MEN is a Gold Status partner of Altera®, using their FPGA and PLD devices. Many recent MEN boards feature on-board Cyclone® FPGAs which allow incorporation of user-defined functions. Working with FPGA technology is a key factor in MEN’s product strategy – supporting highest flexibility, long-term availability and -40 to +85°C operation temperature.
Altera® Corporation is the world's pioneer of system-on-a-programmable-chip (SOPC) solutions. The company combines the reprogrammable logic technology originally invented in 1983 with software tools, intellectual property (IP), and design services to provide high-value programmable solutions to approximately 14,000 customers worldwide. Altera®'s FPGAs are uniquely positioned to displace costly, high-risk solutions such as ASICs and ASSPs, and offer a viable, more flexible alternative to digital signal processors – delivering value to a much broader market than was previously addressed by programmable logic. Altera®’s portfolio comprises industry-leading FPGAs, CPLDs, and structured ASIC products.
