                      Altera Corp was founded in 1983 and reincorporated in the State of Delaware in 1997. Altera is a global semiconductor company. The Company designs, manufactures, and markets high-performance, high-density programmable logic devices, ...moreor PLDs, HardCopy ASIC devices, pre-defined design building blocks known as intellectual property (‘IP’) cores, and associated development tools. Its PLDs, which consist of field-programmable gate arrays, or FPGAs, and complex programmable logic devices, or CPLDs, are semiconductor integrated circuits that are manufactured as standard chips that its customers program to perform desired logic functions within their electronic systems. With its HardCopy devices, the Company offers its customers a migration path from a PLD to a low-cost, high-volume, non-programmable implem...moreentation of their designs. Its customers could license IP cores from the Company for implementation of standard functions in their PLD designs. Customers develop, compile, and verify their PLD designs, and then program their designs into its PLDs using its proprietary development software, which operates on personal computers and engineering workstations. It serves over 13,000 customers within the Telecom and Wireless, Industrial Automation, Military and Automotive, Networking, Computer and Storage, and Other vertical markets. The Other vertical market includes sub-markets of broadcast, consumer, medical and test. The Company is first suppliers of complementary metal oxide semiconductor (‘CMOS’) PLDs. Its broad range of PLDs offer unique features as well as differing densities and performance specifications, and serve a range of customers. Its products consist primarily of devices, IP cores, and proprietary development tools. Its devices fall into the following four categories, spanning multiple architectures and families with numerous product options: FPGAs; CPLDs; HardCopy ASICs; and Configuration devices that store the programming code for its FPGAs. Its Stratix® product families are built using advanced CMOS process technology and address a broad range of applications requiring system integration across all its markets. Its Arria® product families are built using advanced CMOS process technology and enable a simplified transceiver-based design for applications requiring high-performance data transfer protocols. The Company’s Cyclone® product families are built using advanced CMOS process technology and bring programmable flexibility to cost-sensitive applications in all its markets. Its MAX® families are instant-on, non-volatile CPLDs that are used in general purpose and portable designs for a broad range of electronics equipment. Its HardCopy ASICs offer customers a migration path from high density FPGA families to a low-cost ASIC for high-volume production. Semiconductor companies with whom the Company competes include Analog Devices Inc., Applied Micro Circuits Corporation, Avago Technologies, Broadcom Corporation, Freescale Semiconductor Inc., International Business Machines Corporation, Intel Corporation, Linear Technology Corporation, Marvell Technology Group, Ltd., Maxim Integrated Products Inc., Microchip Technology Inc., Nvidia Corporation, ST Microelectronics, Texas Instruments Inc., Toshiba Semiconductor Company and Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation.lessless
