Try maxim, freescale, catalyst, linear system, and lots of others for those kind of IC, they'r nice and will send you any ic you need as long as your country is not banned or being embargo by the Us gov.
I doubt that they will give away fpga IC because it is so expensive. About the company's name... made up the name. or just give your campus name instead. They will be more willing to give if you are a university student.
