The MAXII-Evalboard is a small and simple board for learning VHDL und testing the own VHDL-codes on a real CPLD-hardware.
For the first steps the beginner has 4 switches and a 2 digit LED-display to create and test simple functions.
Later the advancer can realize a small graphical display with 10x7 LED-pixel with a time multiplex control and a communication link via a USB-UART-Connection to a PC.
To expand the MAXII-Evalboard with a additionally hardware all pins of the CPLD are routed to pin contact strip.
The MAXII-Evalboard based on the Altera EPM570T100 CPLD and includes the JTAG-programming cable to program the CPLD via the LPT-Port.
The board is powered by the USB-port of the PC.
* Altera EPM570T100 CPLD
* 2-digit LED-matrix display
* 4 user-switches + reset
* Data-connection to PC via USB-UART FTDI FT232BM-chip
* Integrated JTAG-programming cable to LPT-port
* Wire-wrap connector to expand with additionally own hardware
* Power-supply via USB
* 6 MHz quarz clock
* 1 kHz RC-oscillator
* 2-layer PCB 83,2 x 61 mm
The board is in a final state V1.0 and is mostly tested
Following design files are available:
* Gerber-files to order PCBs
* Schematics, PCB-Prints in PDF-format
* Bill of materials
Quartus II design-samples to test the board are coming sonn
