SAN JOSE  and  SANTA CLARA, Calif.,  Feb. 25, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Altera
Corporation  and  Intel Corporation  today announced that the companies have
entered into an agreement for the future manufacture of Altera FPGAs on Intel's
14 nm tri-gate transistor technology. These next-generation products, which
target ultra high-performance systems for military, wireline communications,
cloud networking, and compute and storage applications, will enable breakthrough
levels of performance and power efficiencies not otherwise possible.   



"Altera's FPGAs using Intel 14 nm technology will enable customers to design
with the most advanced, highest-performing FPGAs in the industry," said  John
Daane, president, CEO and chairman of Altera. "In addition, Altera gains a
tremendous competitive advantage at the high end in that we are the only major
FPGA company with access to this technology."

Altera's next-generation products will now include 14 nm, in addition to
previously announced 20 nm technologies, extending the company's tailored
product portfolio that meets myriad customer needs for performance, bandwidth
and power efficiency across diverse end applications.    

"We look forward to collaborating with Altera on manufacturing leading-edge
FPGAs, leveraging Intel's leadership in process technology," said  Brian
Krzanich, chief operating officer, Intel.  "Next-generation products from Altera
require the highest performance and most power-efficient technology available,
and Intel is well positioned to provide the most advanced offerings."

Adding this world-class manufacturer to Altera's strong foundation of
leading-edge suppliers and partners furthers the company's ability to deliver on
the promise of silicon convergence; to integrate hardware and software
