Stratix II devices, Altera’s next-generation high-density field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), are based on award-winning Stratix device architecture. Building on the innovations that made Stratix FPGAs an instant success, Stratix II devices provide new and enhanced features that significantly improve device performance and resource utilization.

This white paper explains the differences between Stratix II and Stratix features. For detailed descriptions of each feature, see the Stratix II Device Handbook, Stratix Device Handbook, and related documentation at
