Select an Altera® device name to see its associated part number format (described in Tables 1 through 4).
Table 1. Altera Part Number Prefixes
- EP4SE, EP4SGX, EP2AGX, and EP4CGX devices use package sizes in place of pin counts
Table 3. Altera Stratix V Part Number Prefixes
- 5SGX, 5SGS, 5SGT, and 5SE devices use package sizes in place of pin counts
Table 4. Altera Cyclone V Part Number Prefixes
- 5CGX, 5CGT, and 5CE devices use package sizes in place of pin counts
To find out which devices are available in a particular device family, or to find out more about a particular device, check the specific device's data sheet.
Package Codes and Pin Counts
Package codes are the same in all part number formats (see Table 6). Immediately following the package code is the pin count. For example, a 780-pin count FineLine BGA package type would be represented by F780. For the EP4SE, EP4SGX, EP2AGX, and EP4CGX FPGA families, the package code is not followed by the pin count, but by the package dimensions. The translation from the pin count to the package dimension is provided below (see Table 7).

|C||Commercial temperature range (0 to 85°C)|
|I||Industrial temperature range (-40 to 100°C)|
|A||Automotive temperature range (-40 to 125°C)|
Altera MAX and Classic devices use the speed grade to indicate the delay in nanoseconds (ns) through a macrocell in the device. For example, a MAX device with a -10 speed grade has a delay of 10 ns through a macrocell. Devices with low speed grade numbers run faster than devices with high speed grade numbers.
Altera Stratix series, Cyclone series, MAX II, MAX IIG, MAX IIZ, and Excalibur devices use the speed grade to indicate the relative performance of the device. Devices with low speed grade numbers run faster than devices with high speed grade numbers. For example, a Stratix III FPGA with a three speed grade is the fastest available Stratix III FPGA.
Suffixes are optional letters at the end of a part number that specify certain device features. Not all suffixes are available with all part numbers (see Table 9).
