Altera Rolls Out Nios II Architecture at Embedded Processor Forum

5/14/2004 - Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) will present the first public details on the Nios® II embedded processor, a configurable soft core CPU, at Embedded Processor Forum 2004. This presentation will focus on the architectural details specific to FPGA implementations in order to deliver mainstream processor performance while minimizing logic utilization. With more than 13,000 Nios development kits shipped since its introduction in 2000, the first-generation, 16-bit Nios processor set the standard for soft-core processors targeting FPGAs. Named by EDN magazine as one of its “Hot 100 Products of 2003” and ranked in CMP's annual Embedded Market Study among the top 10 16-bit processors designers are considering using in their next design, the Nios processor has proven itself many times over in applications ranging from fish finders to advanced communications sub-systems. Also, come see Altera at the product showcase.
