R 1,587.46
FPGA core board, features the ALTERA Cyclone II chip EP2C8Q208C8N onboard

Overview
CoreEP2C8 is an FPGA core board that features an EP2C8Q208C8N device onboard, supports further expansion.
1. Onboard Serial Configuration Device EPCS16SI8N
2. Integrated FPGA basic circuit, such as clock circuit
3. Onboard nCONFIG button, RESET button, 4 x LEDs
4. All the I/O ports are accessible on the pin headers
5. Onboard JTAG debugging/programming interface
6. 2.0mm header pitch design, suitable for being plugged-in your application system

What is On Board
1. EP2C8Q208C8N: The ALTERA Cyclone II FPGA device which features:
- Operating Frequency: 50MHz
- Operating Voltage: 1.15V?3.465V
- Package: QFP208
- I/Os: 138
- LEs: 8K
- RAM: 165kb
- PLLs: 2
- Debugging/Programming: supports JTAG
2. AMS1117-3.3, 3.3V voltage regulator
3. AMS1117-1.2, 1.2V voltage regulator
4. EPCS16, onboard serial FLASH memory, for storing code
5. Power indicator
6. LEDs
7. Reset button
8. nCONFIG button: for re-configuring the FPGA chip, the equivalent of power reseting
9. 50M active crystal oscillator
10. JTAG interface: for debugging/programming
11. FPGA pins expander, VCC, GND and all the I/O ports are accessible on expansion connectors for further expansion

Note
1. CoreEP2C8 provides JTAG debugging interface, yet does NOT integrate any debugging function, a debugger is required.
2. Mother board and programmer/debugger in the photos are NOT included in the price.

Development Resources
1. Related software (Quaters II, NIOS II etc.)
2. Demo code (Verilog, VHDL, NIOS II C)
3. Schematic (PDF)
4. FPGA development documentations
