Increases Intel's ability to deliver silicon convergence, integrate hardware and software programmability

US based programmable logic application provider Altera has signed a deal with Intel to manufacture field-programmable gate array (FPGA) based on Intel's 14nm tri-gate transistor technology.

The FPGAs will be used in the ultra high-performance systems of military, wireline communications, cloud networking, compute and storage applications.

The agreement will allow Altera to include 14nm technology to the previously announced 20 nm technologies, to expand its product portfolio with better performance, bandwidth and power efficiency.

Altera president, CEO and chairman John Daane said: "Altera's FPGAs using Intel 14 nm technology will enable customers to design with the most advanced, highest-performing FPGAs in the industry."

Intel chief operating officer Brian Krzanich said, "Next-generation products from Altera require the highest performance and most power-efficient technology available, and Intel is well positioned to provide the most advanced offerings."

The field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is a semiconductor device that can be programmed after manufacturing.
