Altera EP4C FPGA Training Kit

FPGA motherboard with mounted EP4C FPGA and expansion ports, USB Blaster debugger and programmer and accessory package A (Touch screen, USB, Ethernet, memory etc). Comes with free development software (Quartus II, NIOS II etc.), sample code (Verilog, VHDL and NIOS II C), schematics and documentation.

Altera EP4C FPGA NIOS II board

Simple way to get started with Altera FPGA. The main board has expansion ports for a range of peripherals in package A and a core board mounting an Altera EP4CE10 FPGA.

Kit includes a programmer and debugger, USB Blaster

Simple Expansion

The main board has connections for your own peripherals or a wide range of accessory boards. These just plug-in to the main board making this a truly modular system. Demo (Verilog | VHDL | NIOS) Code is available for all peripherals, making ideal for Nios II development.
