Altera's complete memory interface design solutions address today's high-speed memory interface challenges. Specifically, Altera provides solutions which include our memory PHY options, our high-performance memory controller options, and our multi-port front-end options. These solutions support error correction codes (ECCs).

Altera's solutions are provided as either advanced device architectures, customizable MegaCore® functions, Quartus® II design software, reference designs, demonstration boards, and/or simulation models. All of which are accompanied by a rich set of technical documentation.

The Board Skew Parameter Tool (XLS) enables easy and precise board skew parameter calculations while saving crucial design time.

Table 1 lists external memory interfaces supported by Altera®devices. Get more information using our External Memory Interface Spec Estimator.
