Altera has become world known players with the best products. Altera FPGA is capable of producing and also became best known in the FPGA world. Altera fpga development board are able to develop the FPGA from various aspects. To start learning to use FPGA there are some things that should be known.
Here there is an explanation for all of you who want to learn about FPGA:
1. Special Software it is necessary to develop and configure the FPGA, the software was also produced by FPGA vendors, such as Altera Max + Plus II and Quartus II FPGA from Altera can configure. To get this software is not cheap, but Latera distributes a limited version of the software for free on the web. A limited version is enough for the function to use FPGA, but is not accompanied by some features devices such as high-end FPGA.
2. Hardware, although the designer can create FPGA project without using special hardware, user that make a project on FPGA design must ensure that still runs well on the hardware. The simplest way to do this is to use the development board. Altera provides it with creating Altera fpga development board.
