Programmable logic supplier Altera Corp. has completed the rollout of its low-cost Cyclone II field-programmable gate array (FPGA) family, the company said.

Altera (San Jose, Calif.) said all Cyclone II FPGAs are shipping today as production-qualified devices and are available for volume shipments from distributors worldwide. Altera said it rolled the entire Cyclone II family out in less than seven months.

"When designing high-volume systems with low-cost FPGAs, designers need a reliable semiconductor provider who can meet scheduled delivery dates," said Steve Mensor, Altera's senior director of product marketing for low-cost FPGAs, in a statement. "Working closely with its foundry partner TSMC, Altera continues to prove that it is the only FPGA vendor that can reliably roll out advanced products on or ahead of schedule."

According to Altera, the high densities and low prices of Cyclone II FPGAs allow designers to use them as an alternative to mid-density ASICs and ASSPs.
