Cyclone® IV GX Starter Board

Cyclone® IV GX Starter Board

Intel®'s Cyclone® IV GX transceiver starter board provides a hardware platform for developing and prototyping low-power, high-volume, feature-rich designs, as well as to demonstrate the Cyclone IV GX device's on-chip memory, embedded multipliers, and the Nios® II embedded soft processor. The board provides peripherals and memory interfaces to facilitate the development of the Cyclone IV GX transceiver designs.

The Cyclone IV GX transceiver starter board is especially suitable for cost-sensitive applications that require high-speed transceivers and power integrity solutions.

For more information on the Cyclone IV device family, refer to the Cyclone IV Device Handbook

This kit will enable a user to:
  • Develop your FPGA design for cost-sensitive applications
  • Measure the FPGA's low power consumption
  • Test signal quality of the FPGA transceiver I/Os (up to 2.5 Gbps)
  • Develop and test PCI Express® (PCIe®) 1.0 endpoint x1 lane designs (~250-MBps transfer rate)
Features
  • Cyclone IV GX EP4CGX15BF14 FPGA in the 169-pin FineLine BGA (FBGA) package
  • On-board USB-Blaster for use with the Quartus® II Programmer
  • JTAG header for external USB-Blaster with the Quartus II Programmer
  • USB 2.0
  • On-Board clocking circuitry
