- Windows XP SP2 32-bit
- Windows XP SP2 64-bit

If you are using a more recent version of the Quartus® II software, you will need to have a full installation of the Quartus II software versions 9.1 or 9.1SP2 when using development kit installation versions 9.1.0 or 9.1.2. This is required since there is a JTAG DLL that requires the Quartus II software version 9.1 or 9.1SP2 to be installed in order to use the Signal Integrity Demo GUI.
