Altera launches new University Program FPGA development board
March 17, 2011 // Julien Happich
In collaboration with Altera’s University Program, Terasic Technologies has announced the release of Altera’s newest University Program FPGA development board, the DE0-Nano. Measuring just 49x75.2mm and weighing about 40 grams, the DE0-Nano board is well-suited to a wide range of portable design projects, such as robotics applications.
The DE0-Nano is suitable for use with embedded soft processors, it features an Altera Cyclone IV FPGA (with 22,320 logic elements), 32 MB of SDRAM, 2 Kb EEPROM, and a 16 Mb serial configuration memory device. For connecting to real-world sensors the DE0-Nano includes a National Semiconductor 8-channel 12-bit A/D converter, and it also features an Analog Devices 13-bit, 3-axis accelerometer device.
The DE0-Nano board includes a built-in USB Blaster for FPGA programming, and the board can be powered either from this USB port or by an external power source. The board includes expansion headers that can be used to attach various Terasic daughter cards or other devices, such as motors and actuators.
Inputs and outputs include 2 push-buttons, 8 user LEDs and a set of 4 dip-switches. In addition to the hardware, Terasic Technologies also provides all source code for every component on board that enables users to quickly and easily gain an understanding of the basic design concepts.
