Its products also include Stratix series high-end, system-level FPGAs; SoC FPGAs; Arria series mid-range FPGAs; Cyclone Series FPGAs; and MAX series CPLDs. In addition, the company provides intellectual property cores, which are pre-verified building blocks that execute system-level functions; and development tools that primarily include the Quartus II software for design entry, design compilation, design verification, and device programming. It serves various customers in the telecom and wireless, industrial automation, military and automotive, networking, and computer and storage, and other vertical markets. The company markets its products in the Americas, the Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Japan through a network of distributors, independent sales representatives, and direct sales personnel.
