The low-cost Cyclone® II FPGA Starter Development Kit is ideal if you want to evaluate Intel's high-performance, low-power, 90-nm technology. By using this starter development kit, you will see 60 percent (on average) higher performance and 50 percent (on average) lower power than competing 90-nm, low-cost FPGAs. Several reference designs and demonstrations included in the kit, make for a quick "out-of-the-box" evaulation experience.
The Cyclone II FPGA Starter Development Kit includes the following:
- Intel's easy-to-use Quartus® II design software (web edition)
- 32-bit Nios® II embedded software intellectual property (IP) core (web edition)
- Complete documentation
- Cables and power supply.
Cyclone II FPGAs are perfectly suited as an embedded processor or microcontroller when combined with Intel's 32-bit Nios II embedded processor IP cores. You can add many other functions to the FPGA with additional IP cores available from Altera and its partners.
Additional daughtercards, which plug into the Cyclone II FPGA Starter Development Kit, are available for purchase.
