Global Technology Partner – Altera




For nearly three decades, BittWare has designed and deployed high-end signal processing board-level solutions that significantly reduce technology risk and time-to revenue for our OEM customers.  Our solutions are based exclusively on the following Stratix families of FPGA technology from Altera:

Arria® 10

  • Highest performance 20-nm FPGAs
  • Industry-leading programmable logic that integrates a rich feature set of embedded peripherals, embedded high-speed transceivers, hard memory controllers, and protocol IP controllers
  • SX variant of the FPGA also incorporates a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ hard processor system (HPS)
  • Variable-precision digital signal processing (DSP) blocks integrated with hardened floating point (IEEE 754-compliant) to deliver floating point performance of up to 1.5 TFLOPS
  • Supports Gen3 PCIe x8 via a hard IP block and provides up to 1150K equivalent LEs
  • Upt to 40% lower total power compared to Stratix® IV FPGAs
  • Low-risk, low-cost path to HardCopy ASICs for higher volume production
