Altera’s New Quartus Prime Design Software Extends Leadership in Design Performance and Productivity
Update Time: 2019-12-20 13:52:12
Signaling a new era in design productivity for a new generation of programmable logic devices, Altera Corporation (Nasdaq: ALTR) today released the Quartus® Prime design software. Altera’s new software environment builds upon the company’s proven, user-friendly Quartus II software and incorporates the new productivity-centric Spectra-Q™ engine. The new Quartus Prime design software is optimized to enhance the FPGA and SoC FPGA design process by reducing design iterations, delivering the industry’s fastest compile times, and accelerating silicon performance.
“Our software tools are known throughout the industry for providing the highest levels of performance and productivity,” said Alex Grbic, senior director of software and IP marketing at Altera. “The Quartus Prime design software extends Altera's leadership by building upon decades of software innovations to provide our customers with new levels of performance and productivity for programmable logic devices.”
Quartus Prime design software users will experience the same easy-to-use front-end user interface as the previous software version; while the addition of the Spectra-Q engine on the back-end enables unprecedented compile time improvements and increased design performance with a new set of faster and more scalable algorithms. The engine also features a hierarchical database that preserves placement and routing of IP blocks to ensure stable designs, while eliminating unnecessary timing closure efforts and reducing compile times.
Working with early access customers, the Quartus Prime design software demonstrated significantly higher design performance and designer productivity in multiple Arria® 10 designs. With the release of the Quartus Prime design software version 15.1, customers targeting Arria 10 designs will experience:Quartus Prime Design Software Licensing Model
Quartus Prime design software is offered in three editions based on customers’ design requirements. The Quartus Prime Pro Edition offers the latest performance and productivity tools that support Altera’s latest high-performance FPGAs and SoC FPGAs. The Quartus Prime Standard Edition supports devices in Altera’s new product category and the Quartus Prime Lite Edition support Altera’s high-volume device families. The Pro and Standard editions require an annual software license, while the Lite edition is available as a free download with no license file required.
Altera® programmable solutions enable designers of electronic systems to rapidly and cost effectively innovate, differentiate and win in their markets. Altera offers FPGA, SoC, CPLD, and complementary technologies, such as power solutions to provide high-value solutions to customers worldwide.
