HardCopy II ASIC fitting techniques

Engineers often use a flexible, reprogrammable Stratix II FPGA for prototyping a project, and then transfer the design to a faster, more economical HardCopy II ASIC for mass production. This application note describes some possible design considerations and solutions for fitting a Stratix II FPGA design into a HardCopy II ASIC.

HardCopy II ASICs are low-cost, high-performance 1.2V, 90nm ASICs with pinouts, densities, and architectures that complement Stratix II FPGAs. HardCopy II ASIC features, such as phase-locked loops (PLLs), memory, and I/O elements (IOEs), are functionally and electrically equivalent to the Stratix II FPGA features. The combination of Stratix II FPGAs for in-system prototype and design verification, HardCopy II ASICs for high-volume production, and the Quartus II design software, provides a complete, low-risk ASIC solution.
