Altera / Intel Cyclone® IV GX FPGA Development Kit

Altera Cyclone® IV GX FPGA Development Kit provides a comprehensive, best-in-class design environment to develop low-cost and low-power FPGA system-level designs quickly. This kit helps to shorten your product's development cycle so that you can meet your product's time-to-market and production milestones. With this platform, you can develop and test PCI Express® Gen1 x1, x2, x4 endpoint designs using the Cyclone IV GX PCI Express hard intellectual property (IP) PCI-SIG®-compliant board.

Users can also develop and test multi-lane protocol bridging designs using onboard DDR2 memory and, through its expansion capability, the high-speed mezzanine card (HSMC) connectors. Over 30 different HSMCs are available through Altera partners and supporting protocols such as CPRI, SATA, and SDI. Come up to speed quickly with your FPGA design by reusing the example designs provided by the kit's Board Test System. The kit's host board can be the design model for your product's low-cost and low-power board.
