I was looking for a cheap dev board for the Altera/Intel MAX 10 parts. There's an Altera branded 10M50 board for about $200 with a mass of stuff on it but I don't usually find very complex dev boards to be helpful. I'm interested in the MAX10 - not a whole load of other stuff. They do have a very cheap and commendably simple 10M08 board ($49 but I didn't find that in time !). I did find the MAXimator board and bought one - it arrived quickly and without any problems, cost was £58.15 (actua ...
This is the project I've been working on recently. Just assembled the first prototype. I've only populated 2 of the 8 analogue input sections, some values in filters may change and I don't need to waste expensive parts by building all 8 channels just yet. The signals go into an 8 channel simultaneous sampling 24 bit ADC which will run at about 256k samples per channel per second. The FPGA, an Altera MAX10M16, controls the ADC and does the heavy digital signal processing work. It has a little 128 ...
Following the mega useful suggestion from aventuri about the existence of this board I bought one because I couldn't find any other way to get hold of a Lattice UP5k FPGA chip in 48 pin QFN.   This is an interesting FPGA in that it has 5k LUTs, the usual block RAM (15kbytes), 4 single port RAMs totaling 128kbytes and 8 16 bit wide multipliers, all this in a 48 pin prototype friendly QFN package and quite cheap - if only anyone had them in stock.   The UPduino board has A UP5k, an abs ...
There's been quite  a lot of talk in the FPGA group about cheap ways to get started so a couple of weeks ago I decided to forsake the professional setup I use for real work and try one of the cheapest routes I could find. The idea was to try something as general purpose as possible and to keep clear of as much proprietary hardware and software as possible. That basically means using a simple board with the FPGA and very little else on it and using the FPGA manufacturer's free software.  ...
