FPGAs Meet AQEC Specs

The Stratix and Cyclone FPGAs now lay claim to being the first such devices to receive compliance certification for the Aerospace Qualified Electronic Components (AQEC) specification GEIA-STD-0002-01. The specification provides a formal compliance process to ensure users that commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components meet the low-risk, high-reliability needs of the military and aerospace electronics market. Stratix II and Cyclone II FPGAs, and MAX II CPLDs are currently in the process of obtaining AQEC certification. ALTERA CORP., San Jose, CA. (408) 544-7000.
