The Intel® Programmable Solutions Group is at the forefront of technology innovation by providing customers with programmable solutions for leading-edge electronic systems that are shaping our modern world. Founded in Silicon Valley, California, as Altera, we have been supplying the industry with access to the latest programmable logic, process technologies, intellectual property (IP) cores, and development tools for more than 30 years.
Recognizing Altera's innovative mindset, Intel acquired the company in 2015. Our combined technology leadership and operational excellence enable today’s largest technology and system companies to rapidly and cost effectively innovate, differentiate, and win in their markets. The company brings to Intel its FPGAs, SoCs with embedded processor systems, CPLDs, ASICs, and power solutions. These technologies and solutions are preferred by customers worldwide in a variety of end markets, including communications, networking, cloud computing and storage, industrial, automotive, and defense.
Forging the next evolution in electronic design, programmable solutions deliver fast time to market and an advantage over costly, high-risk ASIC development and inflexible ASSPs and digital signal processors. We offer value to a much broader market than was previously addressed by programmable logic products.
With Intel's industry-leading technology, our customers are assured of quality and on-time delivery. We enhance our own place-and-route design software with tools from EDA vendors. With the assistance of a world-class distribution network, we service our customers around the world. This highly successful business model allows us to focus on our core competency: the development and deployment of leading-edge programmable technology that provides maximum value to customers.
