Intel® FPGA Intellectual Property

The Intel® FPGA Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio covers a wide variety of applications with their combination of soft and hardened IP cores along with reference designs. Our IP partners (via Intel Partner Alliance) contribute to this portfolio and provide alternative solutions.

Intel® FPGA Intellectual Property

Maximize Performance and Productivity with Intel and Partner IP Portfolio

The Intel FPGA Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio includes a unique combination of soft and hardened IP cores along with reference designs to complement your application’s performance and IP strategies. On top of that, our straightforward selection of development kits give you the flexibility to test multiple types of platforms using a single board.

Intel also simplified the IP evaluation process with a no-hassle licensing Intel FPGA IP Evaluation Mode feature. In addition, Intel provides dynamically generated design examples that use your custom IP configuration and create an out-of-the-box hardware test platform to enable functionality and performance verification on hardware. All of these are available at your fingertips by simply downloading the Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Software.
