Altera Corp. has announced the availability of the EP1C4 device, the final member of its Cyclone FPGA family. The EP1C4 device offers up to 301 I/O pins and 4,000 logic elements at a cost as low as 2.5 cents per I/O, providing designers with the lowest cost per I/O of any FPGA available on the market today.

Providing designers of high-volume, price-sensitive applications with the flexibility of an FPGA at ASIC prices, the Cyclone devices are designed from the ground up for the lowest cost, and are built on TSMC's 0.13?m, all-layer copper process. Supporting emerging I/O standards, all Cyclone devices include embedded RAM blocks and other features intended to facilitate the use of FPGA technology.

With the announcement, the entire Cyclone family is now available in industrial-grade versions. Cyclone industrial-grade devices are specified to be fully functional from -40C to 100C (junction).

The EP1C4 is available for $8.50 for 50,000-unit quantities, and $7.50 for 250,000-unit quantities.
