Hello: I want to design a board with an altera FPGA and DDR (about 2Gigabytes) so that I can read and write from this RAM at high data rates. From what I understand Altera provides users with cores for interfacing with DDR.

I've been told that Altera has patented I/O technology that makes DDR3 interfacing "better" (in quotes because that could mean anything). I received this answer when I asked about DDR3 support since we are considering migrating from Xilinx to Altera. The answer was that Altera, due to this technology, is able to support DDR3 at 533MHz clock rate while Xilinx seems to be tentative about 400M...

I get the impression that Altera is in the lead when it comes to speed on DDR[3] interfaces. Can anyone confirm/deny this? Altera claims to be able to clock a 64/72bit wide DDR3 at 533Mhz on the StratixIII: http://www.altera.com/b/stratixiii-ddr3-video.html For Xilinx, the fastest reference design I can find is 32bit wide DDR3 at 400Mhz for the Virtex5. Can Virtex4 do better? So far, ...

I posted a service request with Altera on this, but I thought I would see if anyone else has seen this problem. I have written a small 8-bit microcomputer system for my Altera DE2 board. The system has 16kB ROM that I preinitialize with an intel .hex format file. The design takes quite a while to fit because I want to operate it at a relatively high clock rate (100MHz), so I turned on s...

Since the Cyclone III is now 2 years on the market I wonder whether Altera's low-cost line is the Arria branch (with Arria II recently announced) or whether there will be Cyclone IV. Since we see the Spartan VI coming from Xilinx this year, one would expect a competing Altera product as well.

Hi all, I just noticed yesterday that according to the schematic there is no configuration EEPROM for the NIC on the Altera Nios development kit (Cyclone edition.) Yet my board has a MAC which looks relatively random (00:07:ed:0b:06:81). 00:07:ed is a prefix assigned to Altera. So... where is this number stored or derived from, if there is no EEPROM?
