The Stratix® FPGA family is the first-generation of Altera's Stratix FPGA series. For most applications, this FPGA generation is superseded by the award winning 90-nm Stratix II family and Altera's leading edge 65-nm Stratix III and 40-nm Stratix IV FPGA generations. These newer FPGA families offer features found in previous generations of the Stratix FPGA series, including:

The first generation Stratix FPGA family is a low-power high-performance FPGA family and is still the FPGA family of choice for military and aerospace applications where a wide operating temperature range is required.
