  4. AMS1117-1.2, 1.2V voltage regulator
  5. EPCS16, onboard serial FLASH memory, for storing code
  6. Power indicator
  7. LEDs
  8. Reset button
  9. nCONFIG button: for re-configuring the FPGA chip, the equivalent of power reseting
  10. Power switch
  11. 50M active crystal oscillator
  12. 5V DC jack
  13. JTAG interface: for debugging/programming
  14. FPGA pins expander, VCC, GND and all the I/O ports are accessible on expansion connectors for further expansion
  15. LED jumpers, short the jumpers to drive the LEDs

CoreEP3C5 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.
