Zuken hasannounced the availability of free footprint data for Altera Corporation's recently announced low-cost Cyclone III FPGA family.
Zuken's CR-5000 enterprise wide design solution users can download the Cyclone III footprint design templates, eliminating the task of manually entering footprint data into their CR-5000 libraries.
"At Zuken we see it as an important objective to do everything we can to facilitate the adoption of new technology for our customers. Through our partnership with Altera, we are continuing to provide the integration needed within the electronics industry for our customers to remain competitive in the marketplace," said Werner Rissiek, Zuken General Manager Engineering Europe.
The Cyclone III family is Altera's third-generation of low-cost FPGAs offering lower power with greater logic, memory, and multiplier densities than previous generations. The availability of the footprint data as a free download from Zuken is another means to enable the efficient adoption of this new technology.
