Proactive Components, Inc. is honored to introduce Altera Corporation. Altera is a leading programmable logic device (PLD) manufacturer. The company manufactured its very first PLD in 1984 and since then has been on a path of innovation, developing designs and devices to meet the requirements of most demanding engineers.
Whether the design demands low power, low cost, high density, excess memory, higher speed or any other parameter or combination thereof, there is an Altera device that caters to that demand. With a wide product portfolio that includes FPGAs, CPLDs, ASICs, and SoC devices Altera components are used in varied application fields including automotive, broadcast, consumer devices, medical, military, industrial, wireless and other areas.
Besides devices, Altera also offers design software, design resources, development kits and cables and design and support services.
Proactive Components, Inc. stocks a comprehensive range of Altera components including the company’s FPGAs and CPLDs. While CPLDs and FPGAs are both programmable logic devices, they differ significantly in their features. FPGAs have high logic capability and contain up to 100,000 tiny logic blocks with flip flops and memory. FPGAs are suitable for highly complex applications that require a high gate count. CPLDs have less complex architecture and are designed using EEPROM. They contain only few blocks of logic (up to 100). But due to their coarser architecture, CPLDs offer faster input-output duration as compared to FPGAs.
Part number EPM7256AETC144-7N is an Altera CPLD from the MAX 7000 series. It has 256 macrocells and 16 Logic Array Blocks (LABs) with 5000 gates. This component works at a maximum operating frequency of 172.4MHz and has a delay time of 5.5ns. It has 36 I/Os and functions between 0 and 70 deg C temperature at 3.3V operating voltage supply.
Part numbers EPM2210F256C3N, EPM3256ATC144-10N and EPM570M100C5N are other Altera CPLD devices available in our inventory.
