Altium, Altera collaboration enables new component resources

Altium has announced new devices and updates to the board level components from its Stratix IV fpga and MAX V complex programmable logic device (cpld) device families.

The release coincides with the inclusion of the device support in the latest update for Altium Designer 10, the company's unified electronics design system. The updated collection of fpga and cpld components is available through the AltiumLive portal from within Altium Designer.

"Collaboration between Altium and parts manufacturers helps us produce high integrity design IP for our customers," said Rowland Washington, content development manager for Altium. "We are pleased to be working with Altera to develop an ever increasing range of third party libraries, templates, reference designs and other ready to use design content."

This latest update to Altera's board level component content includes a full update of the Stratix IV fpga family and the addition of the MAX V low power cpld range – Altium Designer 10 now provides design software support for these devices.
"Working with Altium to deliver online design content will bring high quality Altera component models directly to the desktop of designers using Altium Designer," said Patrick Dorsey, senior director of component product marketing at Altera. "This makes it faster and easier for customers to use Altera devices in their designs using up to date, quality design resources."

The new and existing Altera components are available online through AltiumLive's board level component vault. Designers can directly access the components and linked supplier information from within Altium Designer when using a subscription enabled license, or by browsing to the AltiumLive content store via the web.
