Embedded Systems Development Kit Cyclone III FPGA Edition

Altera Corp. has released the Embedded Systems Development Kit Cyclone III FPGA Edition, a comprehensive platform that accelerates the prototyping and development of FPGA-based embedded systems.

This multiboard development kit features a Cyclone III EP3C120 device, a highest density, low-cost FPGA currently shipping and combines a robust set of on-board memories, I/O interfaces, peripherals and pre-built reference designs. With the recent release of Wind River Linux support for Altera's Nios II soft processor, designers can use this hardware platform as a basis for developing embedded Linux designs.

Altera's Embedded Systems Development Kit, Cyclone III FPGA Edition contains a selection of pre-built processor systems, intellectual property (IP), OS and software applications. Users create their FPGA-based embedded system by selecting from a multitude of on-board example processor systems, demonstration designs and reference designs.

The Embedded Systems Development Kit, Cyclone III Edition is a three-board solution that includes a Cyclone III FPGA development board, featuring two high-speed mezzanine connectors (HSMCs), an LCD multimedia HSMC board and a multipurpose HSMC card. The Cyclone III FPGA development board features an EP3C120F780 FPGA, 256Mbyte of dual-channel DDR2 SDRAM with ECC, 8Mbyte of pseudo SRAM, 64Mbyte of flash and a 10/100/1000 Ethernet communication port. The development kit includes Altera's complete design suite DVD featuring the Quartus II Web Edition design software, ModelSim-Altera Starter Edition, the Nios II embedded design suite and Altera's MegaCore IP library.

The Embedded Systems Development Kit, Cyclone III FPGA Edition is available through Altera's online store at www.altera.com/esdk. Pricing for the development kit is $1,995. To see Altera's complete portfolio of development kits, visit www.altera.com/devkits.
