Altera Corp. has announced new packaging options for the Stratix EP1S40 and EP1S80 FPGAs, giving developers more flexibility in their designs by enabling vertical migration among devices utilizing either of the two packages.

The Stratix EP1S80 device is available in a 33-by-33mm, 1,020-pin FineLine BGA package, while the Stratix EP1S40 is offered in a 29-by-29mm, 780-pin FineLine BGA. Both devices are supported in the Quartus II v2.2 service pack 1, design software.

"The strong demand for Stratix FPGAs has prompted Altera to offer additional packaging options, allowing designers to migrate further within the Stratix device family without necessitating a re-spin of their PCB," said Steve Mensor, senior director of new product marketing at Altera.

He added, "Our vertical migration strategy offers design teams the flexibility of choosing the best device for their application, and gives customers the ability to offer increased functionality in their next-generation products by moving to a larger Stratix device without requiring a board spin."

The EP1S40 device will be offered in -5, -6, and -7 speed grades, while the EP1S80 device will be available in -6 and -7 speed grades. The F780 package supports vertical migration between the EP1S10 device up to and including the EP1S40 device. The F1020 package supports vertical migration between the EP1S25 device up to and including the EP1S80 device.
