Altera FPGAs

This category is about Altera and their Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).

Posted by on in Altera FPGAs

 Altera Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are popular devices used world wide and  can be found on many high-end and not so high-end development kits and boards.  Some of the less expensive evaluations kits (and favourites of ours) that are ideal for rapid prototyping of their mid-range FPGAs include the DE0-Nano, the BeMicro CV and the BeMicro Max

The application software used to program Altera's FPGAs is known as Quartus and is available for both the Windows and Linux platforms, although sadly, just like Xilinx's Vivado, it is not available for OS X. In this blog post we overcome the hurdles required  to run Quartus on Linux's OpenSuse 13.1 (Bottle), as the time approaches to put one of our BeMicro CVs to work.
