Altera updates to Altium Hobart vault

The Hobart Content Center is pleased to announce another update to the Altium Hobart Vault with the release of four additional families for Altera.

The following Altera families have been released to the Hobart Vault:


The MAX V is a new family of low-power and low-cost CPLDs that offer high density and more I/Os per footprint, compared with many other CPLDs. The family offers features like on-chip flash storage, internal oscillator and memory functionality, and are particularly suited for applications such as I/O expansion, bus and protocol bridging, power monitoring and control, FPGA configuration, and analog IC interface.

This release of five components for MAX V is an initial offering based on available devices. The full release will follow soon.


EPC is a family of enhanced configuration devices. These are single-device, high-speed, advanced configuration solutions for very high-density FPGAs, including all the current generation families available in the Hobart Vault. The EPCS serial configuration devices are flash memory components with a serial interface that can store configuration data for FPGAs that support active serial configuration, and reload the data to the device upon power-up or reconfiguration.

This release includes EPCS128 (previously not supported), among other configuration devices.


Cyclone FPGAs were first released back in 2003. The Cyclone series is designed as a low-cost FPGA solution. Now, into its 5th generation (soon to be released to the vault), this is the original offering of the Cyclone FPGA family that contains all the devices still available in the market today.

All these new components are now available in the Altium Hobart Vault.

AltiumLive Subscribers can use these components by connecting to the Vault directly from Altium Designer 10 using their AltiumLive credentials, or by browsing to the AltiumLive Design Content area and selecting the Altium Hobart Vault.
