Information :

The CMC1003 module allows implementation of general logic functions and/or Altera® Nios II processor operation in a compact form factor module. The module provides the following circuits to support an FPGA based controller:

  • Altera EP4CE55 FPGA, optional 4CE115 available
  • 64M x 16 DDR-2 SDRAM
  • EPCS64 FPGA serial loader (FPGA and Nios II boot)
  • USB 2.0 Peripheral Port (High speed operation)

The CMC1003 kit includes an FPGA programmer and power supply, and provides all the hardware items which are necessary to start designing with and evaluating the powerful features of Altera® Cyclone IV FPGA devices.
