    The P0082 DE0-Nano boardP0082 DE0-Nano board introduces a compact-sized FPGA development platform suited for to a wide range of portable design projects, such as robots and mobile projects. The DE0-Nano is ideal for use with embedded soft processors, it features a powerful 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 8-channel 12-bit A/D converter, and it also features an 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 pushbuttons, 8 user LEDs and a set of 4 dip-switches.


    This platform allows user:

    • To extend designs beyond the DE0-Nano board with two external general-purpose I/O (GPIO) headers
    • To handle larger data storage and frame buffering with onboard memory devices including SDRAM and EEPROM
    • Provides enhanced user peripheral with LEDs and push buttons
    • Small and lightweight
    • Re-configurable without requiring superfluous hardware
    • Suitable for mobile designs where portable power is crucial, as it provides three power scheme options including a USB Mini-AB port, 2-pin external power header, and two DC 5-V pins


    Key Applications: Broadcast, Consumer, Industrial, Wireless, Wireline.
