Altera Corp. launches the FPGA Design Services Network (DSN) programme that aids in accelerating FPGA design productivity and innovation through a global network of Altera-qualified design experts.

With market windows continuing to shrink and system designs becoming more complex, the DSN programme is aimed at helping customers find the right expertise to design and develop products using Altera technology.

Today, companies in a wide variety of markets are faced with competitive pressures to increase design performance and reduce development schedules with fewer engineering resources. As designs become increasingly complex and integrated, companies require different types of design and development expertise to complete their designs. Through the launch of the Design Services Network, Altera is helping customers accelerate product design and development through access to certified design partners with the experience and training across a wide range of Altera devices, tools, IP and reference designs.

The Design Services Network evolved out of Altera's existing Certified Design Centre (CDC) and Altera Consultants Alliance Programme (ACAP) which collectively had 144 members in 33 countries. By combining these programmes into a single programme, Altera customers can more easily identify and engage with design service providers based on their specific project needs. Further, the programme gives members streamlined access to Altera tools, IP, development kits and product knowledge to offer customers more efficient support. The programme is expanding globally to provide customers with more timely and local design support for a range of services from feasibility studies and device selection to architecture development and system-level product design.

Each DSN member goes through a qualification process to ensure they have experience designing with Altera products, tools and IP, as well as differentiated application or technology expertise before they are invited to join the programme.
