The innovative logic structure, combined with advanced 90-nm process technology and the technology leadership of Quartus® II design software, provides Stratix® II FPGAs with a tremendous performance advantage in the FPGA industry. The latest benchmark results showed that Stratix II FPGAs are a full speed grade faster than Virtex-4 proving them to be the fastest FPGAs in the 90-nm process node.
In addition to the performance leadership, Stratix II FPGAs are also the density leader of all FPGAs, offering up to 2.2 million ASIC gates in a single device. Combining this performance and density leadership, Stratix II FPGAs provide tremendous flexibility for high-performance, feature-rich FPGA designs and are the ideal platform for ASIC prototyping.
