Altera / Intel® Cyclone® III FPGAs offer a combination of low power, high functionality, and cost-effectiveness. The features and architecture of the Cyclone® III FPGA family provide an ideal solution for high-volume, low-power, cost-sensitive applications. The Altera / Intel series offers densities ranging from about 5,000 to 200,000 logic elements (LEs) and 0.5Mb to 8Mb of memory for less than 1/4W of static power consumption.
Low power consumption with TSMC low-power process technology and Altera power-aware design flow
Extended battery life for portable and handheld applications
Operation in thermally challenged environments
Reduced or eliminated cooling system costs
Hot-socketing operation support
High memory-to-logic and multiplier-to-logic ratio
High I/O count, low- and mid-range density devices for user I/O-constrained applications
