Providing a platform for innovation in the automotive electronics market, Altera Corp. will begin shipping automotive-grade devices for selected members of its CPLD, FPGA and structured ASIC device families. This is the latest in a series of developments by Altera to supply automotive OEMs the unique ability to build scalable platforms for emerging automotive infotainment, networking and driver-assistance applications.

Selected members of Altera's product families are designated automotive grade, including the MAX 7000AE and MAX II CPLDs, Cyclone, Cyclone II and Cyclone III FPGAs and HardCopy II structured ASICs. Altera's low-cost Cyclone III FPGAs are the industry's only automotive-grade FPGAs at the 65nm node and the HardCopy II structured ASICs are the industry's only automotive-grade structured ASICs, says Altera. The company's automotive-grade devices are ISO/TS16949 compliant, meeting ISO 9001:2000, automotive and customer-specific requirements.

"Our automotive-grade products are just one critical component of our vision for flexible and intelligently networked vehicle electronics," said Danny Biran, senior VP of product and corporate marketing, Altera. "By leveraging our proven programmable solutions, automotive OEMs can quickly create in-vehicle or after-market electronics more effectively and be assured the parts meet all quality standards."

Altera is one of the exhibitors in the upcoming IIC-China 2008.
