Get Started Quickly with the $79 DE0-Nano Development Board

Start your next FPGA design quickly with the $79 DE0-Nano development board. This compact board (49 mm x 75 mm) is ready for use right out of the box, and comes with a USB mini-B cable, software, and quick start guide. When you buy a DE0-Nano board, you’ll get four reference designs in a CD-ROM to get you up and running:

• PWM “Breathing” LED demo
• Analog to Digital Conversion demo
• 3-Axis Accelerometer demo
• Camera and LCD demo

Featuring a low-cost Cyclone® IV FPGA, the DE0-Nano development board is perfect for developing embedded soft processors with the Nios® II processor. Its 3-axis accelerometer allows you to develop designs for sensing applications. In addition, for portable designs that require low power, the DE0-Nano board provides three power scheme options – a USB mini-AB port, a two-pin external power header, and two DC 5-V pins.

The DE0-Nano board is sold by Terasic for only $79.
