from Altera

The MAX® V CPLD Development Kit, from the market's leading supplier of CPLDs, provides a comprehensive, low-cost hardware platform to quickly begin developing low-cost, low-power CPLD designs. The development board is designed to prototype the most common CPLD applications, including I/O expansion, interface bridging, power management control, configuration and initialization control, and analog interface control.

With this platform, you can:

  • Develop designs for the 5M570Z CPLD
  • Measure CPLD power (VCCINT and VCCIO)
  • Bridge between two different I/O voltages (adjustable VCCIO on CPLD Bank 2)
  • Interface to external functions or devices via four connectors
  • Read and write to memories:
    • 8-kilobits (Kb) user flash memory (UFM) available within 5M570Z CPLD
    • I2C or SPI EEPROMs (user installed)
  • Come up to speed quickly with your CPLD design by reusing the example designs provided
  • Reuse the kit’s PCB board and schematic as a model for your design
