Default Stratix II - Cyclone II GATE COUNT

Hi,

Is there an Altera application to count the number of equivalent gates
for Logic Elements, Memory, DSP blocks, PLL etc... ?

Thanks...

I don't find this information..

Here is the PR-article where they announce to stop comparing to
gates...

Altera: Out with Gate Counts, In with Logic Elements
http://www.altera.com/corporate/news...asurement.html

Altera devices are Macrocells, Logic Elements or Adaptive Logic
Modules. The combinatorial complexity of the primitive elements vary
and they hold 1, 1 or 2 bits in the register. So depending on your
register count or combinatorial complexity you end up with a specific
device, where from my experience the I/O pin, OnChip memory or DSP
Block count is leading the device choiche.

Greatings, Karl.
