Business description: Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) is the world's pioneer in system-on-a-programmable-chip (SOPC) solutions. Combining programmable logic technology with software tools, intellectual property, and technical services. By partnering even more closely with our customers to develop new products and tools, Altera launched three new FPGA families in 2002—the high-density Stratix™ family, low-cost Cyclone™ devices for high-volume designs, and Stratix GX devices with embedded transceivers. These products have had overwhelmingly broad acceptance in traditional markets and have quickly found homes in many new applications. Altera's new product portfolio, combined with the Nios® soft processors, a library of IP cores for customer differentiation, and the easy-to-use Quartus® II design software comprise Altera's SOPC arsenal, offering our customers full and risk-free design flexibility with maximum return on their investment.
