HardCopy Devices

HardCopy® Stratix® structured ASICs, Altera’s second-generation HardCopy structured ASICs, are low-cost, high-performance devices with the same architecture as the high-density Stratix FPGAs. The combination of Stratix FPGAs for prototyping and design verification, HardCopy Stratix devices for high-volume production, and the Quartus® II design software beginning with version 3.0, provide a complete and powerful alternative to ASIC design and development.

HardCopy Stratix devices are architecturally equivalent and have the same features as the corresponding Stratix FPGA. They offer pin-to-pin compatibility using the same package as the corresponding Stratix FPGA prototype. Designers can prototype their design to verify functionality with Stratix FPGAs before seamlessly migrating the proven design to a HardCopy Stratix structured ASIC.

The Quartus II software provides a complete set of inexpensive and easy-to-use tools for designing HardCopy Stratix devices. Using the successful and proven methodology from HardCopy APEX™ devices, Stratix FPGA designs can be seamlessly and quickly migrated to a low-cost ASIC alternative. Designers can use the Quartus II software to design HardCopy Stratix devices to obtain an average of 50% higher performance and up to 40% lower power consumption than can be achieved in the corresponding Stratix FPGAs. The migration process is fully automated, requires minimal customer involvement, and takes approximately eight weeks to deliver fully tested HardCopy Stratix prototypes.
