Altera Announces New Spectra-Q Engine for Industry-leading Quartus II Software to Accelerate FPGA and SoC Design

26 MAY 2015

Altera Corporation unveiled its Spectra-Q™ engine, a new technology at the heart of the company’s proven Quartus® II software, to accelerate design productivity and time-to-market for next-generation programmable devices. The Spectra-Q engine extends Altera’s Quartus II software leadership with new capabilities that deliver unprecedented compile time improvements, versatile and fast-tracked design entry, and drop-in IP integration. Now customers can design and implement at higher levels of abstraction for significantly faster design cycles to meet the next generation of design opportunities. Additional information on the Spectra-Q engine is available on the www.altera.com/spectraq webpage. The Spectra-Q engine features faster algorithms and allows for incremental design changes without needing to perform a full design compile The engine also features a hierarchical database that enables users to preserve placement and routing information of IP blocks while making changes in other parts of the design. This helps ensure stable designs, eliminates unnecessary timing closure efforts and reduces compile times. The new engine also includes a common high-level design compiler for better quality of results and tighter integration between the Quartus II software and a variety of different front-end tools.
Introducing BluePrint™ Platform Designer Built on top of the Spectra-Q engine is an industry first platform design tool called BluePrint that allows designers to perform architectural exploration and assign interfaces with greater efficiency.
