MAX 10 FPGA Evaluation Kit

The Altera® MAX® 10 FPGA Evaluation Kit is intended as a "no frills", entry-level board for evaluation of the MAX 10 FPGA technology.

With this evaluation board, you can:

  • Develop designs for the 10M08S, 144-EQFP FPGA
  • Measure FPGA power (VCC_CORE and VCC_IO)
  • Bridge between different I/O voltages (adjustable VCC_IO on Bank 8)
  • Read and write to the FPGA’s NOR flash memory
  • Use the FPGA’s analog-to-digital converter embedded block to measure incoming analog signals
  • Interface to external functions or devices via Arduino UNO R3 connectors or through-hole vias
  • Reuse the kit’s PCB board and schematic as a model for your design
