Embedded Processors

Intel® (formerly Altera)  provides an embedded portfolio that offers the broadest selection of soft processor cores in the industry. From the Nios® II processor, the FPGA industry’s #1 soft processor, to popular architectures from ARM® and Freescale, we have what you need to take your embedded development to the next level.

The embedded intellectual property (IP) portfolio comprises many free Qsys components as well as licensed  Qsys compliant cores from us and our partners. In addition to 32-bit processor architectures, the IP portfolio includes 16- and 8-bit microcontroller solutions from several partners. Visit our Embedded Processing section to learn more about our embedded solutions.
