|Intellectual Property (IP) Cores||Reference Designs|
Designers need fast access to a wide variety of IP blocks of differing complexity and performance, from basic arithmetic blocks to transceivers, protocol interfaces, memory controllers, microprocessors, and signal processing. Altera and its strategic IP partners offer a broad portfolio of off-the-shelf, configurable IP cores optimized for Altera® devices. Altera IP is delivered and installed with our Quartus® II design software. OpenCore Plus IP evaluation enables fast acquisition, evaluation, and hardware testing of IPs. All of this available without the need for a license key and before even paying a penny. Partner IP can be requested directly from this website. Use the technology links in the left-hand navigation or the search box below to find available Altera and Partner IP for your next design.
Reference designs enable shorter design cycles and higher productivity by serving as a technical sub-system or system blueprint, often for targeted applications. Altera and its partners develop and deliver reference designs that solve complex system design problems, whether it's a shortage of designers or shrinking budgets, Altera and partners can help. These reference designs are downloadable directly from this website or can be requested using the automated request form (see left hand navigator - click on "Request IP").
