), Stratix II devices deliver significant performance and resource utilization advantages over competing devices. Designers implementing high-performance systems in wireline, wireless, medical, military, and computer applications will hear about the advantages of Stratix II technology for performance-critical applications. Attendees will also learn how Altera’s Quartus® II design flow enables easy access to Stratix II performance advantages.

Altera will discuss the benchmarking methodology used to measure performance of Stratix II devices vs. Virtex-4. Kevin Morris, Editor, FPGA and Programmable Logic Journal said, “Altera has created an impressive methodology for measuring and monitoring key performance characteristics of their and competitors’ devices and tools. Designing a fair and accurate test methodology that yields reasonable metrics is a daunting task, and Altera has clearly made a considerable investment that has paid off in this area.”
