Which FPGA's nearing End Of Life?

Hello, I would like to ask the community members which of the following FPGAs are likely to reach "End of Life" status within the next year:

Cyclone V

Arria V

Max 10

 

I'm doing a new design and do not want to pick an FPGA that will go End of Life as I hit production.

 

Thanks,

Joe

Hi Joe,

 

The Cyclone V, Arria V, Max 10 devices were just introduced in recent years and they are still recommended for new design. The life cycles of these devices are depending on its ordering volume. You can subscribe to our customer notification mailing list as below so that you can be notified when any of Intel FPGA going to be discontinued:

Chia,

 

Hello, I remember Quartus 10 supported the Cyclone V and Quartus 12 supporting the Arria V and Quartus 15 supporting the Max 10. Maybe the Max 10 is recent years but the other two are quite some time ago. I would expect the Cyclone V will go first.

 

Thanks,

Joe
