Replacement for obsolete FPGA

Does anyone have a recommended replacement for a discontinued FPGA? We use the Intel / Altera EPF10K50EQC208-1. Would need the same package, of course.

So are you looking for a replacement device to just 'drop in' to an existing circuit design, with no changes in the design? IE, it must be footprint compatible.

Or a replacement device with the same, or more, of equivalent capability I/Os? And you are willing to change the PCB to accommodate it.

Why the (hard) requirement for the same package?

Coding changes would be OK. But a different package would require a board spin, which takes time and money, of course. This is a low-volume product for us, so we're looking to minimize costs.

Hi Gary,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Community.

 

Please note that EPF10K50EQC208-1 is a discontinued product with NO replacement of the device. However, we can suggest you to get a new package that has almost the same logic element and of course it need to be design again.

Stratix 10: OPN 10M08SCF256C7G

Hi Gary,

 

Sorry to let you know that there is no replacement for the OPN EPF10K50EQC208-1. You may find the PDN details as the link provided:

For new design application, you can consider newest Stratix series device families:
