Altera Corp. announced that it has shipped the largest and final member of the Stratix II FPGA family.

The new EP2S180 device is touted to have 82 percent more logic elements (LEs) than any available competing FPGA. Using a third-party-endorsed methodology, the press release said, Altera has shown the Stratix II FPGA family to be on average 39 percent faster than the competition, making the Stratix II family the fastest FPGAs in the market today. The shipment of the EP2S180 device completes the rollout of the Stratix II FPGA family, with densities ranging from 15,600 to 179,400 equivalent LEs. According to the company, the family features the industry's first adaptable FPGA architecture, made up of adaptive logic modules (ALMs), which allow designers to optimize performance and minimize costs.

Stratix II FPGAs are manufactured on 300mm wafers using TSMC's 90nm, low-k dielectric process technology. All Stratix II devices are now available and supported by Quartus II development software version 4.0, released in February 2004. All Stratix II devices will be in production during the first half of 2005.
