Altera Corp. has introduced the company's major initiative to extend the reach of FPGAs from multichannel signal processing functions to a wide range of mainstream DSP-based applications. This initiative is referred to as the Code:DSP.

Highlighted by the industry's first C-code based design flow for FPGAs, the Code:DSP initiative is aimed to sharpen Altera's focus on the DSP market by offering designers a broad range of support services, tools, and development platforms for implementing reconfigurable DSP designs based on FPGA devices.

As part of this initiative, Altera has created a DSP chapter of its Certified Design Center (CDC) and Altera Consultants Alliance Program (ACAP) to assist customers with their designs. Partner organizations are made available to provide localized DSP application expertise. Charter members of the DSP chapter include: Adaptive Micro-Ware, Colorado Electronic Product Design, Digital Design Corp., Nuvation, Plexus Technology Group, Synopsys Professional Services, Vanteon, Alcahest, El Camino, Plextek, Telecom Italia labs, and Dexcel Electronics Designs.

Moreover, Altera has also established a web-based DSP Solutions Center to provide comprehensive, up-to-date information and resources for DSP designers who want to learn more of the benefits of programmable logic.
