Design examples are HDL code samples to help you get started with using Altera® products. Some of the design examples available include embedded processor designs with C code and SOPC Builder, digital signal processing (DSP), interface protocol, and external memory interface designs in VHDL or Verilog. All examples can be used as a starting point for your own designs, but some examples are customized for specific development kits. 

Ready-to-use design examples to deliver efficient solutions to design problems. Use these examples to instantiate individual building blocks for use in a system design. For example, variations of external memory controller applications targeting Stratix and Cyclone® FPGA families. Additional design examples can be found as associated with application notes and user guides.

Design entry/tool examples highlight the design entry process. They include samples of instantiating basic logic blocks, scripting, gate-level timing simulation tools, and debugging. Some examples of Quartus® II functions are also available. For more information about the different design entry methods, refer to the Help files in the Quartus II software.

Designs targeted for the MAX 10 FPGA device family and its development kits are available in the new Design Store.
