"Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) is a major manufacturer of high-end PLDs (programmable logic devices). The company invented the first reprogrammable logic device in 1984[1]. PLDs can be reprogrammed during the design cycle as well as in the field to perform multiple functions, and they support a fairly fast design process. Altera's main products are the Cyclone, Arria GX and Stratix series of FPGAs (field-programmable gate arrays), the MAX series of CPLDs (complex programmable logic devices), the HardCopy series of ASICs (ASIC) and Quartus II software.

The Stratix series FPGAs are larger, faster devices, with more features than the Cyclone series devices. They also cost more. The GX parts contain dedicated high-speed serial transceivers.

The Cyclone and Arria series FPGAs are lower cost, smaller devices meant for less demanding applications. Arria series FPGAs are also available with integrated transceivers." (visit link)
