The DSP Development Kit, Stratix® III Edition delivers a complete digital signal processing (DSP) development environment. The kit facilitates the entire design process from design conception through hardware implementation. The DSP Development Kit, Stratix III Edition includes the Stratix III FPGA development board, a data conversion high-speed mezzanine card (HSMC), MATLAB/Simulink evaluation software, power supplies, and cables. For further DSP based design productivity, the DSP Builder development tool is available separately.
Table 1 provides the ordering code and pricing information for the DSP Development Kit, Stratix III Edition.

Altera developed the specification for the HSMC, which is based on the Samtec mechanical connector, to define and standardize the interface between optional daughter cards and host boards. This specification outlines both the electrical and mechanical properties of the interface between daughter card and host. You can also create your own HSMC interface-compatible daughter cards.
