DIGITAL systems’ developers can now take advantage of a programmable logic design environment free of charge with the release of Altera’s Quartus II Web Edition software.
The Quartus II Web Edition software is a design, place-and-route, and verification environment available as a free download from the Altera web site, www.altera.com.
Based on the Quartus II design software, the Web Edition includes the same PowerFit place and-route-technology, allowing users to experience the performance and lightning-fast run times delivered by the full version of the software.
Quartus II design software enables developers to quickly and reliably complete large, complex system-on-a-programmable-chip (SOPC) designs.
The Web Edition software provides high performance and ultra fast compile times by including the same PowerFit place-and-route technology included in the Quartus II version 1.1 software.
PowerFit technology uses the designer's detailed timing requirements to optimally place and route a design to meet requested performance targets easily.
The Web Edition includes all of the features needed to target selected APEX 20KE, FLEX 10KE, and FLEX 6000 family devices to meet a broad range of design needs.
Customers can use the Quartus II Web Edition software to evaluate Altera devices and try out designs in real silicon, risk free. Braemac 02 8594 5642.
