What's On Board

 EP2C8Q208C8N core board on board resource
  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

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