The folks at Altera have announced that their Arria GX family of low-cost, transceiver-equipped FPGAs has received a distinguishing industry recognition from the EN-Genius Network (www.en-genius.net).
It seems that Arria GX FPGAs received the EN-Genius Network's annual "Product of the Year" award for the "Best Value High-Performance FPGA." Winners were selected in 29 different product categories from the hundreds of products reviewed in 2007 by EN-Genius.
"Product of the Year awards are based on the personal opinion of the EN-Genius editorial staff," said EN-Genius editor-in-chief Paul McGoldrick. "We believe these award-winning products will make significant contributions to the bottom line numbers for the companies involved based on their strong technical merit, design innovation and marketability."
