Reference designs enable true design reuse and fast time to market by serving as technical sub-system or system blueprints, often for targeted applications. Altera and its partners develop and deliver reference designs that show efficient solutions for common system design problems. These reference designs are downloadable directly from this website or can be requested using the automated request form.
