Pleora Technologies, a provider of networked video connectivity solutions, has joined the Altera Megafunction Partners Program (AMPP).

Under AMPP, Altera forms partnerships with preferred third-party companies that develop IP (intellectual property) packages for its FPGAs (field-programmable gate arrays). Products offered by AMPP partners are promoted by Altera through its broad marketing and sales channel, which reaches thousands of customers worldwide.

Through the partnership, Altera customers will get direct access to Pleora's iPORT NTx-Pro IP package, a portfolio of firmware, hardware, software, and design review services. The package uses Altera's Cyclone III FPGAs to deliver customised solutions for real-time networked video connectivity over standard Ethernet networks.

'As an Altera AMPP partner, Pleora will have a much higher profile with innovative OEMs and systems integrators in the early stages of the design cycle,' said Rob Lee, vice president of marketing and sales, Pleora Technologies.

'Pleora has been designing IP cores for video connectivity for our FPGAs since 2002,' said Jim Smith, director of Altera Professional Services, Altera. 'Altera FPGA customers looking for third-party video connectivity solutions will now be able to shorten their design cycle significantly by having direct access to Pleora's knowledge, experience, and IP.'

Pleora's iPORT NTx-Pro IP package includes an evaluation kit, an IP core, an HDL (hardware description language) reference design for the Cyclone III FPGA, and a board reference design.
