San Jose, CA - April 30, 2001 - Altera Corp. launched the third component to its design services strategy today with the unveiling of the Certified Design Center (CDC) partnership program.
As the migration of ASIC designs moves toward programmable logic, the CDC program brings system-on-a-chip (SOC) designers into the world of system-on-a-programmable-chip (SOPC) applications, the company said.
The CDC program provides the thousands of Altera customers looking to integrate system level designs into programmable logic solutions, access to the SOC design expertise often required in today's most complex SOPC applications.
Tality Corp., the largest global provider of product development outsourcing, including IP and engineering services to the communications market, joins Zaiq Technologies, based in North America, and Barco Silex, El Camino GmbH, Excel Consultants, Plextek, Reflex Consulting, and Sci-Worx, based in Europe, as founding CDC members.
The network of SOC ASIC design experts contained in the CDC program will work in conjunction with Altera's existing Altera Consultants Alliance Program (ACAP), which consists of independent consultants with focused technical expertise. Both of these partnership programs complement Altera's recent acquisition of Northwest Logic, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Altera, which offers system level design services with a team of Altera experts.
