Altera Corp. announced that Texas Instruments (TI) leveraged Altera solutions to bring its Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology to the TV products market. TI has integrated Altera devices, including HardCopy structured ASICs, Cyclone FPGAs, and Stratix FPGAs, into its 720p and 1080p DLP TV chipsets.

"Altera solutions provide us with the flexibility to respond rapidly to changing market demands while maintaining the cost-effectiveness to address customer needs," said John Van Scoter, SVP of TI, and general manager of DLP Products. "By enabling TI to quickly deliver leading- edge display features, Altera's FPGAs and HardCopy structured ASICs provide us with a critical time-to-market advantage, allowing our customers to offer the latest advances in television technology," added Van Scoter.

TI initially chose Cyclone devices for their 720p DLP product. Cyclone devices met TI's performance goals with the lowest speed grade device, resulting in the maximum cost/performance benefit. Cyclone devices were also readily available in high-volume quantities, a critical requirement for the consumer markets in which DLP technology is being enthusiastically received. Following the success of their 720p DLP product, TI adopted Stratix devices and HardCopy structured ASICs for their 1080p DLP product.
