Description: An Altera FPGA board with SparkFun's approach to minimal design where 'less is better'. The board brings out all 208 pins of the Altera Cyclone II FPGA. The board includes a JTAG interface for programming which may be removed. It also includes a 10 pin .1" header which provides access to each voltage input.
To get started all you need to do is download the free Quartus II Web Edition software from the Altera website, a programming cable (like our Altera Compatible Programmer), and a power supply. Make sure to read the Altera Cyclone II datasheet before going too crazy with the voltage inputs!
