The CycloneII FPGA Nios2 uClinux Development Kit is comprised of tow parts , one is the minimal FPGA working system board , and the other is daughter card with rich peripherals, tow boards are connected by Pin Headers and Receptors . The minimal FPGA working system board has one Altera CycloneII FPGA and its configuration serial FLASH as well as onboard oscillator, LDOs and SDRAM memory. All IO signals are routed to 4 Pin Headers to interfacing outside world. The board can freely run independently with single DC 5V power supply. The daughter card has rich resources such as 7-Segment Display, LEDs, DIP switch, Press Buttons, Buzzer, LCD / VGA / RS232 / SD Card / PS2 interface, and a prototype area for user to expand their own hardware. It is suitable for hardware engineers to verify designs before making their own hardware, for embedded engineers to test their Nios2 based embedded system like uClinux , for students to learn FPGA and hardware description language, and for hobbyists to try out any ideas they can imagine.
