Note: While Altera continues to sell ExcaliburTM devices, this product family is not recommended for new designs. Designs requiring embedded processors should consider Altera's Nios® II processor.

Excalibur devices integrate a 200-MHz processor with the APEX™ 20KE FPGA architecture, balancing the price, performance, and system integration requirements of system-on-a-programmable-chip (SOPC) designs.

Altera and third-party partners offer a comprehensive array of hardware and software tools that allow SOPC developers to seamlessly build designs. These tools include Altera® development kits, the versatile SOPC Builder for system generation, the robust Quartus® II design software, and industry-standard operating system, debugging, and compilation toolsets.
