Product Information

Quartus II Quartus II - Software plays an important role in helping you effectively address your resource and design constraints. There are 100,000s of users who trust and use the Quartus II software to leverage its productivity tools and features to speed up the FPGA development process. Altera’s extensive EDA partner support and suite of training resources further improves your productivity and starts you off on the right track.
Qsys Qsys - Qsys is the next-generation system integration tool. This tool saves significant time and efforts in the FPGA design process by automatically generating interconnect logic to connect intellectual property (IP) functions and subsystems.
DSP Builder DSP Builder - Altera’s DSP Builder technology allows you to go from system definition/simulation using the industry-standard The MathWorks/Simulink tools to system implementation in a matter of minutes.
NIOS II Nios® II - The Nios II Embedded Design Suite (EDS) is a comprehensive development package for Nios II software design. The Nios II EDS contains not just development tools, but also software, device drivers, bare metal Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) library, a commercial grade network stack software and evaluation version of a real time operating system.
OpenCore Plus OpenCore Plus - Altera offers a broad portfolio of easy-to-use IP cores. These IP cores are high-quality “building blocks” that you can drop into your system designs, avoiding the time-consuming task of creating complete designs from scratch. Easy-to-use, pre-verified, and configurable, Altera® IP cores are optimized for the latest Altera devices and are fully supported in Quartus® II design software.
ModelSim ModelSim - Shorten your FPGA verification time by using the ModelSim-Altera software in your FPGA Design Flow. ModelSim-Altera software (view full size screenshot) supports behavioral and gate-level simulations, including VHDL or Verilog test benches, for all Altera devices.
