Altera Corp. released what it claims as the industry's largest and fastest FPGA qualified for productionthe Stratix II EP2S90 device.

"Like the previous Stratix generation, nearly every aspect of the Stratix II family's rollout has been exceptional," said Louie Leung, marketing director of Asia Pacific at Altera. "Stratix II devices are not only the fastest-ramped 90nm FPGAs, but also the highest-density and highest-performance production-qualified FPGAs, delivering a 39 percent performance advantage on average over any other available FPGA."

The new EP2S90 has 90,960 equivalent logic elements (LEs) and more than 4.3MB of embedded memory. It joins the EP2S30 device as the second member of the Stratix II FPGA family to be qualified for production, and the fourth member of the family overall to be shipping to customers.

The entire Stratix II family will move to production status during the first half of 2005. For more information about Stratix II devices, visit the company's website.
