More info

FPGA development board designed for ALTERA Cyclone IV series, features the EP4CE10 onboard, and integrates various standard interfaces, pretty easy for peripheral expansions.

EP4CE10 development board

Overview

OpenEP4CE10-C is an FPGA development board that consists of the mother board DVK600 and the FPGA core board CoreEP4CE10.

OpenEP4CE10-C supports further expansion with various optional accessory boards for specific application. The modular and open design makes it the ideal for starting application development with ALTERA Cyclone IV series FPGA devices. OpenEP4CE10-C enables you to start your design with the Nios II processor easily and quickly.


What's on the mother board

FPGA CPLD development board on board resource

  1. FPGA CPLD core board connector: for easily connecting core boards which integrate an FPGA CPLD chip onboard
  2. 8I/Os_1 interface, for connecting accessory boards/modules
  3. 8I/Os_2 interface, for connecting accessory boards/modules
  4. 16I/Os_1 interface, for connecting accessory boards/modules
  5. 16I/Os_2 interface, for connecting accessory boards/modules
  6. 32I/Os_1 interface, for connecting accessory boards/modules
  7. 32I/Os_2 interface, for connecting accessory boards/modules
  8. 32I/Os_3 interface, for connecting accessory boards/modules

All the I/O interfaces above:

  • capable of being simulated as USART, I2C, SPI, PS/2, etc.
  • capable of driving devices such as FRAM, FLASH, USB, Ethernet, etc.
  1. SDRAM interface
    • for connecting SDRAM accessory board
    • also works as FPGA CPLD pins expansion connectors
  2. LCD interface, for connecting LCD22, LCD12864, LCD1602
  3. ONE-WIRE interface: easily connects to ONE-WIRE devices (TO-92 package), such as temperature sensor (DS18B20), electronic registration number (DS2401), etc.
  4. 5V DC jack
  5. Joystick: five positions
  6. Buzzer
  7. Potentiometer: for LCD22 backlight adjustment, or LCD12864, LCD1602 contrast adjustment
  8. Power switch
  9. Buzzer jumper
  10. ONE-WIRE jumper
  11. Joystick jumper

For jumpers 17-19:

  • short the jumper to connect to I/Os used in example code
  • open the jumper to connect to other custom pins via jumper wires

The DVK600 supports a wide range of different core boards, therefore, some of the interfaces may be Not-Connected and useless while connecting to certain core board. For instance, while connecting to Core3S500E/CoreEP2C8, the '⑧ 32I/Os_3' is Not-Connected.

What's on the CoreEP4CE10

EP4CE10E22C8N core board on board resource

    • I/Os: 164
    • LEs: 10K
    • RAM: 414kb
    • PLLs: 2
    • Debugging/Programming: supports JTAG
  2. AMS1117-3.3 (on bottom side), 3.3V voltage regulator
  3. AMS1117-2.5 (on bottom side), 2.5V voltage regulator
  4. AMS1117-1.2 (on bottom side), 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. 50M active crystal
  11. JTAG interface: for debugging/programming
  12. FPGA pins expander, VCC, GND and all the I/O ports are accessible on expansion connectors for further expansion
