Altera Corp. unveiled the Cyclone II EP2C70 device, which it touts as the industry's largest, low-cost FPGA. According to the company, the EP2C70 FGPGA is a compelling alternative to ASICs and ASSPs, delivering high functionality at the lowest possible cost. "The EP2C70 device is the uncontested density leader in the low-cost FPGA market and it is now available from distributors around the world," said Steve Mensor, Altera's senior director of product marketing for low-cost FPGAs. "When it comes to FPGAs in the low-cost market segment, delivering product in volume from the start is paramount for customer success."

The EP2C70 device has 68,416 logic elements (LEs), 1.1Mb of embedded memory and 150 dedicated 18 x 18 multipliers, resulting in over 40 percent more dedicated digital signal processing (DSP) resources than the nearest competing FPGA, said the press release. Altera added that this makes the EP2C70 an excellent solution for cost-sensitive DSP applications.

The EP2C70 is one of the four members of the Cyclone II family already available. The remaining two devicesEP2C5 and EP2C50will be available later this month (August 2005).
