Intel® MAX® 10 FPGA Development Kit

The Intel® MAX® 10 FPGA Development Kit provides a full featured design platform built around a 50 K logic elements (LEs) MAX 10 FPGA, optimized for system level integration with on-die analog-to-digital converter (ADC), dual-configuration flash, and DDR3 memory interface support. The board features on-board Intel FPGA Download Cable II, high-speed mezannine card (HSMC), and Pmod* Compatible expansion cards, high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) output, and dual Ethernet for industrial Ethernet applications. The MAX 10 FPGA Development Kit provides the perfect system-level prototyping solution for industrial, automotive, consumer, and many other market applications.

With this development board, you can:

  • Develop designs for the 10M50D, F484 package FPGA
  • Measure the performance of the MAX 10 FPGA analog-to-digital block conversion
  • Interface MAX 10 FPGAs to DDR3 memory at 300 MHz performance
  • Run embedded Linux using the Nios® II processor
  • Interface to daughtercards and peripherals using HSMC and Digilent Pmod* Compatible connectors
  • Measure FPGA power (VCC_CORE and VCC_IO) using the power monitor graphical user interface (GUI)
  • Reuse the kit’s PCB board and schematic as a model for your design
